The Hitchhiker

AUTHOR: Gerwin van der Werf

Set against the eerie and unforgiving landscape of Iceland, The Hitchhiker is a tense and suffocating thriller by a prolific Dutch writer

Believe it or not, I was convinced this holiday would save my marriage.

Tiddo and his wife, Isa, have drifted apart. They don't make love anymore. Tiddo even finds their thirteen-year-old son, Jonathan, a stranger-quiet, distant and forever drawing monstrous creatures in his sketchbook.

Desperate to keep his family together, Tiddo plans a holiday to Iceland, travelling the tourist circuit in a rented campervan. On their trip, they pick up a hitchhiker named Svein, who is tall and handsome, and covered in tattoos of ancient runes. When Svein offers to guide them off the beaten track, Tiddo is conflicted. Does Svein pose a threat or offer salvation?

This psychological thriller unfolds like a fever dream amid the breathtaking beauty of Iceland, but the environment turns out to be as unforgiving as each decision Tiddo makes. Taut and compelling, The Hitchhiker is the story of a man who goes to great lengths to save what he has already lost.
