Norway's premier crime writer delivers a complex, tragic, and dark tale of revenge and erotic obsession in a modern-day version of the classic noir story. Behind the usual suspects lurks The Fourth Man.
In the course of a routine police raid, Detective Inspector Frank Frolich of the Oslo Police saves the lovely Elizabeth Faremo from getting inadvertently caught in a crossfire. Some weeks later, Frolich coincidentally runs into her again - but their ensuing affair is no accident.
By the time he learns that she is no stranger - but rather the sister of a wanted member of a gang of criminals - it is already too late.
Then in the middle of the night Frolich receives a call. A young guard has been killed in the course of an attempted break-in. Meanwhile, Elizabeth has vanished from Frolich's bed. In a turn of events cryptic, erotic, and complex, he finds himself a prime murder suspect and under the watch of his doubting colleagues.
K.O. Dahl serves up a hard-boiled psychological crime thriller.
