The Wolf and the Watchman, Niklas Natt och Dag's new mystery, combines the historical sensibilities of Hillary Mantel and C.J. Sansom with the noir instincts of Steig Larson and Jo Nesbo. In 1793 Stockholm, a watchman pulls a mutilated body from bog. What follows is a taut and gripping thriller with a pair of mismatched detectives: an ornery alcoholic veteran with the wooden hand and a consumptive, idealistic, meticulous lawyer. As their investigation takes them all over the city, we begin to see a web of deception, crime, and cruelty that stains even the most pure. As the proverb goes, homo homini lupus est - Man is wolf to man.

Frankissstein by Jeanette Winterson is a love story. The love between people. The love a creator has for their work. A love of innovation and progress. And a love for life itself. But, much like love, this novel is also witty, sexy, charming, infuriating. Deftly weaving Mary Shelley's own story of writing her most famous novel with a story about a trans doctor and a visionary professor navigating the murky ethics of the cutting edge of AI technology and of their relationship. Winterson's novel is wise, hilarious, and heartbreaking and a perfect reimagining of the world's first horror novel.
