Overview Blüchers hemmelighet

Avid Reader Award winner Alexander Løken takes us to the summer idyll of Drøbak. But all is not as it seems in the early summer sun. When crabs attack in droves and the sea radiates a dark force that threatens to pull her into its depths, it’s no wonder that Kit (14) would rather go home.

When Blücher sank in Drøbak Sound on 9 April 1940, it had a mysterious passenger on board. Gottfried, a young boy with unique and terrifying powers, sat in a bulletproof iron tank. The tank—and the boy—went down with the ship, but now, after 70 years, things have started to emerge …

When a neighbour asks whether Kit has experienced anything she can’t explain, she gets really scared. What does he know? What is happening in Drøbak Sound, and why now?

YA horror with links back to 9 April 1940.
