A sophisticated and elegantly entertaining shard-sharp slice of Nordic noir that will be surely be devoured by aficionados of Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell.

Vilhelm Thygesen is a prominent left-wing lawyer and former cop, with a ponytail that “makes him look like an old hippie”, and a world-weary persona. When a frozen body is discovered in the garden of his large property, Vilhelm is naturally implicated, not least because he has a somewhat fraught relationship with the police. While the identity of the woman is being tracked down, a biker once represented by Vilhelm is killed in an accident, and which leads investigators to explore possible connections between the frozen woman and a notorious biker gang. This is a perfectly-paced police procedural, with plenty of cleverly connected sub-plots and shifting points of view that keep the pages turning. ~ Joanne Owen

Synopsis

The Frozen Woman by Jon Michelet

A frozen body. A murdered biker. A radical lawyer with a murky past.

In the depths of the Norwegian winter, the corpse of a woman is discovered in the garden of a notorious left-wing lawyer, Vilhelm Thygesen. She has been stabbed to death.

A young biker, a member of a gang once represented by Thygesen, dies in suspicious circumstances.

As Thygesen receives anonymous threats, investigating detectives Stribolt and Vaage uncover a web of crime and violence extending far beyond Norway’s borders.

Does the frozen woman hold the key?
