One suicide. One cold-blooded murder. Are they connected? And who’s really pulling the strings in the small Swedish town of Gavrik?
Black Grimberg liquorice coins cover the murdered man’s eyes. The hashtag #Ferryman starts to trend as local people stock up on ammunition.
Tuva Moodyson, deaf reporter at the local paper, has a fortnight to investigate the deaths before she starts her new job in the south. A blizzard moves in. Residents, already terrified, feel increasingly cut-off. Tuva must go deep inside the Grimberg factory to stop the killer before she leaves town for good. But who’s to say the Ferryman will let her go?
My Review; This is the first time I have read a book written by Will Dean and he has been highly recommended! Even though Red Snow is book two in the Tuva Moodyson series it read perfectly as a standalone with only a few references to the previous book Dark Pines, which I will be reading very shortly.
Red Snow is brilliant, I throughally enjoyed it! Well written, easy to read, fast paced and contains short chapters. I was in Tuvas world the whole time, beside her. For a small town there was a lot of drama, death and mystery. I loved how the factory seemed to be the centre point for the whole town.
Tuvas character is brilliant! I loved her. Strong, determined, friendly and a brave character. Perfect. I never expected the outcome of this book, so was shocked and angry (at a certain character) at the outcome! Brilliant. Keeps you guessing and turning those pages till the end.
I absolutely loved it. A real mystery. I cannot wait to take a step back and read Dark Pines now. Will Dean did not disappointment me, very impressed. I would highly recommend Red Snow to you all. I awarded a well deserved five stars and this story is a strong contender for my top twenty of the year already. A book that makes you go ahhh! That’s why it is called that. Perfect read for cold dark nights.
