What secrets are hidden within the walls of a desolate farmhouse in a forgotten corner of Lapland?
Early spring has its icy grip on Ödesmark, a small village in northernmost Sweden, abandoned by many of its inhabitants. But Liv Björnlund never left. She lives in a derelict house together with her teenage son, Simon, and her ageing father, Vidar. They make for a peculiar family, and Liv knows that they are cause for gossip among their few remaining neighbours.
Just why has Liv stayed by her domineering father's side all these years? And is it true that Vidar is sitting on a small fortune? His questionable business decisions have made him many enemies over the years, and in Ödesmark everyone knows everyone, and no one ever forgets.
Now someone wants back what is rightfully theirs. And they will stop at nothing to get it, no matter who stands in their way...

Intriguing, beautifully written and as noir as Scandi Noir getsI'm such a huge fan of Stina Jackson so my hopes were sky high for The Last Snow, and it didn't disappoint. Chilling, thrilling and beautifully written, Stina has the rare ability to craft superb, page-turning novels that leave your pulse pounding and your heart aching. I can't wait for her next offering.
Exceptionally well-drawn ... another beautifully written novel from Stina Jackson ... I recommend it without
Stina Jackson describes terrible things - addiction, violence,physical and psychological abuse - in such a matter-of-fact way, in such perfect prose, that what ought to be unbearable becomes spellbinding. Each character, whether good or bad, is treated with clear-eyed compassion that implies: "There aren't any monsters. There are only people."

I really enjoyed this read. This is a family thriller, murder mystery set against the backdrop of a quiet town where many old grudges are held. I loved the writing of this and it is an excellent translation from... More
