What happened really during that tragic trip she took to the Malaysian jungle? When Justine is around, frightening events begin to happen.

Reviews

“Having just a few books under her belt, Inger Frimansson has carved out a position among the best Swedish depicters of the wayward ways of the human soul’s deepest subconscious.”

Svenska Dagbladet

 

“With this book, she stands out as one of the greatest creators of psychological tension in contemporary Swedish literature.”

GT

 

“With absolute pitch for the abnormal lying beneath the apparently normal.”

Nerikes Allehanda

 

“Inger Frimansson bears out her ability to give emotions, life and believability to the invisible oppressed, the ones who can suddenly strike back – with life-threatening consequences. Thrilling is just the beginning.”
