Du som ej finns

A novel on two levels of time: the front line in the fighting between Finland and the Soviet Union in 1944, and a French coastal town almost fifty years later. Two young men were in love with the same woman in the final weeks of the Finnish war; one of them disappeared in No-Man’s-Land, the other one married the woman. The couple live in retirement in France, and one day are visited by the dead man’s son who wants to find out the truth about the fate of his father.

Du som ej finns is a story about the passion and the searching of youth in a time marked by the shadow of death, and about a man who is trying to find memories of his father in this murky corner of history.
