Trivia Tidbit: Tom Rob Smith is creating and producing a five-part drama series for BBC Two called London Spy
By telling the story largely at Tilde's pace, the reader is subject to discovering the story at the same time as Daniel. It is a multi-layered tale which hints at hidden menace for much of the story, without admitting the alleged crime Tilde is agitated about. Largely set in remote Sweden, the setting is a formidable presence in the story. I found this book absorbing and engaging - a crime thriller unlike any I have read in recent times. The Farm deserves the accolades that have been heaped upon it.
