Fresh from rehab, PI Varg Veum faces his most complex

investigation yet, when a man is found drowned, a young woman

disappears, and the case of a missing child is revived. The classic

Nordic Noir series continues…

PI Varg Veum has returned to duty following a stint in rehab, but

his new composure and resolution are soon threatened when three

complex crimes land on his desk.

A man is found dead in an elite swimming pool. A young woman

has gone missing. Most chillingly, Veum is asked to investigate

the ‘Camilla Case’: an eight-year-old cold case involving the

disappearance of a little girl, who was never found.

As the threads of these three apparently unrelated cases

come together, against the backdrop of a series of shocking

environmental crimes, Veum faces the most challenging, traumatic

investigation of his career.

A stunning, sophisticated, tension-packed thriller – the darkest of hardboiled Nordic Noir – from one of Norway’s most acclaimed crime writers

One of the fathers of Nordic Noir, Gunnar Staalesen was born in Bergen, Norway, 
in 1947.

He made his debut at the age of twenty-two with Seasons of Innocence 

and in 1977 he published the first book in the Varg Veum series. 

He is the authorof over twenty titles, which have been published in twenty-four countries and soldover four million copies. 

Twelve film adaptations of his Varg Veum crime novels have appeared since 2007, starring the popular Norwegian actor Trond Espen Seim. 

Staalesen has won three Golden Pistols (including the Prize of Honour); Where Roses Never Die won the 2017 Petrona Award for Nordic Crime Fiction, and Big Sister was shortlisted in 2019. 

He lives with his wife in Bergen.
