Description

The author of Let the Right One Inand Handling the Undeadserves up a masterful cocktail of suspense laced with bizarre humour in a narrative that barely pauses for breath.

On a winter trip home to the island of Domaro, Anders and Cecilia take their six-year-old daughter Maja across the ice to visit the lighthouse at GĂ„vasten.

And Maja disappears. Leaving not even a footprint in the snow.

Two years later, Anders returns to Domaro to confront his despair. He slowly realises that Maja's disappearance is not the first inexplicable tragedy to strike the islanders. Nor is everyone telling him all they know; even his own grandmother, it seems, is keeping secrets.

And what is it about the sea? There's something very bad happening on Domaro-something that involves the sea itself.

'A magician of genre fiction...between monsters outside and demons within, Lindqvist covers the haunted waterfront.' Independent
