Synopsis

In the deep winter snows of a Swedish hamlet, a strange young woman fakes a break-in at the house of an elderly artist in order to persuade her that she needs companionship. But what does she hope to gain by doing this? And who ultimately is deceiving whom? In this portrayal of two women grappling with truth and lies, nothing can be taken for granted. By the time the snow thaws, both their lives will have changed irrevocably.

The writer and artist TOVE JANSSON (1914-2001) is best known as the creator of the Moomin stories, which have been published in thirty-five languages - and are having a major relaunch through Puffin. However, for the last three decades of her life, from 1968, she turned her attention to writing for adults. Her bestseller, The Summer Book, is a modern Scandinavian classic and has sold nearly 100,000 copies in the UK alone.

Tove Jansson is a Finnish author mainly known for writing the Moomin stories. However, I would like to direct your attention towards her fiction. I loved this book because it paints a perfect and intriguing portrait of Scandinavia. Cool and quiet as falling snow, it’s full of nature; it’s so daunting, and yet so inviting as Scandinavia itself. - Telka
