Overview Døde menn går på ski

- One of you will kill me.

These words are uttered by Sverre Hartkorn; billionaire, playboy and with an unhealthy attraction to murder. For his Easter vacation he brings a psycho analyst and seven of his closest friends to the remote Blåkamp cabin to play The Murder Game. The one who solves the murder mystery before 9PM on Easter Sunday will win five million kroners.

It is said that the ghost of the murderer Ulvar Mørkli is haunting the cabin, and after just one day the idyllic mood is broken. One of the participants is found decapitated in the snow. Apart for the victims own footprints , there are no other anywhere close. Worst of all: this is not a game, it is bloody serious. The people in the cabin have to fight a desperate battle against time and a murderer that does not seem to be quitting anytime soon.

Why did Sverre Hartkorn get so upset when he drew the "Move forward to Slemdal"-card during the Monopoly-game? Is police officer Slogum really a police officer, and why is his dialect so strange? How far will the Hartkorn group keep it going on gin and tonic, rohypnol and easter quizzing? How many people will have to die before the murderer is revealed?And can dead men really ski?

Knt Nærums first criminal novel is a classic murder mystery. Without hiding his glee, the writer is bringing about a number of impossible crime, lousy dream interpretaton and peculiar messages from the dead.

"Da gjenstår det bare å heve konjakkglasset mot Knut Nærum og si: En velturnert og vellykket roman. Vellykket som pastisj. Vellykket som parodi, med det nærumske fingeravtrykk intakt."Knut Hol, Fædrelandsvennen
Kjapp og leken parodi på Bernard Borges kriminalromaner, gjennomført med stor litteraturmusikalsk presisjon."Per Haddal, Aftenposten
