Two secrets. As the past tightens its grip, there may be no escape...TV presenter Allis Hagtorn leaves her partner and her job to take voluntary exile in a remote house on an isolated fjord. But her new job as housekeeper and gardener is not all that it seems, and her silent, surly employer, 44-year-old Sigurd Bagge, is not the old man she expected. As they await the return of his wife from her travels, their silent, uneasy encounters develop into a chilling, obsessive relationship, and it becomes clear that atonement for past sins may not be enough...Haunting, consuming and powerful, The Bird Tribunal is a taut, exquisitely written psychological thriller that builds to a shocking, dramatic crescendo that will leave you breathless._________________'Reminiscent of Patricia Highsmith - and I can't offer higher praise than that - Agnes Ravatn is an author to watch' Philip Ardagh'A tense and riveting read' Financial Times'Crackling, fraught and hugely compulsive slice of Nordic Noir ... tremendously impressive' Big Issue'Beautifully done ... dark, psychologically tense and packed full of emotion both overt or deliberately disguised' Raven Crime Reads'Ravatn creates a creeping sense of unease, elegantly bringing the peace and menace of the setting to vivid life.
