From the commuter who bitterly regrets falling asleep on a late-night train, to the mushroom hunter
prepared to kill to guard her secret, Last Train to Helsingor is a chilling and darkly humorous
collection of stories.

Copenhagen becomes a city of twilight and shadows, as canny antique dealers and property sharks
get their comeuppance at the hands of old ladies, and ghosts act in most peculiar ways. With echoes
of Daphne du Maurier, Roald Dahl and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, Last Train to
Helsingor will keep you awake into the small hours.

Last Train to Helsingor is written by Heidi Amsinck, a writer and journalist born in Copenhagen, who spent many years covering Britain for the Danish press, including a spell as London Correspondent for the broadsheet daily Jyllands-Posten. She has written numerous short stories for radio, including the three-story sets Danish Noir, Copenhagen Confidential and Copenhagen Curios, all produced by Sweet Talk for BBC Radio 4,which are included in this collection .
