What I'm Reading

This is an odd one for me, and I have no memory of why or when I bought this book. It's not a book I would normally buy -- translated to English from Swedish... when I looked at Amazon, it has 4-1/2 stars so maybe I checked that out before I got it.

Here's the summary:

On a gray September day, on an island off the coast of Sweden, six -year -old Jens Davidsson ventured out of his backyard, walked out into a fog, and vanished….Now twenty years have passed, and in this magnificent debut novel of suspense—a runaway bestseller in Sweden—the boy’s mother returns to the place where her son disappeared, drawn by a chilling package sent in the mail… In it, lovingly wrapped, is one of Jens’ sandals—sandals Julia Davidsson put on her son’s feet that very last morning.
