If you refuse to believe me, I will no longer consider you my son...Daniel believed that his parents were enjoying a peaceful retirement on a remote farm in Sweden, the country of his mother's birth. But with a single phone call, everything changes. Your mother...she's not well, his father tells him. She's been imagining things - terrible, terrible things. In fact, she has been committed to a mental hospital. Before Daniel can board a plane to Sweden, his mother calls: Everything that man has told you is a lie. I'm not mad...I need the police...Meet me at Heathrow. Daniel is immediately caught between his parents - whom to believe, whom to trust? He becomes his mother's unwilling judge and jury. Presented with a horrific crime, a conspiracy that implicates his own father, Daniel must examine the evidence and decide for himself: who is telling the truth? And he has secrets of his own that for too long he has kept hidden...… (mere)

Verrry close to a 5-star review.....author did a good job with pacing and resolving the story lines. Couldn't put it down the last 100 pages. ( )

Daniel receives a phone call from his father stating that his mother is not well and has been committed to an asylum. However, as he is about to board a flight to Sweden, his mother calls and says that everything his father has told him was a lie. Now Daniel must choose whether to listen to his mother's story with an open mind or believe that his mother is truly ill.

This book had me intrigued from the beginning. Daniel finds that his parents have been keeping things from him and now he is struggling with admitting his truths to them as well. It was a well written story that had me wanting to keep reading to find out what happened back in Sweden. There were stories within stories that had me flipping back to previous pages to see read with new eyes and find some clues that I might have missed before.

If you're looking for a page turner, a thriller with unexpected endings, this is it. ( )

Good thriller

The narrative is engaging and the story has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and keep turning the page till the very end ( )

This is the story of Daniel who lives in London and his Swedish Mum Tilde.
Tilde returns from Sweden where she and Chris her Husband and Daniels Dad had bought a farm.
She is really upset and tells Daniel that Chris is trying to trick her and convince her she is going mad.
She then explains everything to Daniel that happened and also a bit about her childhood.
A young girl called Mia has recently went missing, Tilde is convinced she has been murdered.

This book keeps you guessing is Tilde losing it or is Chris right to have his Wife committed to a hospital.
Daniel then goes over to Sweden once his Mum is safe in a London hospital to do his own investigation.

Good suspense and keeps you guessing. ( )

Meticulously weaving together literary themes of revenge and madness (it is easy to lose count how many woman submerge themselves in bodies of water at various points in the novel), this latest offering is a tapestry of fairytales old and new; so unsettling and oppressive that it blurs the distinctions between sanity and madness, reality and fantasy, leaving the reader guessing until the bitter end.
 
It would be easy to accuse Child 44 author Tom Rob Smith, whose latest novel is set between London and rural Sweden, of jumping on the bandwagon. The Farm lays out a pattern with which readers have become familiar. The picturesque but boring village ringed by isolated farms; a district dominated by a strong but taciturn patriarch; the disappearance of a vulnerable young woman, which is uncovered by an unreliable female investigator; the veneer of respectability that readers soon begin to suspect masks something rotten in the state of Scandi. But Smith, whose mother is Swedish, is playing a long game. The world he has created may initially appear full of enjoyably restful conventions, but any cliches in The Farm exist to wrongfoot us. This is a neatly plotted book full of stories within stories, which gradually unravel to confound our expectations.
