The thrilling debut novel from award-winning author Lucy van Smit - called 'a writer to watch' by the Irish Times. 'The grandeur of a Norwegian setting is not the only element that sets Lucy van Smit's debut novel apart.' FINANCIAL TIMES 'Fans of Nordic noir dramas like The Killing and The Bridge will love the intricately wound plot' TEACH SECONDARY 'Shocking twists and secrets aplenty in an intense, compelling epic noir thriller' THE BOOKSELLER 'Nell's capacity to recognise the potential dangers while also yearning to be with this charismatic boy makes this taut thriller completely believable. She's a compelling heroine from a writer to watch.' IRISH TIMES Nell's family arrives in Norway in financial disgrace. She is dominated by her family - her religious father and her sister, whose cancer stops Nell from embracing her dreams of a musical career. She doesn't believe in love, either - until she falls for Lukas. But Lukas has his own dark agenda, and in this tale of hidden secrets and shocking twists, he manipulates Nell closer to the point of no return. How far is she willing to go for love? No boy is worth your soul ... in this epic noir thriller set in contemporary Norway, Nell is swept up in a dark and dangerous romance. Unforgettable, thrilling and atmospheric - there's no place to hide in The Hurting's midnight sun. You've never read anything like this! Lucy van Smit is a TV producer and The Hurting, her debut novel, was the winner of the Bath Children's Novel Award.
