  • Fabulous!

    The thing with the "Bird Tribunal" by Agnes Ravatn is that it is so spellbinding and mesmerising you won't be able to put it down once you start reading, I couldn't and flew through the book in a couple of days. Hauntingly chilling, the smouldering intrigue that starts the book leaves you with no doubt that this story is going to leave a lasting impression which guarantees you'll always remember reading. This brooding and character driven psychological thriller features only two characters, Aliss Hagtorn and Sigurd Bagge, who are eccentric and intriguing. The story is written uniquely and utterly distinctive but remains beautifully poetic and sophisticated with an enigma of escalating tension and suspense that silently wraps itself deep in your thoughts and doesn't let go. Allis leaves her life in the city, her husband and job, to take voluntary exile in a remote house on an isolated fjord to be a housekeeper/gardener. However, silent and brooding owner, Sigurd Bagge is not the old man she was expecting. As they await the arrival of his wife Nor from her travels, their relationship becomes obsessive, chilling and all consuming but with each hiding dark secrets, it soon becomes clear that atonement for past sins may not be enough. I constantly felt my senses on guard in anticipation of something happening and at times never realised I was holding my breath. I truly LOVED this book and cannot sing it's praises enough! "The Bird Tribunal" is an excellent literary example of Nordic Noir and has been impressively translated by Rosie Hedger. Although quite a quick read this breathtakingly atmospheric slow burner still packs a chilling punch that will leave you very much deep in thought. Can only be a fabulous 5 stars!!!

    Thanks for your feedback!
