Summary

Red Snow is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Dark Pines, selected for ITV's Zoe Ball Book Club.

Two bodies.

One suicide. One cold-blooded murder. Are they connected? And who's really pulling the strings in the small Swedish town of Gavrik? 

Two coins.

Black Grimberg liquorice coins cover the murdered man's eyes. The hashtag #Ferryman starts to trend as local people stock up on ammunition. 

Two weeks.

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?

Not the best

I found this book to be very long winded and drawn out to the extent of being boring. I persevered to the bitter end which I found not to be plausible. Very disappointed

Another masterpiece

Once again the writing style draws you in and keeps you transfixed. The single person view point is mesmerising and the story continues developing, but it is the strength of the characters that make this author truly great. I really hope that this is not the last in the series.

Gloomy very noir story.

A very dark tale with several plot holes I think and one that really relies on having read the previous novel to get the full sense of menace.
I listened but didn’t enjoy.

Not as good as Dark Pine

I was really looking forward to Red Snow as I had enjoyed Dark Pine as it was so different. However I found the second in the series to be a bit long winded and boring in places and not such a good ending. In fact I thought this ending was a bit silly. Sorry Will Fingers crossed for the next in the series

Better than Dark Pines.

This book was far better than the first. I loved learning more about Tuva and the small town she lives in. Narration was ok, but lots of mispronounced words which caught my attention as English isn't her first language, but I did find it easier to listen too than the first book.
Please bring us another instalment of Tuva's life.

Delicious gothic Scandinavian chiller

Dark, funny, with a captivating heroine and an outstanding narrator. Even better than Dark Pines

Great second book from Will Dean.

His first book showed promise and this new book shows he is developing into a great story teller. We learn more about the characters who were introduced in the previous book. The sense of setting is also developed further. An interesting well paced story although I felt the ending was rather flat and the last few chapters could have done with further work and editing. Still a very enjoyable read/listen.

A good read. I never knew what was coming and the author avoided the obvious choices.
Journalist as detective is a long used character and here I liked it.
