Pathologist Silje Andersen has left behind a difficult past and moved to Trondheim. During the autopsy of a young boy, she discovers a fateful connection.
Judge Ingeborg Witsøe Berg is still grieving the loss of her daughter Maja, killed in an accident. But as she prepares for an important trial, Ingeborg finds a bird, a great tit, inside her house. This prompts two questions: how can her daughter’s favourite bird have found its way into a closed room? And what really happened the day Maja drowned in Nid River?
All the Little Birds is a thriller with a terrifying premise. Two women are united in their quest to seek out the truth and the people who are hiding in the shadows. Because nothing is as it should be in Trondheim.
The writer succeeds with creating believable characters and keeps the thrill up to the very last page. We are very much looking forward to reading new crime novels from this author. *****
Gellein's debut is bloody and promising.
