Listen to an Excerpt

“This is a short story about what you would be prepared to sacrifice in order to save a life. If it was not only your future on the line, but also your past. Not only the places to which you are going, but the footprints you have left behind. If it was all of it, all of you, who would you give yourself up for?”

Fredrik Backman
