Overview

Oslo detectives Gunnarstranda and Frølich are back . . . and this time, it's personal

When the body of a woman turns up in a dumpster, scalded and wrapped in plastic, Inspector Frank Frølich is shocked to discover that he knows her—and their recent meetings may hold the clue to her murder. As he begins to look deeper into the tragic events surrounding her death, Frølich's colleague Gunnarstranda finds another body, and things take a more sinister turn. With a cold case involving the murder of a young girl in northern Norway casting a shadow, and an unsettling number of coincidences clouding the plot, Frølich is forced to look into his own past to find the answers—and the killer—before he strikes again. Dark, brooding and utterly chilling, atmospheric page-turner marks the return of an internationally renowned and award-winning series, from one of the fathers of Nordic Noir.

Reviews

"Recommend to fans of Karin Fossum and Kjell Eriksson. Dahl is a formidable talent whose books may well become as popular in the US as in Norway." ?Booklist on The Fourth Man

"A Norwegian Mankell." ?Norra Vasterbotten (Sweden)

"superb"—Publishers Weekly Starred Review 

"What comes shining through in this book, and very nicely so, is the old cliché that the world is a very small place, and that it really is impossible to escape one's own history." —Crime Segments

"[T]he characters carry a force of will that makes it a pleasure to follow their investigations . . . I'll be watching for more of Dahl's work." —Kingdom Books, Mysteries - Reviews
