What readers are saying about Cabin Fever: ‘Dark, intelligent books set in bleak landscapes – who doesn’t love a Scandi thriller? Especially when it’s from the critically acclaimed author of The Boy Next Door… Tense and twisty, this tale explores obsession and mental health’ Woman’s Own ‘This story has all the props of a true Scandi-noir thriller… The descriptions of the forest are particularly powerful and the story spins off successfully in a variety of different directions, coming to a chilling and convincing conclusion’ Daily Mail ‘Cabin Fever is an utterly compelling psychological thriller – terrifying and well-crafted, with a super-tense finale up there with Stephen King’s Misery. Enjoyed the meta touches too. Dahl is undoubtedly one of Nordic noir’s brightest/darkest stars. Loved it’ JS Monroe ‘Dark and unsettling’ Crime Monthly
