A chilling, stimulating, intensely dark tale set in Norway. A young woman is found dead in woodland on the edge of Oslo Fjord, with her body arranged in a strange, unsettling backdrop. The policing team in charge of the investigation are lost, until help comes from an unlikely source. This is the second in the ‘Munch and Kruger’ series which started with I’m Travelling Alone’. Munch and Kruger are a fascinating pairing, work Kruger’s reason for living, while Munch should really take time out. In short sharp chapters, characters were slowly introduced, ruffling my senses, keeping me in suspense, there were times when I wanted to shout a warning, to hold out a restraining arm. Samuel Bjork creates a jagged zig-zagging edge of understanding, there isn't a convenient jigsaw shaped hole waiting for your thoughts. ‘The Owl Always Hunts at Night’ is a cunning, dramatically sinister tale, it looks as though this is a series with staying power. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Owl Always Hunts at Night by Samuel Bjork

When a young woman is found dead, the police are quick to respond. But what they find at the scene is unexpected. The body is posed, the scene laboriously set. And there is almost no forensic evidence to be found. Detective Mia Kruger has been signed off work pending psychological assessment. But her boss has less regard for the rules than he should. Desperate to get Mia back in the office, Holger Munch offers her an unofficial deal. But the usually brilliant Mia is struggling and the team are unable to close the case. Until a young hacker uncovers something that forces the team to confront the scope of the murderer's plans and face the possibility that he may already be on the hunt for a second victim.

Reviews

'FANTASTIC sequel from Samuel Bjork! ... This is quality suspense at its very best and in my opinion a literary masterpiece. A delight to read!' Bokelskere.no

'This book is damnably perfect ... A real ace of a crime novel full of suspense, horror, loss, deprivation and eternal love. Each and every page is worth reading.' 5/5 Mitt Fyn (Sweden)

'With a dramatic finale that really took my breath away Samuel Bjork has placed himself up there with the best of Norwegian crime writers.' I hyllan (Sweden)

'Samuel Bjork is Norway's new Jo Nesbo.' Boktok 73 (Sweden)

'Raw, psychological, disturbing. The Owl Always Hunts at Night, the new thriller by Samuel Bjork, is one of those reads you just can't stop thinking about ... a great thriller, a novel that leaves you with a sense of confusion and anxiety, a discomfort because of what humanity is capable of.' Il Giallista (Italy)
