Description
A spellbinding Scandi Noir-story in English translation by award-winning Swedish crime writer Håkan Nesser (b.1950); introducing Inspector Gunnar Barbarotti in the first of a thrilling 5-part series set in the fictional Swedish town of Kymlinge.

The Darkest Day: a December weekend sees the Hermansson family gathering to celebrate two significant birthdays, but all is not well within the clan. Simmering tensions and jealousies underlie the party atmosphere, and when two family members go missing, it is up to Inspector Barbarotti to unravel the sinister family secrets. A page-turning, crime novel exploring the psychology of the assembled characters as the mystery unfolds. Contrasted with the introspective ponderings of gentle, likeable Inspector Barbarotti. Recently divorced, Barbarotti is searching for meaning in his life and is as preoccupied with his own private ‘test’ of God’s existence as with the missing family Hermanssons.
