About this book
A moody and tartly funny debut novel that builds deliberately and inexorably to a terrifying conclusion, concerning some mysteriously ill patients at a remote hospital in Finland. Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award.
In a remote, piney wood in Finland stands a convalescent hospital called Suvanto. The upper floors house foreign women of privilege, tended to by Sunny Taylor, an American who has fled an ill-starred life, only to retreat behind a mask of crisp professionalism.
