Cold Hearts, Paperback / softback Book

Cold Hearts Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'The Norwegian Chandler' Jo Nesbo'One of my very favourite Scandinavian authors' Ian RankinMORE THAN FIVE MILLION BOOKS SOLD WORLDWIDEA dramatic, poetic and page-turning thriller from Norway's most dazzling crime writer. On a frosty January day in Bergen, Private Detective Varg Veum is visited by a prostitute.

Her friend Margrethe has disappeared and hasn't been seen for days.

Before her disappearance, something had unsettled her: she'd turned away a customer and returned to the neighbourhood in terror.

Shortly after taking the case, Veum is confronted with a brutal, uneasy reality.

He soon finds the first body - and it won't be the last either.

His investigation leads him into a dark subculture where corrupted idealism has had deadly consequences. Dark secrets lurk everywhere, as the murky pattern of wounded people, worm-eaten lives, and hearts long grown cold proves deadly . . . for someone. Translated from the Norwegian by Don Bartlett
