Three years ago, Lelle's daughter went missing in a remote part of Northern Sweden. Lelle has spent the intervening summers driving the Silver Road under the midnight sun, frantically searching for his lost daughter, for himself and for redemption.
Meanwhile, seventeen-year-old Meja arrives in town hoping for a fresh start. She is the same age as Lelle's daughter was - a girl on the brink of adulthood. But for Meja, there are dangers to be found in this isolated place.
As autumn's darkness slowly creeps in, Lelle and Meja's lives are intertwined in ways, both haunting and tragic, that they could never have imagined.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Not just a riveting Scandi noir thriller, Stina Jackson’s debut is also a haunting study of grief and guilt. Schoolteacher Lelle Gustaffsson is unable to move on from the disappearance of his 17-year-old daughter three years earlier. Lelle regularly travels the road where she was last seen, looking for clues and slowly imploding with torment—until the arrival of a new student in his class leads him towards solving the mystery. Thanks to Jackson’s acute sense of place and emotion, The Silver Road is an immersive and addictive read that will stay with you long after the final page.
