Dual review with Swedish first and then English!


I morgon kommer jag att sakna dig är Heine Bakkeids första kriminalroman, men jag spår honom en ljus framtid. I morgon kommer jag att sakna dig är en fängslande thriller som påminner mig om böcker skrivna Johan Theorin och S.K. Tremayne i och med att handlingen i denna bok ibland känns som om den glider in i det övernaturliga. Den där känslan av att det pågår något mer än ett vanligt kriminalfall som ska lösas.

I Will Miss You Tomorrow is the first book in the Thorkild Aske series by Norwegian author, Heine Bakkeid. It is flawlessly translated from Norwegian by Ann Bruce. Recent incarceration and mental health issues might not make ex-Police Internal Affairs investigator, Thorkild Aske quite the best candidate for the job, but guilt sees him heading to a remote island to track down a (probably-dead) young man. Rasmus Moritzen was converting an old lighthouse into an Activity Hotel, but his mother

Thorkild Aske #1

Thorkild Aske is a disgraced ex-policeman. He's got a complicated past. He's just got out of prison. He had accidentally killed a girl while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Rasmus has disappeared. His parents ask Thorkild to help find him.

I always look forward to reading a new murder mystery series. This is quite a complex story but there are parts that are just unbelievable. This is another book that you can't say too much about as it

I Will Miss You Tomorrow is the first instalment in the Thorkild Aske Mystery series set in the vast, isolated expanse of Norway. It features disgraced ex-Chief Inspector Thorkild Aske and is very different from the usual run of the mill thrillers; this is Nordic Noir at its finest and Bakkeid's first foray into the crime genre. Former Internal Affairs Interrogator Thorkild Aske is just out of prison when he is asked to investigate a disappearance that the authorities have no interest in ...more

This is the beginning of a new series, set in Norway. In Nordic Noir tradition, our hero is both damaged and flawed – in this case more than is even usual. Ex-Chief Inspector Thorkild Aske is a disgraced policeman, who we meet when he is released from prison. He was involved in the death of his girlfriend, Frei, and spends his time trying to manage his pain, both physical and mental, and desperately trying to connect with her.

Pulled from his morass of self-recrimination and despair, Aske finds

This book was out of print in Norwegian when I first decided I wanted to give this Norwegian debut author a go. I almost bought it in German instead but figured I'd just wait a little. Luckily for me the wait wasn't long and definitely worth it.

Thorkild Aske has just been released from prison. He has lost his status as a police investigator in the process. As a favor, he travels to northern Europe to look for a lost Danish man, Rasmus, presumed dead. Thorkild has enormous issues with the reason

Norwegian crime is one of my guilty reading pleasures. The start of a new crime series and another new author. I tried really hard with this book and after two attempts I did finish it. I need a medal for perseverance. The story was in one word unbelievable and the goes into the realms of pure fantasy. I had really high hopes for this book. Even the blurb was misleading. I just hope that other readers of this genre enjoy it more. Not for me.

Can I just say, how exciting is it to read the words 'first in the series'? It's such a thrill to read that this is the English language debut of Heine Bakkeid and is a series which will hopefully run and me, Thorkild Aske makes a HUGE impression.

Beginning with a shocking opener which had me falling down a rabbit hole about how long it takes someone to die from strangulation-I do not recommend googling it unless super careful with your word usage- this novel goes on to a darkly comic

I was very excited to read this. Another Nordic Noir but this time it seemed even more chilling, more remote and more unsettling than ever. That cover for starters will chill many readers. That lone boat, the rippling dark water and that title……brrrr

My thanks to NetGalley and publisher Bloomsbury Publishing - Raven Books, for the ARC.
This is a dark and atmosphere-driven story of ex-Chief Inspector Thorkild Aske's search for missing 27yr-old Rasmus, believed drowned off the coast of Northern Norway.
Aske worked for Internal Affairs and during an investigation fell in love with Frei - the girlfriend of an officer under investigation. A car crash kills Frei and disfigures Aske, with him being imprisoned for driving under the influence of drugs.

A strange and complicated thriller…

The main character of this book, Thorkild Aske, is a damaged and broken man. Fresh out of prison and a stint in a psychiatric hospital, this disgraced ex-policeman is in a hopeless state. He can only lose himself in drugged dreams of his great love, Frei, who had been killed, in a car crash that he had caused.

At the start of the narrative, he arrives at an employment agency looking for a job. Before he can take up anything that is on offer, he is asked by Frei

This was quite a strange book but one that, as I finished it and sat back and thought about it, I actually really enjoyed.
It all revolves around disgraced ex- Police Chief Inspector Thorkilde Aske who we learn more about as the book progresses so I am not about to spoil things by explaining him here. Suffice to say he has a troubled past and is still yearning for Frei, a woman he loved and lost. He has spent time in prison and also in a psychiatric hospital. He's not really a well man when

A truly atmospheric read, I Will Miss You Tomorrow was a strange and compelling read. Firstly, I have never read anything like this before. But seeing as to how the author has been called Stephen King’s Norwegian heir, I will take that as a sign to go pick up King’s book soon.
Moving on, this book is also the epitome of a thriller with an unreliable narrator. Recently, ‘domestic thrillers’ seem to have taken the reading sphere by storm and something that is common to them all is the unreliable

A murder mystery set in Northern Norway, I Will Miss You Tomorrow is atmospheric, bleak and disturbing. But also gripping. Thorkild Aske has recently been released from prison after serving a sentence for involuntary manslaughter. He had GHB in his system whilst driving, and a crash left him injured, whilst his passenger, Frei, was killed. Thorkild was in love with Frei, and is haunted by her memory. He was a serving police officer for internal affairs and so, as well as losing Frei, he has also ...more

I've just finished reading my early reading copy of I will miss you tomorrow by Heine Bakkeid thanks to Good reading magazine and Bloomsbury publishing Australia. It is a crime novel translated from Norwegian. It's the first of a new series which features the character Thorkild Aske.

It was easy to read this book within a couple of days as the plot kept my interest and I wanted to know what would happen next.

A disgraced policeman in Norway is drawn into investigating a mysterious death while at the same time trying to find peace with some ghosts of his own.

While I did enjoy this book I did sometimes find my credulity stretched almost to breaking point. I don't want to write any spoilers but the scene with the psychic lady who had offered to help with a painful shoulder went

With thanks to the publisher for the copy received. I’ve read a few Norwegian novels but I have never read anything like I Will Miss You Tomorrow. Aske was a character who like many before him has a private life that is a mess. But his private life has caused him to lose his career as an investigator in internal affairs and placed him in prison. I misunderstood most of his situation initially. When what happened to him was revealed I had a lot more sympathy, respect and liking for him.

3.5 stars. Basic crime novel with rather basic main character, but executed nicely. (Side note: why are all crime novels about grumpy older men with destructive lives?)

I liked the little supernatural touch, where one character was a medium who could talk to 'ghosts'. It was actually believable as well, which is a feat. I could however have done without the lengthy discussions about the main character's bathroom issues... but oh well.

Props for the cover art, which made me choose to read the
