A rock musician with a previous conviction for violence but now experiencing success as a writer, is accused of the murder of his literary mentor.
For old times' sake, defence attorney Mikael Brenne has taken on a case he thinks he can win, but he forgets his possibly most important guiding rule: never ask a question if you don't know the answer.
The consequence is not just the loss of a case, but the loss of a life.
'Death Metal, a sex murder and a curious lawyer makes a welcome addition to the Norwegian Crime Literature.'
'Thorough and professional.'
'Another hit from Chris Tvedt! The plot is well developed, with threads which are braided well together and take surprising twists. (…) an entertaining and exciting Norwegian crime novel.'
'Well-crafted, confident language, a fine gallery of characters and quality throughout. A new candidate for the Riverton Prize?'
