“Anna Aemelin is a reclusive children’s books illustrator. Katri Kling is good with figures but has no social skills. Through one claustrophobic Finnish winter, Katri contrives to move herself, her young brother and her dog into Anna’s house… A strange and disturbing psychological novel about how people relate to each other.” Bob
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.
