Join us in the Sillitoe room for an evening of noir, as Midlands-turned-Scandi sensation Will Dean discusses his hotly-anticipated sequel to the bestselling Dark Pines with local crime writer K. L. Slater.

Red Snow


Two bodies. 


One suicide. One cold-blooded murder. Are they connected? And who's really pulling the strings in the small Swedish town of Gavrik?


Two coins.


Black Grimberg liquorice coins cover the murdered man's eyes. The hashtag #Ferryman starts to trend as local people stock up on ammunition.


Two weeks.


Tuva Moodyson, deaf reporter at the local paper, has a fortnight to investigate the deaths before she starts her new job in the south. A blizzard moves in. Residents, already terrified, feel increasingly cut-off. Tuva must go deep inside the Grimberg factory to stop the killer before she leaves town for good. But who's to say the Ferryman will let her go?


Red Snow is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Dark Pines, selected for ITV's Zoe Ball Book Club.
