GENRE: Current Books, Fiction
As the Night is a fast-paced novel about how thin the line can be between a lawful life and the opposite. It is about Asynja, a young woman who is dragged into her boyfriends net of lies and drug deals gone wrong. A new mom who tries to protect her four-month-old baby and keep herself over the surface but finds herself further and further away from the life she dreamt of.
It is brutal but yet warm story with characters that stays with you long after the last page has been read.
“David Ärlemalm delivers another strong story about broken people and the dark side of society and of the Swedish capital. As the Night is a kind of social realistic crime novel that, just like the authors debut novel, feels refreshing in the stream of crime fiction.”
