Anne Holt's Fear Not is a thrilling crime novel once again featuring criminal psychologist and profiler Johanne Vik. The author raises questions about religion, human rights, and the very nature of love itself by having the courage to go beyond conventional crime writing and peppers the story with red-hot political issues. For fans of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy this is right up your street.

If you like Anne Holt you might also like to read books by Henning Mankell, Patricia Cornwell and Karin Fossum.

Synopsis

Fear Not by Anne Holt

A drug addict dead in a basement, a young asylum seeker floating in the harbour, a high profile female bishop stabbed to death in the street. What is the connection? During a snowy Christmas season in Norway, criminal psychologist and profiler Inger Johanne Vik finds not only her husband and herself but also her autistic daughter drawn into the investigation of a number of disturbing deaths. Her husband, detective Yngvar StubA , has been dispatched to Bergen to investigate the shocking Christmas Eve murder of a local female bishop. Meanwhile, in Oslo, dead bodies keep turning up, though the causes of death vary. Before long, Inger Johanne will incredulously discover something that will link them all.
