Psychological Thriller (View all)
|As darkness falls on 10 May, 1975, a little boy stands alone on the steps of an amusement park. The park is about to close and everyone is leaving, except this child. He continues to stand there, not daring to move. He has been told to stay right where he is. Only, no one is coming back for him.|
Having enjoyed Missing by this author, yet another one of the excellent Swedish crime writing fraternity, I came back for another. This though, while extremely well done, was so unrelentingly dark that everyone topped themselves in the end. I’d just come from there in Caribou Island. Must be flavour of the month over there at Penguin! If you like dark, slow building, well written literary thrillers, away you go; as for me I’ll pass for a month or two and opt for something warm and fuzzy!
