Summary

A year has passed. A lot has happened, but worse is to come.

The year is 1794. A young nobleman, Eric Three Roses, languishes in hospital. Some think he would be just at home in the madhouse across the road. Ridden with guilt, he spends his nights writing down memories of his lost love who died on their wedding night. Her mother also mourns her, and when no one listens to her suspicions, she begs the aid of the only person who will listen: Jean Mickel Cardell, the one-armed watchman.

Cecil Winge is six months in the ground, but when his younger brother, Emil, seeks out the watchman to retrieve his brother's missing pocket watch, Cardell enlists his help to discover what really happened at Three Roses' estate that night. But, unlike his dead brother, the younger Winge is an enigma, and Cardell soon realises that he may be more hindrance than help. And when they discover that a mysterious slave trader has been running Three Roses' affairs, it is a race against time to discover the truth before it's too late.

In 1794, the second instalment of Niklas Natt och Dag's historical noir trilogy, we are reunited with Mickel Cardell, Anna Stina Knapp and the bustling world of late 18th-century Stockholm. The city is about to see its darkest days yet as veneers crack and the splendour of old gives way to what is hiding in the city's nooks and crannies.

Critic reviews

"Niklas Natt och Dag takes the contemporary Scandinavian crime story and gives it a startlingly gruesome historical twist." (Guardian)

You wouldn’t want to live in this author’s head

The second brilliant but oh-so-dark story in this series! I struggled with the first part, impatient to get to Stockholm and the characters from the first book but it all ties so well together in the end. Natt og Dag must be a total sadist to create sympathetic and likeable characters then put them through hell both physically and emotionally. I’m hoping the third book sees the survivors take a well earned holiday somewhere peaceful!
