A blockbuster international bestseller, this gripping literary crime novel tells the story of a young, recently widowed psychologist who is irrationally afraid of the dark and whose past comes to haunt her as she tries to solve a series of crimes, beginning with the brutal murder of one of her patients.
Published to great acclaim in Sweden and across Europe, this unconventional and evocative thriller marks the first in a series by sisters Camilla Grebe and åsa Träff. Some Kind of Peace breaks the typical crime novel formulas, introducing a psychologist as its main character, a heroine of pure originality and inspiration that readers everywhere have fallen for.
Dr. Siri Bergman runs a private psychotherapy practice in central Stockholm with her best friend Aina. Since her husband's death in a diving accident, Siri has lived alone in an isolated cottage outside the city. Terrified of the dark, she drinks wine to steady her nerves and leaves the lights on when she goes to bed, unable to shake the feeling that someone is watching through her windows. When the lifeless body of Sara Matteus, a young patient with borderline personality disorder and a tragic history, is found floating in the water near Siri’s cottage, she knows that someone has been watching her—and he’s coming for Siri next. But she is not alone. With a young policeman named Markus, she begins her own investigation. As Siri's past and present start to merge and disintegrate, virtually everyone in her inner circle becomes a potential suspect.
A breathtaking reading experience, mixing hairpin-turn plot twists with gorgeously lyrical prose, Some Kind of Peace is keeping readers all over the world on the edges of their seats.
