KlappentextWinner of the Rosenkrantz Award for Best Thriller of the Year
From the bestselling, award-winning Swedish author Håkan Nesser, The Living and the Dead in Winsford is a gripping and deeply atmospheric psychological thriller set on Exmoor. For fans of Gone Girl.
There is nobody in the world who knows that we are here . . .
A woman arrives in the village of Winsford on Exmoor. She has travelled a long way and chosen her secluded cottage carefully. Maria's sole intention is to outlive her beloved dog Castor. And to survive the torrent of memories that threaten to overwhelm her.
Weeks before, Maria and her husband Martin fled Stockholm under a cloud. The couple were bound for Morocco, where Martin planned to write an explosive novel; one that would reveal the truth behind dark events within his commune of writers decades before. But the couple never made it to their destination.
As Maria settles into her lonely new life, walking the wild, desolate moors, it becomes clear that Winsford isn't quite the sanctuary she thought it would be. While the long, dark evenings close in and the weather worsens, strange things begin to happen around her. But what terrible secrets is Maria guarding? And who is trying to find her?
A haunting, masterly unravelling of a dreadful crime, in The Living and the Dead in Winsford, Håkan Nesser, the bestselling, award-winning author of the Van Veeteren series, tightens the tension like a noose . . .

Inhalt/Kritik

VorwortA tense and gripping psychological thriller from award-winning Swedish crime writer, Håkan Nesser
KritikOne of the pleasures of The Living and the Dead in Winsford is the drip feed of vital information that hurtles you through its 471 pages as it probes deeper into its heroine's demons.
Nesser lives in Gotland but spends part of each year in the UK and he obviously knows his Winsford - and better still his Exmoor. The claustrophobia and comfort of village life, the terror of darkness on an exposed and desolate landscape;

Autor

Håkan Nesser, geboren 1950, ist einer der interessantesten und aufregendsten Krimiautoren Schwedens. Für seine Kriminalromane um Kommissar Van Veeteren erhielt er zahlreiche Auszeichnungen, sie sind in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und wurden erfolgreich verfilmt. Daneben schreibt er Psychothriller. "Kim Novak badete nie im See von Genezareth" oder "Und Piccadilly Circus liegt nicht in Kumla" gelten inzwischen als Klassiker in Schweden, werden als Schullektüre eingesetzt, und haben seinen Ruf als großartiger Stilist nachhaltig begründet. Håkan Nesser lebt mit seiner Frau in London und auf Gotland. 2011 wurde er mit dem "Ripper Award", dem Europäischen Preis für Kriminalliteratur ausgezeichnet.
