Product description

Review

''Anne Holt is the godmother of modern Norwegian crime fiction.'' --Jo Nesbø, New York Times bestselling author

''Anne Holt is a thriller writer of the highest order. With the claustrophobic and breathless suspense in 1222 she, again, proves her extraordinary abilities.'' --Liza Marklund, New York Times bestselling author

''1222 is a splendidly chilly read this icy December.'' --Guardian (London)

''It's easy to see why Anne Holt, former minister of justice in Norway, and currently its bestselling female crime writer, is rapturously received in the rest of Europe . . . The buildup of tension is slow but superbly effective. Holt's vivid depiction of claustrophobia, petty squabbles, and mob hysteria is just as convincing as her evocation of the storm outside.'' --Guardian (London)

''Holt deftly marshals her perplexing narrative . . . There is a great deal of mileage still left in the well-worn tropes that Holt has channeled. The clichés are resolutely seen off by the sheer energy and vitality of her writing . . . The large cast of potential victims is handled with prodigious skill--as is the uncompromising, short-fused heroine. As for the plot itself, it moves with the speed of the ill-fated train--but, unlike the train, Anne Holt's storytelling never comes off the rails.'' --Independent (London)

''Step aside, Stieg Larsson. Holt is the queen of Scandinavian crime thrillers . . . Captures the Agatha Christie spirit of the good, old-fashioned murder mystery.'' --Red Magazine (UK)

''A fascinating, extremely modern homage to the classic detective novel.'' --Der Spiegel (Germany)

''A pleasure from start to finish . . . A dazzling and classic crime story and a brilliant thriller.'' --Bokavisen (Norway)

''Holt updates the classic locked-room mystery with such bravado that on the last page the reader can only give a deep sigh of contentment.'' --Aamulehti (Finland)

''A masterpiece of the genre, a real nonstop read.'' --Skånska Dagbladet (Sweden)
