Please note the glossary at front!A psychological mystery, set in Scandinavia.This is the story of a young Danish woman, whose life is in a rut. Anna Storm is unemployed, her father is seriously ill, and her best friend and neighbour receives mysterious threats. Anna is a very ordinary antihero, so even when her friend dies unexpectedly, she keeps burying her head in the sand.Then she finds her Swedish grandmother's old notesbooks, however. Anna is spellbound by the beautiful drawings and the sweet story of her grandmother's everyday life. Finally, she has found a worthy project to engage in. As she reads her grandmother's words, it dawns on her that the books are not suitable for children at all, but that the sinister story which is hidden between the lines may give Anna a much needed push. Anna wakes up - but is it too late?For readers of my Knavesborough series: please note that this book is not a cosy mystery, and I do not recommend it for children.What the Danish readers said about the novel:"I was completely enchanted and gobbled up by the book"."The story is a brilliant crime fiction debut."
