Hello and welcome to the RandomThingsTours Blog Tour for Red Snow by Will Dean.

About The Book

red snow cover

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

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

TWO WEEKS 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 at the LSE and working in London, he settled in rural Sweden with his wife. He built a wooden house in a boggy forest clearing at the centre of a vast elk forest, and it’s from this base that he compulsively reads and writes.

What I Thought

I love Tuva Moodyson she is one of my favourite characters that I have discovered in the last year. She is a deaf reporter for the local paper but after an eventful year and the death of her mother she is ready to move on to better things, a fresh start down south. But she won’t be allowed to leave that easily! In the town where nothing ever really happens there is another killer on the loose and things at the liquorice factory are all a bit creepy, everyone is very secretive and the family are plagued by a tragic history.

Part of me loves that Tuva is leaving Gavrik but another is sad to see her go. It felt like she was finally starting to settle and now with Nora on the scene who knows what could have happened! But I’m also worried for her leaving because as much as she wants a fresh start she always seems to find herself in trouble and now she will have no friends to help her. Also does anyone else think we are seriously underestimating exactly how creepy Viggo is and he car being at the station feels like a bad Omen.

I really hope we get another Tuva Moodyson book, I am very much invested in this characters well-being now and I want to see what else she manages to get herself tangled up in, especially in a new place. Will she stay away or will she find herself back in Gavrik someday?

A fantastic read, very atmospheric you will need a blanket to wrap yourself up from the chill of it but maybe avoid eating liquorice while you read it!

Again many thanks to Anne and Point Blank Books for having me on the tour, all opinions are my own and I am not paid to give them.

  1. This sounds like a terrific book. I’m really intrigued by the idea of a deaf reporter.
    BTW, I found your post through @yvonnembee’s tweet about it. I love how supportive the book blogging community is of one another’s work!
