The premise of the story was so good with dark swirling secrets that kept me glued to the Scandinavian noir by author Alex Dahl.

Kristina, an eminent psychologist, was quite involved in her patient Leah’s life until a few truths led her down to the cabin in the middle of nowhere. A manuscript Supernova awaited her that would blast her right out.

Reading this author after a long time, I was quite embroiled in the prose. But soon the prose went into descriptive lines and repetitive thoughts till Kristina reached the cabin.

All the parts regarding the manuscript and the secrets it hid were bloody explosive, and the truths made the suspense palpable. A couple of twists I could guess, and a couple blew my mind.

This book was such a dichotomy of thoughts. Had it been sharply edited and given a better flow, it would have rocked. It felt too much like a translated piece of work.

Read the beginning, skim, the midsection, then read the parts of Supernova carefully, and you will be completely enthralled.

You are her therapist.
Kristina is a successful therapist in central Oslo. She spends her days helping clients navigate their lives with a cool professionalism that has got her to the top.

But when her client Leah, a successful novelist, arrives at her office clearly distressed, begging Kristina to come to her remote cabin in the woods, she feels the balance begin to slip.

But out here in the woods.
When Leah fails to turn up to her next two sessions, Kristina reluctantly heads out into the wilderness to find her.

Nothing is as it seems.
Alone and isolated, Kristina finds Leah’s unfinished manuscript, and as she reads she realises the main character is terrifyingly familiar…

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

  1. It sounds intriguing and I love both the cover and any type of suspense involving psychologists. Thanks for the review as I hadn’t heard of this one yet. I’ll definitely add it to my TBR list.
