We Know You Remember in fantastic first UK review from The Blackpool Gazette

The UK edition of Tove Alsterdal’s award-winning novel We Know You Remember was published last week and here’s a fantastic first review that ran in a number of local newspapers, among them The Blackpool Gazette:

“What a mesmerising case it is […] set against the lush backdrop of the forested and rocky landscape of the High Coast of northern Sweden, Alsterdal’s thriller sweeps readers into a small township where the decades-old mystery of missing teenager Lina Stavred still sends powerful shockwaves through the tight-lipped, guilt-ridden residents. […] a twisting, turning plotline that weaves seamlessly between past and present, […] Moody, gripping and unpredictable, and with an incisive and sophisticated exploration of grief, guilt, memory and family, We Know You Remember brims with all the tension, intrigue and atmospherics that we have come to expect from classic Swedish noir. Add on a final, shocking twist, and Alsterdal’s entry into our Nordic Noir crime-reading scene certainly gets off to a cracking start!”

We Know You Remember was published in the UK by Faber & Faber on February 3rd.
