the unit by ninni holmqvist (2008)

this is the new ethic-thriller by swedish-author ninni holmqvist.

dorrit is 50, has no family and therefore is expendable. she is brought to an institution, where all expendables come at that age. there she can spend the rest of her life in luxury and do whatever she pleases, but she will have to take part in physical and psychological tests and donate her organs. but then the unexpected happens and she falls in love...

this book kind of reminded me of ishiguro's never let me go, it's written with the same implicitness that is almost scarier than the story itself.
