Yours Until Death by Gunnar Staalesen

Yours Until Death

Gunnar Staalesen

As he walks down 'the mean streets' of 1970's Bergen, Varg Veum is a wisecracking, tough yet vulnerable Private Eye who should appeal to all fans of Raymond Chandler. This, together with his eye for disfunctional relationships, is enough to push author Staalesen, and his translator, right to the top of my list of favourite Scandinavian crime writers.
