'The Norwegian Chandler' Jo Nesbo
'One of my very favourite Scandinavian authors' Ian Rankin
MORE THAN FIVE MILLION BOOKS SOLD WORLDWIDE

A dramatic, poetic and page-turning thriller from Norway's most dazzling crime writer.

On a frosty January day in Bergen, Private Detective Varg Veum is visited by a prostitute. Her friend Margrethe has disappeared and hasn't been seen for days. Before her disappearance, something had unsettled her: she'd turned away a customer and returned to the neighbourhood in terror. Shortly after taking the case, Veum is confronted with a brutal, uneasy reality. He soon finds the first body - and it won't be the last either. His investigation leads him into a dark subculture where corrupted idealism has had deadly consequences.

Dark secrets lurk everywhere, as the murky pattern of wounded people, worm-eaten lives, and hearts long grown cold proves deadly . . . for someone.

Translated from the Norwegian by Don Bartlett
