'The dead are our neighbours everywhere on the island, and you have to get used to it'. It is bitter mid-winter on the Swedish island of Oland, and Katrine and Joakim Westin have moved with their children to the boarded-up manor house at Eel Point. But their remote idyll is soon shattered when Katrine is found drowned off the rocks nearby. As Joakim struggles to keep his sanity in the wake of the tragedy, the old house begins to exert a strange hold over him. Joakim has never been in the least superstitious, but from where are those whispering noises coming? To whom does his daughter call out in the night? And why is the barn door for ever ajar?

Recensioner i media

"A skilful mix of ghost story and crime thriller...this book is outstanding. It crosses genres effortlessly and keeps all its balls in the air with consummate skill." WORD MAGAZINE "If you like Stieg Larsson, try a much better Swedish writer, Johan Theorin, whose first two books (Echoes from the Dead and The Darkest Room) are now available in English. Both self-contained and set on the Baltic island of Oland, both murder mysteries with a sense of the supernatural but explicable all the same" OBSERVER "Penetrating, intelligent" THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE "Echoes from the Dead was rightly acclaimed in the UK, and this, his second, is even better. A powerful study of grief, loss and vulnerability, with a commendably earth-bound solution" GUARDIAN "Theorin builds the tension exquisitely" METRO
