Customer Review

on 17 December 2009
This novel tells the story of a small village which is relatively cut off by snow and ice. Katri and her brother Mats live above one of the shops but she decides that they should move to the large Rabbit House near the woods. Problematically the house is owned by reclusive author Anna who spends her days writinig letters and waiting for Spring to come so that she can illustrate her children's books.

The isolation of each of the characters for differing reasons combined with the oppresive blanket of snow and ice over everything make it a chilling read. The deceiver of the title appears to be Katri as she manipulates her way into Anna's life and clears the way for her ambitions.

This is a brilliant read, perfect for cold winter days. Its not quite a psychological thriller but all the elements are there; The characters get more suspicious and wary of each other throughout the novel. A great atmospheric read.
