'A vivid, fable-esque exploration of love when it is too much.' Ali Land, author of Good Me Bad Me

The multi-award-winning international bestseller.

Suspenseful and heart-breaking, Resin is the story of what can happen when you love someone too much – when your desire to keep them safe becomes the thing that could irrevocably harm them.


Liv died when she was just six years old. At least, that’s what the authorities think.

Her father knew he was the only one who could keep her safe in this world. So one evening he left the isolated house his little family called home, he pushed their boat out to sea and watched it ruin on the rocks. Then he walked the long way into town to report his only child missing.

But behind the boxes and the baskets crowding her Dad’s workshop, Liv was hiding. This way her Dad had said, she’d never have to go to school; this way, she’d never have to leave her parents.

This way, Liv would be safe.


'Liberatingly original. Exceptionally gripping.' Karin Fossum

Resin is the winner of Scandinavia's most prestigious literary awards: The Glass Key, The Golden Bullet, Best Crime Novel from the Swedish Crime Writer's Academy and The Harald Mogensen Award.
