About this product
- DescriptionDrowned, set in the idyllic countryside during a short-lived Swedish summer, gets under one's skin from the first page, creating an atmosphere of foreboding in which even the perfume of freshly picked vegetables roasting in the kitchen becomes omius. Marina has left behind her stalled relationship and floundering career in Stockholm to visit her sister in rural Skane, where she lives in a house full of books, gorgeous flowers and, as Marina soon learns, many secrets. Nothing is as it seems in this spellbinding vel of psychological suspense that combines hothouse sensuality with ice-cold fear on every page. More than a mere thriller, this debut vel delves deep into the feminine soul and at the same time exposes the continuing oppression of women in Sweden's supposedly enlightened society. Mixing hothouse sensuality with ice-cold fear on every page, Drowned heralds the emergence of a major new talent on the international scene.
