Rock Paper Scissors by Naja Marie AidtRock, Paper, Scissors by Naja Marie Aidt

Aidt, a well-known Danish poet, makes her novel debut with an intense, gritty crime drama. Thomas, a stationary store owner, discovers a dark secret in a toaster (like you do) about his criminal father after his father’s death. What Thomas learns will send him spiraling down a path of violence and destruction. If dark, disturbing, and amazingly well-written books are your thing, this is one you won’t want to miss! It’s one of the year’s best.
