So you thought life in Scandinavia was perfect?
Shot through with understated black humour and nicely balanced between tender and acerbic, this impressive novel is a forceful reminder that there is much more to Scandinavian writing than crime fiction
Teir offers a sardonic yet sympathetic critique of a multi-generational family ... remarkable eye for human behaviour ... an intelligent debut
cool yet compassionate...bitingly funny...engrossing
Written with unshowy care and thought...there's something Anglo-Americanly, unScandinavianly familiar about the way Teir tackles these domestic and emotional entanglements - only with weird Finnish names, very heavy snowfall and temperatures that reach -20 Celsius
funny, sharply observed and very readable
