From the Editor

I still remember the moment I received a call from a colleague at Thomas & Mercer about A Death in Sweden. He was holed up at his local coffee shop with the book in his hands and told me he couldn’t come into the office until he’d finished it—it was that good. He sent me the manuscript right away. I read it in one sitting and didn’t need further convincing.

Within the first few pages, I realized I was in for something very special. I immediately fell under the spell of the author’s lean, cool prose and the mystery of a man who saves the life of a fellow passenger in a bus crash. This final act of heroism reveals a secret: our hero never existed.

Set amid a world of political wrangling and murder, A Death in Sweden depicts the lives of men who carry out governments’ dirty work—the kind intelligence agencies can’t or don’t want to do themselves.

This is no ordinary spy thriller: of course it is filled with action, intrigue, and suspense, but the emotionally complex characters and their motivations, murky pasts, and shaky futures are what give this book the heart and depth to make it a truly remarkable read.

- Emilie Marneur, Editor

Review

“This superior espionage thriller has all the moral ambiguity and heart-quickening action scenes you could ask for.” —Sunday Express

“Clever, gripping and precise...Set in the dark Scandinavian forests, this is a tight and elegant novel, focusing on morality and identity.” Catholic Herald
