Summary, etc.:
"Documentary filmmaker Alice Lindstedt has been obsessed with the vanishing residents of the old mining town, dubbed "The Lost Village," since she was a little girl. In 1959, her grandmother's entire family disappeared in this mysterious tragedy, and ever since, the unanswered questions surrounding the only two people who were left-a woman stoned to death in the town center and an abandoned newborn-have plagued her. She's gathered a small crew of friends in the remote village to make a film about what really happened. But there will be no turning back. Not long after they've set up camp, mysterious things begin to happen. Equipment is destroyed. People go missing. As doubt breeds fear and their very minds begin to crack, one thing becomes startlingly clear to Alice: They are not alone. They're looking for the truth... But what if it finds them first? "--Provided by publisher.

    In 1959, the entire population of the remote mining village of Silvertjärn, Sweden disappeared. Sixty years later, Alice, the granddaughter of a villager who left just before the tragedy, brings a film crew back to the eerie town, hoping to use her personal connection to develop a documentary, and to bring closure to the unsolved tale. But as soon as they arrive, strange things start happening that put everyone's lives and sanity at risk, and instead of making a movie, the trip becomes a race to survive whatever evil still has its hold on Silvertjärn. Sten's novel, already a hit across Europe, is a horror-suspense hybrid, told through a dual timeline with short chapters that keep the pacing brisk and make the novel very hard to put down. The killer setup is more than a gimmick; it is a puzzle that delivers maximum dread with clues revealed with remarkable restraint, and as the situation goes from bad to worse to terrifying, readers will revel in the chills. A great choice for fans of Clay McLeod Chapman's The Remaking (2019), Thomas Olde Heuvelt's Hex (2016), and Jennifer McMahon. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
