Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents I Will Miss You Tomorrow by Heine Bakkeid, read by Colin Mace.

'Stephen King has got himself a Norwegian crime heir' (Ekstra Bladet)

The first in a new Norwegian crime series featuring disgraced ex-Chief Inspector Thorkild Aske, a damaged man with a complicated past.

Fresh out of prison and a stint in a psychiatric hospital, disgraced ex-policeman Thorkild Aske only wants to lose himself in drugged dreams of his beloved Frei. Wild, unknowable Frei. The woman he loved. The woman he has lost forever.

Yet when Frei’s young cousin goes missing off the Norwegian coast and Thorkild is called in by the family to help find him, dead or alive, Thorkild cannot refuse. He owes them this.

Tormented by his past, Thorkild soon finds himself deep in treacherous waters. He’s lost his reputation - will he now lose his life?

Slow burner but worth it.

Really enjoyed this. Good characterisation, good story even with it being a slow burn. Narrator is one of the best I’ve heard of lately. If your a lover of Nordic crime, give it a go.

Too slow and depressing.

Crime fiction has more than its share of scarred and troubled cops/ex-cops/P,I.s The author seems to have set out to outdo all the others in respect of his lead character, Thorkild Aske, a former Chief Inspector in the Internal Affairs Dept. of the police. He was jailed for manslaughter when his girlfriend was killed in a car accident where he was driving under the influence of drugs. He tried to commit suicide in jail and only failed when the rope with which he tried to hang himself snapped. The accident and the failed suicide have left him with physical and mental scars, brain damage which cause him to visions brought on by scents or sounds, and in almost permanent torpor from the amount of medication he has to take. He has no job, lives in a dump, and is in the care of a psychiatrist. His mother has been suffering from dementia for 10 years, his father is some sort of eco-terrorist, his sister compensates for the beatings she takes from her truck driver husband by binge eating and getting fat, and his ex-wife is now living with his former boss in Internal Affairs who hates Thorkild, not least for the damage he did to the police department. The ex-wife was rendered sterile years before and now blames him for not wanting to have children before this happened, and sends him photographs of children cut from magazines. When she learned of the fatal road accident she stabbed herself in the stomach. As if that lot is not enough the author decided to give the guy chronic constipation.

You will have guessed this is not a lightweight read, and I just couldn't see any entertainment value in it, even given that reading crime and murder stories for entertainment is a bit of a paradox in the first place. The narrator seemed to caught up in the downbeat mood his reading so ponderous and tedious I almost gave up after a few chapters. I stuck with it for a but longer and it got better, but never good. I lasted about a third of the way and just couldn't take any more. I'll be returning it.

Dark, slow, deep & very good

Book: If you are a fan of the dark, dour & gloomy nordic ‘feel’ to a book ... this is for you.
I did struggle with the beginning as it seemed painfully slow ... but I held on because this is how this ‘genre’ works - so persevere.
I did pinpoint the plot etc very early on which was a tad irksome but the book kept me focused til the end. Im looking forward to the next book.
Narrator: I do like Colin Mace as a narrator and here right from page one you get the feel of the main character. I cannot say anything else incase it spoils the book.
There are a couple of odd edits with the sound level - but most wont notice.
I ‘do’ recommend this book.

An extraordinary tale

This was a novel that grew on me after a slow start. It has a very dark atmosphere, pure Nordic Noir with aspects of horror.
