‘Wonderfully creepy … This is a spectacular debut’ Daily Mail

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?

The second Thorkild Aske mystery, Scatter Her Ashes, is out now

Publisher Review

A gripping, atmospheric novel and a first outing for Aske. More are promised - I can't wait * Saga * Wonderfully creepy ... This is a spectacular debut * Daily Mail * I Will Miss You Tomorrow is a psychological drama and a noirish chiller with plenty of atmosphere and a setting that is bleak, empty, cold and unforgiving and perfect for the story... A powerful and exhilarating novel -- Paul Burke * NB * The Gothic elements in I Will Miss You Tomorrow are splendidly integrated into the crime plot, along with a strand of dark sardonic humour. It's a novel that is as much about loss and guilt as it is about the solving of a crime. At a stroke, Bakkeid has entered the upper echelons of Norwegian crime writing. -- Barry Forshaw * Norwegian Arts * It's the blend of classic crime plot, unexpected horror and wittily told scenes that makes the book extraordinary. Stephen King has got himself a Norwegian crime heir * Ekstra Bladet, Italy * A star has been born * Thriller Nord, Italy * A thrilling story set in the harsh milieus of northern Norway * Dagens Nyheter, Sweden * A truly great crime novel that far exceeds expectations * Femina, Denmark * An extraordinary debut * Sondag, Denmark * Accomplished and well-executed crime plotline ... There is something rare and tender about it ... It's a book about loss, love, shame, guilt and greed. And it's a great one * Vildmedkrim, Denmark * Riveting... The dialogue between Aske and his former boss in particular sparkles * BOK, Norway *
