THE SIX­TEEN TREES OF THE SOMME

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - ON SCREEN - by Lars Myt­ting, Ha­chette.

Lars Myt­ting is the au­thor of the un­likely in­ter­na­tional best­seller, Nor­we­gian Wood: Chop­ping, Stack­ing, and Dry­ing Wood the Scan­di­na­vian Way. If he can wow the world with a how-to guide about tim­ber, what can he do with fic­tion? This mys­tery en­velops you in the moody mists of re­mote Nor­way be­fore thrust­ing you into the stormy waters of the Shet­lands. Or­phan Ed­vard Hir­jifell lives with his grand­fa­ther, who fought on the wrong side in World War II and has paid the price ever since. The de­liv­ery of an or­nate cof­fin sets Ed­vard on a quest to un­ravel the mys­tery of a fam­ily feud, the deaths of his par­ents and a pe­cu­liar in­her­i­tance. No one does moody like the Scan­di­na­vians and it’s an eerie plea­sure to plunge into this ably plot­ted saga.
