This week we are giving our readers the chance to get their hands on the literary debut from Finland-Swede writer Philip Teir. The Winter War is the prize up for grabs in our Nordic Noir & Beyond competition this week and is signed by the Scandinavian newcomer.
The Winter War follows the Paul family, a liberal, middle-class husband and wife living in the centre of Helsinki. Max is an esteemed sociologist whilst his wife Kristiina works for the public sector. However, although their lives may seem perfect on the outside, the cracks begin to show when a young journalist, and former student, offers Max sexual salvation in the midst of his midlife crisis
With Nordic series like The Legacy, and newcomer Hostages, taking audiences by storm, The Winter War is an original Scandi tale that delves deep into the family drama psyche. Recognised as ‘funny, sharply observed’ and ‘Scandinavia’s answer to Jonathan Franzen’, The Winter War is the latest literary instalment of the Nordic Noir phenomenon.
