When the American, Sean, left Denmark he also left two bodies and a broken heart. Three months later he returns to Himmerland – but is he seeking for revenge or forgiveness?

With HIMMERLAND James Barclay has made a both entertaining and unusual debut.
In a beautiful and refined style he peels off layer after layer of the story. He whirls us into what looks like a carefully crafted plan – which perhaps turns out to be the irony of destiny.
