The Children of the Black Creek Sanatorium

Janina Kastevik

A spooky page-turner!

Saga is forced to spend the summer holidays with her grandfather, the famous horror book writer Alvar Vigelius.  He is a sullen man living in the run-down manager’s villa in Svartbäcken, a town no one stays in voluntarily. And he isn’t particularly fond of having his 13-year-old granddaughter with him all summer either.

Saga doesn’t know yet that she will stumble over an eerie secret hidden in Svartbäcken, a secret that will lead her to a forgotten burial ground, a dead boy who needs peace of mind and an old sanatorium … With the help of her new friend, Teo, she tries to solve the mystery.

“An exciting ghost and horror story for the 9-12 year olds with many layers. Under the cleverly crafted spookyness there is a touching story about sorrow, family secrects and forgiveness.” Vi läser Magazine
