In the deep winter snows of a Swedish hamlet, a strange young woman fakes a break-in at the house of an elderly artist in order to persuade her that she needs companionship. But what does she hope to gain by doing this? And who ultimately is deceiving whom? In this portrayal of two women grappling with truth and lies, nothing can be taken for granted. By the time the snow thaws, both their lives will have changed irrevocably.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I loved this book. It's cool in both senses of the word, understated yet exciting. When I finished it I read it all over again. The characters still haunt me. -- Ruth Rendell
The True Deceiver glitters with the kind of sharpness that might just cut you... It is one of Jansson's most deceptively quiet, most astonishing compositions. -- Ali Smith
Tove Jansson was a genius -- Philip Pulman
The True Deceiver is a quiet masterpiece...the novel is haunting, complex and mysterious * The Age, Melbourne *
