Heine Bakkeid

Heine Bakkeid (b. 1974) grew up in the rugged landscape of Northern Norway, where mist-shrouded waters meet some of Scandinavia’s most striking mountain formations. Bakkeid made his literary debut in 2005 when he published a spy novel for young adults. Since then he has gone on to write several novels for young readers. The acclaimed I Will Miss You Tomorrow is Bakkeid’s first venture into crime fiction, and has earned him the critics’ recognition as a virtuoso of darkly atmospheric suspense. The novel’s dark undertones and windswept landscapes are fetched from Bakkeid’s own native North.
