The Book

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


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


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


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?

About the Author

Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands, living in nine different villages before the age of eighteen. He was a bookish, daydreaming kid who found comfort in stories and nature (and he still does). After studying Law at the LSE, and working in London, he settled in rural Sweden. He built a wooden house in a boggy clearing at the centre of a vast elk forest, and it's from this base that he compulsively reads and writes. He is the author of Dark Pines.


'For all those who loved Dark Pines by Will Dean I can tell you that the forthcoming sequel, Red Snow is even better. Scandi noir meets Gormenghast. Just wonderful. Can't get enough of Tuva Moodyson...'

- Mark Billingham, author of the Tom Thorne Novels

‘Makes the blood run even colder than Dark Pines: Will Dean goes from strength to strength.' 

- Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said

'This is a crime novel of poise and polish, peopled with utterly compelling characters. Claustrophobic, chilling and as dark as liquorice. Brilliant.'

- Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle

'An ice-cold chiller, deeply layered, humorous and beautifully finessed. I adored Dark Pines, Red Snow is even better.'

- Chris Whitaker, author of Tall Oaks

'A creepy, compulsive, atmospheric thriller that chilled me even in this weather.'

- Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink & Stars

‘Chilling, tense and darkly atmospheric - Will Dean's Red Snow grips the reader and doesn't let go.'

- Isabel Ashdown, author of Glasshopper

'Bravo! What a rollercoaster… I absolutely loved it. Super characterization and enough intrigue to keep me up at night. Loved the weirdness. So bloody good. Who will play Tuva in the TV series?'

- Liz Nugent, author of Skin Deep

'What an epic series this promises to be, and what a fine heroine. I am hungry for Tuva's next case. Will Dean is truly a master storyteller.'

- Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner

'After a thrillingly good debut in Dark Pines, journalist Tuva Moodyson returns in Red Snow - a sophomore novel that exceeds expectations, and truly secures Tuva a spot as a heroine readers will be seeking to read more of for a very long time.'

- The Bookbag

'Red Snow is engrossing, chilling and original, and Tuva Moodyson is the kind of protagonist I'd follow anywhere!'

- Helen Sedgwick, author of The Comet Seekers

‘This Swedish-set thriller reminds me of Anne Cleeves' Shetland series: both are characterised by an immersive, fully-realised sense of place, and a powerful evocation of life in a small isolated community… Tuva Moodyson is uncompromising, dogged and vividly drawn.'

- Francesca Haig, author of The Fire Sermon

‘Buried myself in Red Snow last night and can confirm it was appropriately dazzling and chilling as well as tautly written and brilliantly creepy. Liquorice has never been so sinister.'

- Anna Mazzola, author of The Unseeing

‘Thoroughly enjoyed Red Snow… Great Scandi noir with an excellent heroine. Though beware - liquorice will never taste the same again.'

- Ruth Ware, author of

‘Tense, twisty and with a sense of place that draws you in and refuses to let you go until the last page. Bravo Will Dean, Red Snow is a cracker…'
