The lawyer Mikael Brenne saves a man from a fire. He sets out to prove that the young, mentally ill girl who deliberately started the fire has also been wrongly accused of murdering her grandfather. His investigation leads him back to the killing of a traitor by the Norwegian Resistance in 1944. But no one will talk about what happened. The pieces fall into place, but not in a court of law—in a scene of violence, blood and sudden death at an ice-cold, abandoned sanatorium in the mountains.
'Once again Chris Tvedt is right on target. This is a intriguingly good story.'
'Rottejegeren is a successful thriller by any standard. Chris Tvedt’s strong suit, the sly fabrication of a criminal mystery, is more evident than ever.'
'The past several years, Chris Tvedt has been one of the rising stars among Norwegian crime fiction writers. With this year’s book, he can no longer be counted among them: this book firmly establishes him as a role model that few can measure up to. The Rat Hunter is one of the most accomplished thrillers written by a Norwegian to date.'
