The discovery of a body in the freezing waters of Oslo Harbour spark an investigation that takes the Oslo Detectives right to the heart of the government ... with life-shattering results. The godfather of Nordic Noir is back... ***Shortlisted for the Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel of the Year*** 'Fiercely powerful and convincing' LoveReading 'A masterclass in plotting, atmosphere and character' The Times 'Lena Stigersand, one of the decent, talented, hard-working Oslo police detectives in Dahl's ensemble procedural series, takes center stage in this excellent sixth instalment ... fans of Scandinavian noir will be eager for Dahl's next book' Publishers Weekly **Book of the Month** ____________________ When a dead man is lifted from the freezing waters of Oslo Harbour just before Christmas, Detective Lena Stigersand's stressful life suddenly becomes even more complicated. Not only is she dealing with a cancer scare, a stalker and an untrustworthy boyfriend, but it seems that both a politician and Norway's security services might be involved in the murder. With her trusted colleagues, Gunnarstranda and Frolich, at her side, Lena digs deep into the case and finds that it not only goes to the heart of the Norwegian establishment, but it might be rather to close to her personal life for comfort. Dark, complex and nail-bitingly tense, The Ice Swimmer is a simply unforgettable instalment in the critically acclaimed Oslo Detective series, by the godfather of Nordic Noir. ____________________ 'If you want your worst fears about what goes on inside a cop's mind confirmed, meet Kjell Ola Dahl's Oslo sleuths, Gunnarstranda and Frolich ... impossible to put down' Guardian 'A chilling novel about betrayal' Sunday Times 'If you have never sampled Dahl, now is the time to try' Daily Mail 'More than gripping' European Literature Network 'The perfect example of why Nordic Noir has become such a popular genre' Reader's Digest 'Dramatic, fast-paced and character-focused' Crime Review 'Skilful blend of police procedural and psychological insight' Crime Fiction Lover 'I have read many clever and thrilling crime novels through my life, but often they have nothing to do with real life. If I don't believe in them, they don't impress me. But when Kjell Ola Dahl tells his stories, I believe every single word' Karin Fossum 'Kjell Ola Dahl's novels are superb. If you haven't read one, you need to - right now' William Ryan
