Description

<h2>A gripping, suspense-filled thriller from the author of the internationally best-selling Hammarby series. A deadly secret haunts a group of strangers who cross paths in the snow of a Swedish midwinter... </h2><h2>'Plotted with the complexity of a labyrinth' <i>New York Times</i> </h2><p>January in Gotland. The days are short, the air is cold, and all the roads are covered in snow. On a deserted, icy backroad, these wintry conditions bring together a group of strangers with a force devastating enough to change their lives forever. A deadly accident and two separate crimes leave victims in their wake.</p><p>Four years later, a single phone call is all it takes to bring back the terror of that day and to set in motion a plot for revenge. For Sandra it started as an unremarkable winter's day of shopping followed by a kind gesture from a stranger. For Jeanette it began with the thrill of an illicit rendezvous with her lover. Both women had driven past the same icy ravine. Only one was in the car that caused a deadly crash. Only one left a man to die alone in the snow...</p><p>Each carried a secret from that day, a secret that, if revealed, could connect them to a larger, more terrible transgression. And there is someone out there who knows the whole picture, and who would rather kill than allow it all to come to light...</p><p><b>Reviewers on Carin Gerhardsen:</b></p><p>'The author's mastery of tone imbues a largely tragic tale with touches of humor. By turns touching and terrifying, this nail-biter deserves a wide audience.' <i><b>Booklist</b></i> <br />
'Carin Gerhardsen writes so vividly, like she is painting with words, gripping your heart and soul in an ever-tightening tourniquet.' <b>Peter James</b> <br />
'Complex, slow-burning thriller with a final twist that leaves no one unscathed.' <b>Booklist</b></p>

Quotes

'Plotted with the complexity of a 19th-century labyrinth'

New York Times

'Skillfully plotted... The author's mastery of tone imbues a largely tragic tale with touches of humor. By turns touching and terrifying, this nail-biter deserves a wide audience'

Publishers Weekly Starred Review

'A very exciting new voice from the North'

Ragnar Jónasson

'Gerhardsen was a mathematician before becoming a writer, which might explain the precision with which she's mapped her characters' backstories and trajectories. <i>Black Ice</i> is both an intricate puzzle and a probing psychological study of flawed people as they navigate a series of moral dilemmas, often making the wrong choice or misunderstanding the actions of another. Ultimately, the book's greatest strength lies in its messy humanity'

Air Mail

'All our speculations and conceptions concerning the plot's reality are bound to fall apart as Gerhardsen enjoys teasing her readership in a masterful manner, while the main characters are drawn in a way that leaves room for various theories regarding their actual role in the story's events'
