Overview Triangel

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.’
DAGBLADET

‘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.’
AFTENPOSTEN

‘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.’
OPPLAND ARBEIDERBLAD

‘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.’
HAUGESUNDS AVIS

‘Steely control … a believable scenario spiced up with real writerly skill. No let-up in the excitement.’
TRØNDER-AVISA

‘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.’

Reviews from Triangel
"Hanssen skriver ikke bare høyst kompetente plott, han har dessuten en heldig hånd med actionscenene, som både er fysisk følbare fra topp til tå og har emosjonelt sting i seg. "Pål Gerhard Olsen, Aftenposten

Tett og spennende

"Eystein Hanssen blir en stadig bedre krimforfatter. Hans foreløpig største styrke (...) er evnen til å utvikle et omfattende og intrikat plot, og deretter porsjonere ut detaljene på en slik måte at historien oppleves som både troverdig og spennende."Torbjørn Ekelund, Dagbladet

Ber om å bli filmatisert

Eystein Hanssen har på kort tid klart å etablere seg blant Norges beste krimforfattere. Han gjør mye research, som gjør at det han skriver føles ekte. Handlingen er uten dødpunkter og vi drives hele tiden fremover i spenning. Tilsynelatende vanlige banale ting har en overraskende sammenheng. «Alt henger sammen med alt» som Nereng sier. Hanssen er spesielt god på heftig action og bøkene hans simpelthen ber om å bli filmatisert.Elise Weseth, Oppland Arbeiderblad

Sterk og spennende dramaturgi

Hanssen fortjener ros for sine evner til å skape og utvikle intrikate og omfattende plott. De er både troverdige og spennende - også i «Triangel»Kjell Einar Øren, Haugesunds Avis

Stålkontroll

(...) et troverdig scenario krydret av en leseverdig penn og drivende spenning."Per- Magne Midjo, Trønder-Avisa
"Eystein Hanssen evner å spinne en intrikat vev, han hopper mellom Oslo og Thailand, han hopper mellom nåtid og fortid, men klarer likevel å pusle brikkene på plass på en såpass overbevisende måte at resultatet blir norsk krim av akseptabelt format."
