  • Stefan Spjut

Yet Spjut is a simpler, elegant writer - he not only captures the everyday world but effortlessly interweaves his fantastic creatures into the story without startling you out of the fiction. He's scary too, very scary. Never mind Scandi crime ficction, the time has come for Scandi horror.”
- Metro
“A deeply evocative tale that draws you to a place where human nature is threatened by the chilling darkness of the supernatural.”
