Overview

In this winner of the Crime Writerss Association John Creasey Dagger Award and the Guardian Best Crime and Thriller of the Year, a former Marine sniper and a newly orphaned boy race across the Norwegian wilderness, fleeing demons both real and imagined.

Sheldon Horowitz—widowed, impatient, impertinent—has grudgingly agreed to leave New York and move in with his granddaughter, Rhea, and her new husband, Lars, in Norway—a country of blue and ice with one thousand Jews, not one of them a former Marine sniper in the Korean War turned watch repairman. Not until now, anyway.

Home alone one morning, Sheldon witnesses a dispute between the woman who lives upstairs and an aggressive stranger. When events turn dire, Sheldon seizes and shields the neighbor’s young son from the violence, and they flee the scene. As Sheldon and the boy look for a safe haven in an alien world, past and present weave together, forcing them ever forward to a wrenching moment of truth.

A Financial Times Best Book of the Year, Kirkus Reviews Best Crime Novel of the Year, and an Indie Next Selection. You can find the coming-of-age story of Sheldon Horowitz in How To Find Your Way in the Dark. Additionally, this is the first novel in which Sigrid Ødegård appears. You can follow her to her next case in American by Day.
