Today it is my great pleasure to be joining the blog tour for the latest novel from Kjell Ola Dahl, The Ice Swimmer. I loved the previous book in the series, Faithless, and so when the chance came around to read this latest offering I didn’t hesitate. My thanks to publisher Orenda Books for the advance copy for review and to Anne Cater for inviting me to join the tour. I am loving my Nordic-Noir and this was yet another brilliant offering. Let’s see what it’s all about.
About the Book
When a dead man is lifted from the freezing waters of Oslo Harbour just before Christmas, Detective Lena Stigersand’s stressful life suddenly becomes even more complicated. Not only is she dealing with a cancer scare, a stalker and an untrustworthy boyfriend, but it seems both a politician and Norway’s security services might be involved in the murder.
With her trusted colleagues, Gunnarstranda and Frølich, at her side, Lena digs deep into the case and finds that it not only goes to the heart of the Norwegian establishment, but it might be rather to close to her personal life for comfort.
Dark, complex and nail-bitingly tense, The Ice Swimmer is the latest and most unforgettable instalment in the critically acclaimed Oslo Detective series, by the godfather of Nordic Noir.
