From Norway's bestselling female crime writer, the fifth book in the Edgar-nominated mystery series featuring the whip-smart detective Hanne Wilhelmsen.

Chief Public Prosecutor Sigurd Halvorsrud's wife is found brutally decapitated in front of the fireplace in the family living room. Her husband, who claims he witnessed the grisly murder and is himself covered in blood, immediately falls under suspicion, though he insists his wife's killer was Ståle Salvesen, a businessman he'd prosecuted years before for insider dealing. Detective Inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen is called in to lead the investigation with her old colleague, Billy T. Despite the circumstantial evidence, Hanne is unconvinced of Sigurd Halvorsrud's guilt--that is, until a witness says he saw Ståle Salvesen commit suicide by jumping off a bridge days before the murder took place. Then a journalist at one of Oslo's largest newspapers is found beheaded. What links these two horrific crimes? The demands of the investigation soon clash with a terrible crisis in Hanne's personal life: Cecilie, the woman she has lived with for almost twenty years, has fallen seriously ill and doesn't have much time to live. With a savage killer on the loose, Hanne must ask herself: Is the truth worth chasing at all costs?

An enjoyable, involving, intelligent whodunnit. I enjoy the fact that Anne Holt's characters evolve in each novel and that she writes so well. Her next novel was just as good. This is wonderful if you really need to immerse yourself in another world for a while.
