Product description


Praise for the Hanne Wilhelmsen series

Praise for The Lion's Mouth

"Holt uses her surprising plot to highlight the nature of power and the extent to which it can corrupt."--Publishers Weekly

"A fine addition to a noteworthy series, spotlighting a politically sensitive case in the broader context of Norwegian society. A natural for Jo Nesbø readers."--Booklist (starred review)

"The wonder and pleasure of The Lion's Mouth is in how Ms. Holt - Norway's former minister of justice - weaves the strands of a political thriller, a police-procedural, a locked-room mystery and a domestic novel into a satisfying plot."--The Wall Street Journal

"Within this English translation of Holt's 1997 novel lies a twisty tale of political intrigue...a clever mystery."--Library Journal
