"A windswept, wave-tossed, altogether irresistible novel of literary suspense - I truly didn't want it to end" A. J. FINN "In its scale, scope and ambition, The Sea Cemetery is truly epic" COLIN WALSH "This saga will delight fans of 'Succession'" Elle "The strength of its storytelling and its romantic energy make it a perfect example of an authentic page turner" Livres Hebdo There is no love lost between the Oslo and Bergen branches of the powerful Falck family. So when its steely matriarch dies with no will to be found, the seeds of an inheritance dispute are sown. Yet her legacy could be more damaging still. A manuscript confiscated by the secret police in the seventies holds devastating secrets about the Falcks' activities during the war. Her granddaughter Sasha is set on uncovering the truth, whatever the cost, bringing her into conflict with her father, whose family loyalty is matched only by his patriotic fervour. And in the wings waits Hans Falck, war doctor and philanderer, head of the impoverished Bergen branch, who has a few secrets of his own. It all leads back to the sinking of the SS Prinsesse Ragnhild, lost to a British mine in 1940. But can the official verdict be trusted? The shocking truth lies 300 metres under the sea. Part literary thriller, part sweeping family saga, The Sea Cemetery is a dark and dramatic tale of secrets, betrayals and doomed love, drawing on the true story of one of Norway's most devastating maritime disasters. Translated from the Norwegian by Deborah Dawkin

A windswept, wave-tossed, altogether irresistible novel of literary suspense - part thriller, part romance, part wartime drama - that's fresh yet old-fashioned, as though The Da Vinci Code, The Shadow of the Wind and TV's Succession had been smoothly blended and poured over (fjord) ice. I truly didn't want it to end. -- A. J. Finn Both an intimate family saga and a globe-trotting mystery thriller - in its scale, scope and ambition, The Sea Cemetery is truly epic -- Colin Walsh A saga which revolves around the secrets of a large Norwegian family. The strength of its storytelling and its truly romantic energy make it a perfect example of an authentic page turner. * Livres Hebdo * This saga will delight fans of Succession and enchant readers fond of complex intrig ues The Scandinavians are still the kings of chills. * Elle * In literature as in espionage, everything is a matter of seduction . . . Enlightening and captivating * Liberation *
