Overview En dag skal du dø

You're Going to Die is the first book in a new crime series about the detective duo Ulf Sommer and Agnete Ness.

Winter 2019: The first weekend of December, Camilla Lund goes on a girl’s trip to Sweden. At least, that’s what she tells her husband. She never comes back home to Setesdal. Her husband’s suspicion that his wife is a completely different person than he believed grows stronger. Camilla didn’t have any old friends, no living parents – seemingly, she had no past at all.

In Oslo the leader of Kripos (NCIS), Agnete Ness, is ordered by the Attorney General to start a secret investigation of Camilla Lund’s disappearance. The Attorney General wants Agnete’s best detective, Ulf Sommer, on the case. With strict orders to not reveal its contents to anyone except Ulf, Agnete is given a folder of secret documents. In the folder is a photograph of a young girl. Twenty years ago, everyone in Norway knew her face. Three neo-Nazis, including a fifteen-year-old girl, were sentenced for the murder of two immigrant boys in Oslo. It was the most shocking murder case the country had ever experienced. To Agnete Ness, it’s personal. The black abyss that she thought was in the past, is suddenly her reality again.

Camilla Lund’s disappearance is the start of Agnete’s biggest nightmare. To Ulf Sommer, it’s a ticking clock: He is the only one who can save Agnete from her own past.
