In the Month of the Midnight Sun

(2016)
A novel by

 

"Exquisitely suspenseful, beautifully written, and highly recommended."
Lee Child


"Visually acute, skillfully written, it won't easily erase its tracks in the reader's mind."
Hilary Mantel


Sweden, 1855. 'Worst thing I ever saw...'

The Minister of Justice receives a disturbing message. A massacre on one of Lapland's mountains - a priest, a law enforcement officer and a local settler have been slaughtered by one of the indigenous Sami people.

The murderer is in custody; he refuses to talk. The Minister dispatches his son-in-law, a geologist, to investigate, for there is more than one reason to visit Blackasen: it is a mountain with many secrets, a mountain that has never been mapped.

Magnus does not journey alone. The Minister's daughter, in disgrace, is sent with him. What they discover about the murders and what lies behind them will be nothing compared to what they discover about themselves. And self-knowledge will come at a bitter price.

From the stifling heat and restricted society of a Stockholm summer to the wild landscape of Sweden's far north, this novel tells a powerful story of the collision of worlds old and new.
