Vega Gillberg is 16 years old when the police come knocking on the door looking for her older brother, Jakob. Vega hasn't heard from him in days, but she has to find him before the police do. Jakob was involved in a terrible crime. What no one knows is that Vega was there, too. In the rural Swedish community where the Gillbergs live, life is tough, the people are even tougher, and old feuds never die. As Vega sets out to find her brother, she must survive a series of threatening encounters in a deadly landscape. As if that wasn't enough, she's dealing with the longing she feels for a boy that she has sworn to forget, and the mixed-up feelings she has for her brother's best friend. During a damp, raw week in October, the door to the adult world swings open, and Vega realises that once she has crossed the threshold there is no turning back.

Recensioner i media

'Each twist and turn ripples with menace ... Gripping.' -- Anne Cassidy, author of Moth Girls 'I loved this book. Beautifully written, with an atmosphere I could taste, October is the Coldest Month had me questioning the line between rescue and culpability in an unflinching, white-knuckle read.' -- Dianne Touchell, author of A Small Madness 'The writing is as lean and edgy as the characters ... utterly believable and utterly compelling.' -- Ellie Marney, author of the Every series 'Gritty Nordic Noir that grips you from the get go' -- Tim Pegler, author of Five Parts Dead 'The writing flows and it's hard to put down. It's not only the suspense - something in the way its written makes the story get under your skin ... in a good way.' -- Emmas Krypin, blogger 'So cool that Christoffer Carlsson is suddenly writing young adult. A thrilling whodunit set in the isolated countryside. Love it! Hope to read more about Vega, the paper-friend I have come to like so much.' -- Prickiga Paula, blogger 'A wonderfully well-written book. Exciting, beautiful, horrible, and creepy.' Stories From The City blog 'October is the Coldest Month by Christoffer Carlsson is a dense, claustrophobic thriller with a few surprising twists and plenty of suspense. En bok vid havet '...And exciting it is. The seasoned crime writer Christoffer Carlsson always has intrigue under his control, and slowly turns up the mystery and drama.' -- Andreas Palmaer Dagens Nyheter
