The wolves are no longer in the dark ... they are at his door. And they want vengeance...

The next instalment in the international, bestselling Varg Veum series by one of the fathers of Nordic Noir ...


‘Gunnar Staalesen is one of my very favourite Scandinavian authors. Operating out of Bergen in Norway, his private eye, Varg Veum, is a complex but engaging anti-hero. Varg means “wolf” in Norwegian, and this is a series with very sharp teeth’ Ian Rankin

‘The Norwegian Chandler’ Jo NesbÝ

One dark January night a car drives at high speed towards PI Varg Veum, and comes very close to killing him. Veum is certain this is no accident, following so soon after the deaths of two jailed men who were convicted for their participation in a case of child pornography and sexual assault ... crimes that Veum himself once stood wrongly accused of committing.

While the guilty men were apparently killed accidentally, Varg suspects that there is something more sinister at play ... and that he’s on the death list of someone still at large.

Fearing for his life, Veum begins to investigate the old case, interviewing the victims of abuse and delving deeper into the brutal crimes, with shocking results. The wolves are no longer in the dark ... they are at his door. And they want vengeance.

‘Not many books hook you in the first chapter – this one did, and never let go!’ Mari Hannah

‘Almost forty years into the Varg Veum odyssey, Staalesen is at the height of his storytelling powers’ Crime Fiction Lover

‘Staalesen continually reminds us he is one of the finest of Nordic novelists’ Financial Times

‘Chilling and perilous results — all told in a pleasingly dry style’ The Sunday Times

‘Staalesen does a masterful job of exposing the worst of Norwegian society in this highly disturbing entry’ Publishers Weekly

Review:
"This is a series with very sharp teeth." --Ian Rankin

"A Norwegian Chandler." --Jo NesbÝ

"Chilling and perilous results--all told in a pleasingly dry style." --Sunday Times

"Staalesen continually reminds us he is one of the finest of Nordic novelists." --Financial Times

"Not many books hook you in the first chapter--this one did, and never let go!" --Mari Hannah, author, The Insider

"Almost forty years into the Varg Veum odyssey, Staalesen is at the height of his storytelling powers." --Crime Fiction Lover
