THE FIRST THRILLER IN THE STOCKHOLM TRILOGY
‘A dark, atmospheric, powerful thriller, the best debut novel I’ve read in years’ Lynda La Plante
‘Ferociously noir… If Chandler and Hammett had really walked on the wild side, it would read like this’ Val McDermid
The writing’s on the wall for Harry Kvist. Once a notorious boxer, he now spends his days drinking, and his nights as an enforcer on the streets of 1930s Stockholm a city where the rich rule and the poor freeze. But one biting winter’s night he’s sent to collect from a debtor named Zetterberg, and when the man is found dead shortly afterwards, all eyes are on Kvist.
Kvist’s struggle to clear his name will lead him from the city’s criminal underworld to its opulent elite. It will bring him face to face with bootleggers and whores, aristocrats and murderers, and force him to confront his own darkness. It will be the biggest fight of his life.
Blending noir with gritty violence, Clinch is a visceral, compulsive thriller that packs a punch and leaves you reeling.
