Today it is my absolute pleasure to be able to bring you the exclusive cover reveal for the brand new thriller from Thomas Enger and Jørn Lier Horst, Death Deserved.
Now, you may have missed it, because I do hide it very well, but I’m quite a fan of literature in translation and particularly of the emotionally charged and stunning Hennig Juul series by Mr Enger, and his fabulous standalone novel, Inborn, which was released earlier this year. When I heard that the lovely Karen Sullivan had bought this first collaborative novel by Mr Enger and Jørn Lier Horst, I could not wait to get my preorder in as it sounds brilliant. The start of a new series, here’s the all important bookish bits:
About the Book
Police officer Alexander Blix and celebrity blogger Emma Ramm join forces to track down a serial killer with a thirst for attention and high-profile murders, in the first episode of a gripping new Nordic Noir series…Available from: Amazon | Waterstones
Oslo, 2018. Former long-distance runner Sonja Nordstrøm never shows at the launch of her controversial autobiography, Always Number One. When celebrity blogger Emma Ramm visits Nordstrøm’s home later that day, she finds the door unlocked and signs of a struggle inside. A bib with the number ‘one’ has been pinned to the TV.
Police officer Alexander Blix is appointed to head up the missing-persons investigation, but he still bears the emotional scars of a hostage situation nineteen years earlier, when he killed the father of a five-year-old girl. Traces of Nordstrøm soon show up at different locations, but the appearance of the clues appear to be carefully calculated … evidence of a bigger picture that he’s just not seeing…
Blix and Ramm soon join forces, determined to find and stop a merciless killer with a flare for the dramatic, and thirst for attention.
Trouble is, he’s just got his first taste of it…
