The Butcher of Liseleje

Novel / Tiderne Skifter

Danish title: Slagteren i Liseleje
The book is not yet available in English 

At first glance, Judith Abild Behring seems to be the quintessence of a nice and charming old lady: Meticulous and excellent in a kitchen. She is very caring, apparently, with a fondness for animals. And … uh … she flirts a little too, doesn’t she? With the postman, for example. Appearances can be deceptive, and this old lady has both skeletons in the cupboard and a hidden agenda.

The Butcher of Liseleje tells a both hilarious and grim story, full of surprises. The reader is presented with a number of human destinies – and sent on a journey full of contrasts where truth is fighting against deception and horror is lurking behind the idyllic countryside.
