The Heart Keeper by Alex Dahl

The heart-breaking, heart-pounding new thriller from the author of The Boy at the Door.

How do you mend a broken heart?

It’s been three months since Alison Miller-Juul’s world fell apart when her six-year-old daughter, Amalie, died in an accident.  Three months of sympathy cards, grief counselling and gritting her teeth, but it’s still only the vodka and pills that seem to help.

Across town, Iselin Berg’s life is finally looking up.  Her seven-year-old daughter, Kaia, has survived a life-changing operation.  After years of doctors, medication and hope, they can now start thinking about the future.

When Alison uncovers a dangerous secret, she is left in turmoil.  She can now see a way to heal her broken heart, but will she risk everything to do so?

Peer & Press Reviews

Dahl follows her critically acclaimed debut, The Boy at the Door (2018), by weaving another tautly constructed web around two mothers and one child.  Crisp and insightful prose drives a first-person narrative, related in turn by Alison and Iselin, that turns slowly sinister as it draws to a haunting conclusion.  Recommended for Scandinavian-noir collections and fans appreciative of Picoult-like emotionally compelling fiction.


A well crafted, thoughtful and gripping read.


Turns the raw power of maternal feeling into a gripping plot…  The author keeps the reader on tenterhooks with a deft balance of nail-biting tension and pure sympathy for her twisted heroine.
