The Ice Swimmer

by Kjell Ola Dahl

Part of the Oslo Detectives Series

The Ice Swimmer Synopsis

When a dead man is lifted from the freezing waters of Oslo Harbour just before Christmas, Detective Lena Stigersand's stressful life suddenly becomes even more complicated. Not only is she dealing with a cancer scare, a stalker and an untrustworthy boyfriend, but it seems both a politician and Norway's security services might be involved in the murder. With her trusted colleagues, Gunnarstranda and Frolich, at her side, Lena digs deep into the case and finds that it not only goes to the heart of the Norwegian establishment, but it might be rather to close to her personal life for comfort. Dark, complex and nail-bitingly tense, The Ice Swimmer is the latest and most unforgettable instalment in the critically acclaimed Oslo Detective series, by the godfather of Nordic Noir. 'If you want your worst fears about what goes on inside a cop's mind confirmed, meet K.O. Dahl's Oslo sleuths, Gunnarstranda and Frolich ... impossible to put down' Guardian 'Utterly convincing' Publishers Weekly 'A masterclass in plotting, atmosphere and character that finely balances shocking twists with the coppers' complicated personal lives' Times Crime Club 'A chilling novel about betrayal' Sunday Times 'If you have never sampled Dahl, now is the time to try' Daily Mail
