About the Author

Lars Mytting, one of Norway's bestselling writers, is the author of The Bell in the Lake, The Sixteen Trees of the Somme, and Norwegian Wood. His books, which have sold more than one million copies in 19 languages, have won the Norwegian Bookseller Prize and have been longlisted for the prestigious Dublin Literary Prize, among others.


"The world Mytting creates is immersive, including descriptions of reindeer hunting and the feel of a scythe on a whetstone. The result is a fascinating story with centuries old echoes, their muted peal resonating like the separated sister bells."
"The first novel of the trilogy was a hard act to follow, but Mytting has triumphed again with this sequel. As in the earlier novel, Deborah Dawkin is a sensitive translator. The books can be read as standalones, but there is a different richness in the combination, just as there is in the sound of two bells rung together rather than apart."
--Historical Novels Review
"A masterful and spellbinding piece of storytelling . . . The stories of three men are superbly merged, with each chapter having an enigmatic end - not wanting to end, but then instantly engrossing with the beginning of next chapter. The magnificently developed characters engage with their stories, exploring the ups and downs that life throws at them . . . A spellbinding tale with beautifully explored themes of life."
--Mystery and Suspense Magazine
"Lars Mytting's epic, enchanting historical novel The Reindeer Hunters ushers a remote Norwegian village into the modern age . . . In this spellbinding historical saga, love and lore have an alchemistic effect."
