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. After studying Law at LSE, and working many varied jobs in London, he settled in rural Sweden with his wife. He built a wooden house in a boggy forest clearing 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

'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
