Art expert Emma Lindahl is anxious when she's asked to appraise the antiques and artefacts in the infamous manor house of one of Sweden's wealthiest families, on the island of Storholmen, where a young woman was murdered nine years earlier, her killer never found.

Emma must work alone, and with the Gussman family apparently avoiding her, she sees virtually no one in the house. Do they have something to hide?

As she goes about her painstaking work and one shocking discovery yields clues that lead to another, Emma becomes determined to uncover the secrets of the house and its occupants.

When the lifeless body of another young woman is found in the icy waters surrounding the island, Detective Karl Rosén arrives to investigate, and memories his failure to solve the first case come rushing back. Could this young woman's tragic death somehow hold the key?

Battling her own demons, Emma joins forces with Karl to embark upon a chilling investigation, plunging them into horrifying secrets from the past – Viking rites and tainted love – and Scandinavia's deepest, darkest winter…

“Gripping gothic thriller”

This book was an enjoyable page turner- it throws you straight into the story and propels you along at a great pace. I very much enjoyed the Norse mythology element and was genuinely shocked at the twists and turns... More

“Immersive, suspenseful and surprising”

I do love Johanna Gustawsson’s writing, but in this first book of a new series, she positively exudes a gothic evil that chills the bones and makes you cower under the duvet every time you hear a creak in the night.... More
