On Midsummer’s Eve, 1974, Annie Raft arrives with her daughter Mia in the remote Swedish village of Blackwater to join her lover Dan on a nearby commune. On her journey through the deep forest, she stumbles upon the site of a grisly double murder–a crime that will remain unsolved for nearly twenty years, until the day Annie sees her grown daughter in the arms of a man she glimpsed in the forest that eerie midsummer night.

Like Gorky Park and Miss Smilla’s Sense of Snow, Blackwater is a unique thiller in which the hearts and minds of the characters are as strikingly compelling as the atmospheric northern landscape that envelops them.
