Swedish Reading Club (on Zoom)

Some Kind of Peace

On October 18, the Swedish Reading Club will be discussing Some Kind of Peace by Camilla Grebe & Åsa Träff. Our meeting will be held online on Zoom.

“This powerful first in a new thriller series from Swedish sisters Grebe and Träff introduces a delightfully flawed heroine, Dr. Siri Bergman, a psychologist who sleeps with the lights on… The action moves swiftly to a surprising climax.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review, Pick of the Week
