The Last Photograph

Thorvald Steen

His mother has lied to him all his life. He was never told that his uncle and grandfather had the same hereditary muscle disease as him. Why was it so important for his mother to keep silent about this? He has tried to make her talk, to no avail. And now his daughter is pregnant, and time is running out: They need more knowledge about the family’s past, to take advantage of the latest advances of medical science. Are there other things his mother is hiding?

The Last Photograph is a novel about contempt, shame and secrecy, and about the will to fight back. It is a free-standing sequel to The White Bathhouse, which was received with enthusiasm by both critics and readers.
