Almost gothic, the house by the lake should be tranquil and picturesque, but it isn't.
A unusual and clever psychological study where the protagonist is also the antagonist. But does he realise this?
⭐Publisher featured review.
When the in-laws outstay their welcome. A simple story, simply told. A nightmare.
Nordic noir, set in a magical Swedish landscape. A study of the dark side of marriage, motherhood and friendship.
The title of this psychological thriller suggests that this is a tale of domestic abuse or something weird. The 'perfect' one-dimensional husband is, obviously, too good to be true (he even looks like George Clooney) and we quickly realise that he is something more sinister.
