Dark Pines by Will Dean

Five villagers.  Six hundred square kilometres of Swedish forest.  One reporter.  Two bodies…

Eyes missing, two bodies lie deep in the forest near a remote Swedish town.

Tuva Moodyson, a deaf reporter on a small-time local paper, is looking for the story that could make her career.

A web of secrets.  And an unsolved murder from twenty years ago.

Can Tuva outwit the killer before she becomes the final victim?  She’d like to think so.  But first she must face her demons and venture far into the deep, dark woods if she wants to stand any chance of getting the hell out of small-time Gavrik.

Peer & Press Reviews

A dark and gripping debut… an intriguing and distinctive addition to the Scandinavian Noir landscape…  Dean is definitely an author to look out for in the future.

Big Issue

The tension is unrelenting, and I can’t wait for Tuva’s next outing.

Val McDermid

Memorably atmospheric, with a dogged and engaging protagonist, this is a compelling start to what promises to be an excellent series.

Media adaptation

Steve November and Sarah Conroy of Lionsgate have acquired the TV rights to Dark Pines from James Carroll at Diane Banks Associates for a multi-part television series centred around the lead character Tuva Moodyson.

The TV deal came after news that Oneworld’s literary crime imprint, Point Blank, has acquired three more Tuva Moodyson novels in a substantial six-figure deal.  (Red Snow, the sequel to Dark Pines, is expected in January 2019.)
