'This book! Swedish, confessional, shockingly honest about desire, love, loss. I've read it twice now and can't stop thinking about Carolina. Utterly compulsive' MARIAN KEYES THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER The last night, I fall asleep believing we have thousands of days ahead of us. We don't. This night is our last night. One evening, Carolina says good night to her partner, Aksel. Things have been tough for both of them recently, especially with an eight-month-old son to raise. So when Aksel dies unexpectedly in the night, Carolina's world is turned upside down. Based on the author's own experiences, Let's Hope for the Best details the small moments of life before and after tragedy. It's a story about motherhood, family and the difficulties of loving someone who is distant, and then who is gone. Brave and unsparing, packed with emotion and humanity, it is about how the life we envisage for ourselves can be altered in an instant. What if one moment changed everything you've ever known?

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book! Swedish, confessional, shockingly honest about desire, love, loss. I've read it twice now and can't stop thinking about Carolina. Utterly compulsive -- Marian Keyes
Heart-wrenching and unsettling -- Rowan Coleman, internationally bestselling author
A moving and tender work of autofiction that depicts the obsessive interiority of grief * Kirkus Reviews *
The kind of book that you'll never forget. It gets under your skin. It moves into the heart. The story is so vulnerable and direct that one cannot avoid caring for the people it is about, and to love them ... I have never read a book that, so beautifully, puts into words how difficult it is to live without - but also to live with - the one you love. One of the best, most touching and most relevant books I've ever read * Randiglensbo.dk *
An electrifying read. A book that forces itself upon you, impossible to resist and difficult to pause * Dagens Nyheter (SE) *
A rich, honest, and poignant portrayal of the many dimensions of grief * Alba.Nu *
One of the best books I've ever read ... You're drawn into her raw grief, anger, guilt, bitterness, fear and loss - all of it, without any filter ... Real and alive * Sidses Bogreol *
Breathtaking ... Astoundingly well told * NWT *
A magnificent reading experience * Magasinet Liv *
Honest and unvarnished ... Setterwall writes about the many nuances of grief, but also about love, family life and expectations of life before and after tragedy * Litteratursiden.dk *
