Olivier Truc was born in France in 1964. He has worked as a journalist since 1986, and has been based in Stockholm since 1994, where he is currently the Nordic and Baltic correspondent for Le Monde and Le Point. As a reporter, Olivier Truc covers subjects from politics and economics to social issues like immigration and minorities. He has also produced TV documentaries, including one that portrays a group of Norwegian policemen in Lapland. This is his debut novel.
Truly memorable..the account of seeing the first gleam of sunshine after forty days of total darkness will stay with me. * Literary Review * With storylines that shoot along as if over ice, yet with unusual depth, Forty Days Without Shadow has won numerous awards and justly so. The author, the Nordic correspondent of Le Monde, has a deep understanding and love of the furthest stretches of his territory. Highly recommended: just as we might have thought Scandinavian crime was exhausted, a brilliant new voice comes along. * Independent * A powerful Nordic thriller. * Librairie l'usage du monde * A dark, highly original novel. * Livres Hebdo * Original, fascinating, with no concessions to surface '"exoticism". * Librairie L'Atelier * A remarkable, triumphant thriller. * Telerama Magazine * Forty Days Without Shadow is more than a splendidly told murder investigation and its consequences. It is a fascinating telling of bloody history, culture and indigenous people struggling against all odds to survive. The winter scenes are frighteningly real, and at times leave you breathless and filled with awe. A book you will not forget. A powerful, ingenious piece of crime noir. * New York Journal of Books *
