When the body of a woman turns up in a dumpster, scalded and wrapped in plastic, Inspector Frank Frolich is shocked to discover that he knows her ... and their recent meetings may hold the clue to her murder. As he begins to learn more about the tragic events surrounding her death, Frolich's colleague Gunnarstranda deals with a disturbingly similar cold case involving the murder of a young girl in northern Norway. An unsettling number of coincidences emerge, and Frolich is forced to look into his own past to find the answers - and to catch the killer before he strikes again.
Dark, brooding and utterly chilling, Faithless is a breath-taking and atmospheric page-turner that marks the return of an internationally renowned and award-winning series, from one of the fathers of Nordic Noir.
`This is a chilling novel about betrayal, written in a hard-boiled style that highlights the careless misogyny of Dahl's characters' The Crime Roundup in The Sunday Times
'Dahl has an international reputation for skilfully plotted police procedurals that are drenched in the minutiae of detection. This is a fine example of his talent, featuring two of his most famous detectives, Gunnarstranda and Frolich, who disagree with each other far more often than they agree ... If you have never sampled Dahl, now is the time to try' Daily Mail
`If you want your worst fears about what goes on inside a cop's mind confirmed, meet K.O. Dahl's Oslo sleuths, Gunnarstranda and Frolich ... impossible to put down' Guardian
`Kjell Ola Dahl's novels are superb. If you haven't read one yet, you need to - right now' William Ryan
