“Elegant and incisive, The Cold Song exposes a complex family drama that revolves around the day a beautiful young woman goes missing. When she is found murdered, her family members must sort out their suspicions of one another and question their own degrees of responsibility for her death. This novel is a startling meditation on loss, how we deal with it, how it echoes through generations, and how our mistakes cause us to lose the ones we love.”
— Jenny Patino Cervantes, City Lit, Chicago, IL

Staff Reviews

Norwegian bestselling novelist Jon Dreyer attempts to hide his spectacular case of writer’s block (along with a few peccadillos) from his wife Siri, an accomplished restaurateur and chef, who is also struggling with her elderly mother’s little drinking problem. The discovery of the body of Siri and Jon’s summer nanny complicates the family secrets. The layers of all-too-common family dynamics and Ullman’s skill at peeling away her story in a series of flashbacks makes this a great summer read. If you liked The Dinner by Herman Koch and want something with a bit more meat, this is your book. -Kris' June Staff Pick, 2015
