Description

The second in an “excellent series blowing out of Scandinavia” (The Globe and Mail) featuring brilliant and enigmatic Detective Hanne Wilhelmsen on the hunt for a serial killer who targets immigrants.

It is only the beginning of May but to Norwegians, the unseasonable heat already feels tropical when criminal investigating officer Hanne Wilhelmsen is sent to a macabre crime scene on the outskirts of Oslo: an abandoned shed that is covered in blood. On one wall is an eight-digit number written in blood. There is no sign of a victim—is it just a kid’s prank, or foul play? Is it even human blood? Hanne has a bad feeling about the numbers, but without further evidence, she can do nothing.

     As more bloody numbers are found throughout Oslo, Hanne’s colleague Håkon Sand discovers that the eight-digit number corresponds to the filing number of foreign immigrants waiting to be granted Norwegian citizenship—all female, all missing. When a dead body is finally unearthed, Hanne and Håkon fear they have a serial killer on their hands. Meanwhile, an unsolved rape case appears to be connected to the murders and Hanne and Håkon must race to find the killer, before he is hunted down by one of his own victims.
