Hillary's February 2015 pick
Wolf Winter, by Cecilia Ekbäck
The year is 1717; Maija and her family have migrated from Finland to the border between Sweden and Lapland in search of a better life. When one of Maija's daughters discovers a murdered priest near their remote homestead, both the church and the local aristocracy seem eager to cover-up the crime.
As one of the worst winters in memory descends, and Maija's husband leaves his wife and daughters to look for work in the city, Maija is left to confront not only hostility to her search for the truth, but forces of nature that threaten her family's existence.
Ekbäck is one of those writers who manages to hit the sweet spot between literary fiction and page-turner, adept at evocative scene-setting as well as snappy pacing. If you are a fan of historical fiction, Scandinavian mysteries, or both, Wolf Winter is sure to please.
