Åre is one of most famous tourist resorts in Sweden, but Viveca Sten uses the tourist imagery as an entry point to a more serious description. Her Åre becomes an entire community, with winners and losers.

I have never been to Åre [..] Now I am dying to go. I really like Hidden in Snow and am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Just like in the Sandhamn Series Sten proves her skill at balancing a suspense plot with a relationship novel. The hunt for a murderer is thrilling, but just as important is following the main characters’ everyday lives.
Viveca Sten’s new crime series delivers wintery suspense that will kick starts your adrenaline.

Great flow, lovely descriptions of the mountain scenery and I want to keep reading [..]

Sten humanizes the murder victim and spends time on what loss can do to a family that is left. She uses nature and the weather, both beautiful and seriously deadly. It creates a longing for winter and snow and the Swedish mountains.
Snow falls profusely and Viveca Sten describes the scenery – everything from Åre, Duved and Järpen to the isolated Ullå Valley – with a lot of love that also encompasses the large and well thought through character gallery and plot that takes unexpected and interesting turns.

Like the star Viveca Sten is she quickly throws readers into the drama in the first pages of the prologue […].
The storytelling technique is at an elite level moving elegantly between the different narrators: mostly Hanna and Daniel’s but other as well. The construction of the characters is of an equally high standard; we get to know many interesting characters. This is a first class suspense read […]
We are met with short chapters that ensure a fast pace from start. The scenery depictions are amazing [..] The story is suspenseful, and I don’t find it all predictable [..] I am already looking forward to the next part.
