DI Elli Rathke is on vacation and, at last, has time and opportunity to investigate the murder of her sister, which took place 15 years earlier. The murderer was never caught. At the same time, the Oslo police and especially Elli's partner Jan Nereng have to deal with several drug-related killings. As Elli digs deeper into the case of her sister's murder, ever more insidious similarities to Nereng's findings turn up. Fast-moving crime fiction at its best, with the toughest lady in Oslo in the lead!
This is the third book in the Elli-series.
‘Eystein Hanssen is getting better at writing crime fiction all the time. Judging by his work so far, his greatest strength is his skill in devising complex plot lines, rich in detail. He provides clues step by step, in a way that makes the narrative seem both realistic and exciting.’
‘Hanssen does not just create a very competent plot, but is also a dab hand at writing action sequences that are physically affecting and carry an emotional charge.’
‘Eystein Hanssen has quickly established himself as one of Norway’s leading writers of crime fiction. His careful research lends credence and realism to the fast-moving action. The constant tension makes the reader keep turning the pages. Apparently straightforward circumstances can be critically important clues. “Everything is connected,” as Nereng is fond of saying. Hanssen is very good at describing rough action and his episodic storytelling makes his books ask to be filmed.’
‘Strong and thrilling drama … Hanssen has a praiseworthy talent for creating and developing intricate, wide-ranging storylines. They are both credible and exciting – which is also true of Triangle.’
‘Steely control … a believable scenario spiced up with real writerly skill. No let-up in the excitement.’
‘Eystein Hanssen succeeds in creating an intricate pattern of storylines as the narrative leaps between Oslo and Thailand and between past and present, while, despite this, he manages to piece together all the plot elements in such a convincing way that the overall result is a well-structured work of Norwegian crime fiction.’
