Three Dog Night Synopsis

It's the coldest winter in memory as ex-convict Peter Boutrup moves to remote, rural Denmark to start a new life. But when a young woman goes missing on New Year's Eve and Peter discovers the body of Ramses, an old acquaintance from prison, things start to unravel. Two days after the disappearance the body of a young girl is found in the harbour - she is naked, attached to an anchor and her face has been torn off. Is this the body of the missing woman and is it connected with Ramses' murder? And could Peter's strange new neighbour, Felix, be involved? Peter Boutrup just wants peace and quiet but he must accept that the truth lies hidden in the past he is trying to forget.

Three Dog Night Press Reviews

'Very promising' - Daily Mail

 

'A rich mix of damaged but endearing characters ... the narrative has multiple layers without becoming overcomplicated... at times brutal but the gruesomeness is balanced with evocative descriptions' -  Big Issue

 

'A highly recommended, bleak and captivating crime novel Information Egholm is a better storyteller than most other female crime writers ... It's thrilling and brutal' Ekstra Bladet

 

'Both plot and characters go full throttle ... How it all connects is both surprising and imaginative' Politiken

 

'The story is captivating and well told. The book has some cleverly turned twists in a focused narrative where the expected truths emerge during the dramatical final stand-off' metroXpress
