"With a genuinely transporting sense of place and languid summer vibe, this is a stimulating and articulate novel driven by character and ideas, and is thus inevitably more about questions than answers." - Isabel Costello "Uncanny and intriguing, and set against a captivating natural backdrop of forest, tarns and long Nordic summer nights, the story quietly unfolded by the Finland-Swede Teir explores coming-of-age, adulthood and the cracks between expectation and experience." -Sunday Times "Teir is especially good at inhabiting the minds of his younger characters and there's an understated dark humour throughout....A very interesting read that will have you thinking about it after you have put it down."-Belfast Telegraph PRAISE FOR THE WINTER WAR 'Scandinavia's answer to Jonathan Franzen ... a remarkable eye for human behaviour' -Telegraph "A darkly comic, satisfying novel of richly rendered inner tensions played out in interpersonal relationships." - Kirkus
