Translated into English by Rosie Hedger, The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn is a suspenseful psychological thriller.
Told from the perspective of Allis Hagtorn, who starts work as a housekeeper and gardener for the mysterious Sigurd Bagge, in his remote house on an isolated fjord.
Allis and Sigurd gradually develop a chilling relationship, which will keep you on the edge of your seat.
This is deeply atmospheric, with the suspense slowly building until it reaches the dramatic climax.
In short, this Nordic Noir (or, if you prefer, Scandi thriller) is a quick read with tension that slowly gathers pace and will keep you hooked all the way through.
