WINNER OF SWEDEN’S BEST CRIME NOVEL AWARD

On the idyllic island of Öland, off the coast of northern Sweden, a young couple from Stockholm tries to start life afresh. For Joakim and Katrine Westin, reclaiming a long-neglected family manor will be a labor of love, as they slowly bring the sprawling home back to life and introduce their two children to the island’s woodlands, glens, and beaches. But in the Westins’ new home, there are things that cannot be repaired, lives that have gone wrong, and secrets that have followed them. When the family is struck by tragedy, it’s up to grief-stricken Joakim to put together a puzzle of inexplicable loss, unbearable suspicion, and tangled lives. In this powerhouse of suspense–at once a crime novel and a searing family drama–a home built as a shelter from the sea becomes a human storm of murder.

Synopsis:

Winner of Sweden's Best Crime Novel Award, "The Darkest Room" is the latest thriller from the bestselling author of "Echoes from the Dead."

Synopsis:

Joakim Westin, a grieving widower whose young daughter begins hearing ghostly voices, must solve a puzzle that includes a walled-in room and his community's mysterious glowing lighthouse.
