Thorkild Aske returns in the second in this brilliant, darkly funny crime series from a fresh voice in Nordic Noir
Disgraced, damaged former police officer Thorkild Aske has stopped taking his painkillers after his last experience searching for the missing in northern Norway. Wracked by withdrawal and desperate for work, he reluctantly agrees to investigate the disappearance of two schoolgirls for crime fiction superstar Milla Lind – but Lind clearly has more invested in the case than fiction.
When Thorkild discovers that her previous investigator was murdered on the job, no-one will explain why – all he has to go on are files about unrelated cases from all across Norway. Oh, and his ex-wife wants to talk. What could possibly go wrong?
PRAISE FOR I WILL MISS YOU TOMORROW:
'Wonderfully creepy … This is a spectacular debut' Daily Mail
'A gripping, atmospheric novel and a first outing for Aske. More are promised – I can't wait' Saga
'The Gothic elements in I Will Miss You Tomorrow are splendidly integrated into the crime plot, along with a strand of dark sardonic humour. It’s a novel that is as much about loss and guilt as it is about the solving of a crime. At a stroke, Bakkeid has entered the upper echelons of Norwegian crime writing.' Barry Forshaw, Norwegian Arts
