1222 by Anne Holt

1222

Anne Holt

Yet another excellent Nordic crime novel: 1222 triumphantly updates 'the locked train' mystery for the terrorist age. Expect a read full of old-fashioned suspense of the best kind and a ballsy heroine in the shape of retired police inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen.

Extract

We were all thinking the same thing: the fact that another member of the church commissioners had disappeared in the night under slightly mysterious circumstances, almost exactly twenty-four hours after his colleague had been shot dead, was suspicious to say the least.
