Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Gunnarstranda and Frølich rely on old-fashioned interview techniques, dogged comparisons of stories and time lines, to unravel the lies in a whodunit full of psychological insights.” -Publishers Weekly

Award-winning author K.O. Dahl has achieved international acclaim with his Oslo Detectives series featuring inspectors Frølich and Gunnarstranda. Now he returns with the third book in the series, combining rare psychological insight and elegant prose rich with dark humor.

Katrine Bratterud, a recovering drug addict, is almost finished with her time in rehab. One evening, contemplating her success at the shore of a lake, she senses that she is not alone. To her shock, a naked man approaches from the woods.  The discovery of Katrine's corpse the following day brings Inspectors Frølich and Gunnarstranda onto the case and into a web of secrets and lies that stretches back generations. Katrines dark past makes her easy prey to a series of men, who immediately become suspects—and victims of the killers rage.

Like Henning Mankell, Dahl gracefully merges the suspense of the classical whodunit with the detailed precision of the police procedural novel.

International Praise for K.O. Dahl and the Oslo Detectives Series:

"The new king of detective stories. He combines high suspense with humour. He is the next Henning Mankell.” --Max (Germany)

"[I]n a league of his own." --Aftenposten (Norway)

"Dahl is the shining star of the genre.” --Hamar Arbeiderblad (Norway)

“Recommend to fans of Karin Fossum and Kjell Eriksson. Dahl is a formidable talent.” --Booklist

About the Author
