‘Intensely gripping.’ CHRIS WHITAKER

The case was closed.
Lina Stavred went missing 20 years ago. A local boy confessed to her murder – but the body was never found.

The records were sealed.
Since then, the people of Ådalen have avoided talking about that painful summer, preferring to leave the past untouched.

But we know you remember.
Now Lina’s murderer has reappeared. This is detective Eira Sjödin’s chance to untangle years of well-kept secrets – but the truth is something Ådalen would rather forget.

Among today’s abundant crime novels, it’s rare to find one that demands a second reading for its language and insight. We Know You Remember is one of that small group.

What a terrific twisting roller-coaster of a thriller - great characters, a terrific sense of place and a blind-sider of a payoff.
