Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands and had lived in nine different villages before the age of eighteen. After studying Law at the LSE and working in London, he settled in rural Sweden where he built a house in a boggy clearing at the centre of a vast elk forest, and it's from this base that he reads and writes. His debut novel, Dark Pines, was selected for Zoe Ball's Book Club, shortlisted for the Guardian Not the Booker prize and named a Daily Telegraph Book of the Year. The second Tuva Moodyson mystery, Red Snow won Best Independent Voice at the Amazon Publishing Readers' Awards, 2019.

Customer Reviews

GUYS. We need to talk about this book. I caught reviews of this one floating around on Twitter and it just peaked my interest. I don't know why, I don't know what it was that made me HAVE to have this book. So I ordered it in, picked it up and then never wanted to put it back down. THIS BOOK. I am in love with Will Dean's writing style. It is so perfectly descriptive, and absorbing - I genuinely felt transported into this story. I could smell the food. Smell the air. Feel the cold. See the light between the trees. I have no idea how he does it but I am in love with it. It is a book that while one part of me wanted to race through and see what happened next, the larger part of me wanted to savour every page and chapter. Which I did, and still, burned through this in one day. Because the story itself is so perfectly creepy and wonderful. A body is found deep in a forest near an isolated Swedish town, with its eyes perfectly carved out. A body that matches the MO of a killer 20 years prior. Tuva, a deaf local news reporter, finds herself investigating the story that could make her career, and pitted against a small town of deeply intwined relationships and secrets. I could talk forever about this book. I will re-read this book again and again because I find it SO SATISFYING. Most of all, I am so excited that Will has another book coming out next year. If you want a 10⭐️ book recommendation- this one is it for me, order a copy and support this new author, because he has got MAD skills.

Dark Pines first came to my attention by chance, but it’s brief synopsis was enough to purchase a copy. And, I’m rather glad I did. The main character, Tuva, is just who I like to see in a protagonist- she is both flawed and vulnerable, yet brave and determined. And her curiosity goes far beyond her remit as a journalist. This book has many things, and should you be a lover of crime fiction you won’t be disappointed. The Scandinavian setting, with its snow and deep forests only makes it more atmospheric, and having read this story I’m rather pleased there is to be a further one later this year. I look forward to meeting Garvik’s disfunctional residents again.
