Product Description

It is only the beginning of May but to Norwegians, the unseasonable heat already feels tropical when criminal investigating officer (and lesbian) Hanne Wilhelmsen is sent to a macabre crime scene on the outskirts of Oslo: an abandoned shed that is covered in blood. On one wall is an eight-digit number written in blood. There is no sign of a victim - is it just a kid's prank, or foul play? Is it even human blood? Hanne has a bad feeling about the numbers, but without further evidence, she can do nothing.

As more bloody numbers are found throughout Oslo, Hanne's colleague Hakon Sand discovers that the eight-digit number corresponds to the filing number of foreign immigrants waiting to be granted Norwegian citizenship - all female, all missing. When a dead body is finally unearthed, Hanne and Hakon fear they have a serial killer on their hands. Meanwhile, an unsolved rape case appears to be connected to the murders, and Hanne and Hakon must race to find the killer as he is hunted down by one of his victim's fathers.

This is another book in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series, following on from the huge international bestsellers 1222 (the most recent book) and Blind Goddess (the first in the series). Lesbian Norwegian crime writer Anne Holt has worked as a journalist and news anchor, and spent two years working for the Oslo Police Department before founding her own law firm and serving as Norway's Minister for Justice in 1996-97.
