A bipolar artist hunts down a killer in Peter Swanson’s best thriller yet and two Nordic noirs unsettle and delight Artist Henrietta “Hen” Mazur and her husband, Lloyd, are politely enduring a tour of their new neighbours’ home in the fictitious West Dartford, Massachusetts when Hen spots something in Matthew Dolamore’s study that almost causes her to faint – an unusual fencing trophy she immediately identifies as stolen from the apartment of a man killed over two years ago in an unsolved murder. “Her vision blurred, and her legs felt as though water were rushing through them, then she gathered herself.” As Matthew watches her reaction intently, Hen and Lloyd leave, but he doesn’t think much of her suspicions: Hen, it turns out, is bipolar, and over a three-month period became intensely obsessed with the murder of the man, Dustin Miller, reading everything she could about the case and studying every unsolved homicide in New England for the past 10 years in her desperation to crack the case. So Hen decides to look into Matthew herself. “They had a secret, the two of them, and there was no better way to start a friendship than with a secret.”
