Fredrik is a re­tired doc­tor ek­ing out his days alone on a re­mote Swedish is­land when his house burns down. This pro­foundly gloomy yet ul­ti­mately hope­ful novel – the last from the late grand mas­ter of Scan­di­na­vian noir – re­volves around dis­cov­er­ing who could have been re­spon­si­ble for this sense­less crime.
