After learning that his half-brother Ronny has died, Per Boman moves into Ronny’s apartment and starts examining what he left behind. It turns out Ronny’s life was full of secrets, and soon Per finds himself in an unbelievable mess, in which truth and lies become increasingly indistinguishable.
A sibling of Hans Gunnarsson’s acclaimed novel All Inclusive, Nightside playfully explores identities and genres in the spirit of Paul Auster, while also offering terrifying noir about the dark recesses of the soul.
