DJ´s Bait in the Box # 27

[This beautiful box belongs to Julia, A Piece of my Mind]

A Scandinavian thriller written by an experienced writer.

“He placed the burden on a bed of soft moss. He got up and wiped the sweat from his brow; it felt hot. This does not look good, he thought, not in any way. Emotions surged inside him, a mixture of panic and rage, nothing ever worked out for him, it was a mistake, the whole thing. … Fate had played a mean trick on him and dealt him a rotten hand; now he was being hurled down towards condemnation and denunciation. Hanging´s too good for him, people would say, lock him up and throw away the key; a man like him should never be allowed out again.”

The Rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away. The book will be reviewed on Friday as usual.

Gæt en bog # 27.
En moderne spændingsroman skrevet af en skandinavisk ekspert indenfor genren.

”Han lagde sin byrde på en bund af blød mos. Han rejste sig og tørrede sveden af øjenbrynene; det føltes varmt. Det her ser ikke godt ud, tænkte han, ikke på nogen som helst måde. Følelser vældede op inden i ham, en blanding af panik og raseri, der var intet der fungerede for ham, det var en misforståelse det hele. … Skæbnen havde spillet ham et ledt pus og givet ham en dårlig hånd; nu blev han hvirvlet ned mod afvisning og fordømmelse. Hængning er for godt til ham, ville folk sige, lås ham inde og smid nøglen væk; en mand som ham skulle aldrig lukkes ud igen."

I sense water in this ... and the death of a child (a topic this author has dealt with several times). Assuming that I'm right ... because I haven't read this one yet.

Kerrie, I am afraid I have been a bit unfair to my Australian readers this week. I can see now that I should have waited at least one month ;)
