Overview Den Navnløse Arven

Nerve-wrecking psycological thriller
Warning: A DNA-test can potentially change your life

A June evening in year 2000 a group of youths gather by a tarn outside the city to celebrate the end of middle school and beginning of high school. The energy is high, but when dawn breaks the joy shatters. A girl has been raped, and her revenge ends in a merciless tragedy for everyone involved. It's an incident that causes deep marks.

Sixteen years later a doctor at a fertility clinic is brutally murdered. Police detective Lars Lukassen is assigned the case. The police quickly understands that it will be a challenging case to solve, and they soon are deep into an investigation involving Norway's sperm donor system and human lives, and also Lukassens's own history.

This is a crime novel in the spirit of Lisa Marklund’s The Polar Circle. The search for identity and the consequences of a public sperm donor system that is unravelling create the framework for the second novel about Lars Lukassen, written by one of our most promising crime authors.
