Alan Harrison is a perfectly ordinary, middle-class, middle-aged and happily married man.
But when his wife, Susan, suddenly dies, his life starts to disintegrate.
Rather than stay at home where the memory of his wife still haunts him, he decides to spend the summer in Sweden at the invitation of his in-laws.
On the shores of Lake Malaren, he discovers fresh reasons for living and a contentment he had not previously thought possible.
But unexpected guests arrive to disturb his new-found peace and he is forced to take unprecedented steps to recover it.
Set against a backdrop of stunning Swedish scenery, MALAREN shows us the redemptive power of physical labour and male bonding as an unlikely hero struggles to overcome his challenges.
