Synopsis

When the Snow Fell by Henning Mankell

Joel is growing up. He is getting interested in girls. They all look pretty impossible for a motherless boy in Northern Sweden. Especially as his sailor dad is keen to drown his sadness in drink, and all the local matrons are watching the pair of them. And then he saves old Simon from a frozen death in the woods, and Joel becomes a local hero.
