Never Coming Back, by Hans Koppel

A harrowing and unforgettable thriller that has taken Sweden and Britain by storm—a twisted plot of revenge and tragedy by a writer whose edgy and gritty style evokes Henning Mankell and Hakan Nesserhttps://librarytweets.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/1605983918.jpg

Mike Zetterberg lives with his wife Ylva and their daughter in a house just outside Helsingborg in Sweden. One evening, Ylva doesn’t come home as expected. Mike passes it off as a drink with a work friend, but when she’s still missing the next day, he starts to worry. As Mike battles suspicion from the police and his own despair, he is unaware that Ylva is still alive, just a stone’s throw from his own home: Ylva has been drawn into a twisted plot of revenge and tragedy that leads back into her and her abductors’ shared past.

Given the sudden and mysterious circumstances of her disappearance, Mike becomes the chief suspect. But what no one knows is that she’s being held hostage in the cellar of the house across the street. A secret camera has been set up in her own home so that Ylva can only watch her family on the screen. They cannot see her—and they most certainly cannot hear her scream.

This superbly-told tale of horrific tragedy and brutal revenge—which has obsessed readers across Scandinavia and England for the past year and climbed numerous bestseller lists—now makes its American debut.
