Product description

Review

Fans of contemporary noir will welcome Staalesen's superior second entry, first published in Norway in 1979, in his series featuring Bergen PI Varg Veum. Staalsen's mastery of pacing enables him to develop his characters in a leisurely way without sacrificing tension and suspense. --Publishers Weekly

Veum is a divorced loner with a penchant for drinking aquavit and a reputation for always solving the crime, no matter the personal cost. . . . A nice change of pace for Swedish crime readers. --Booklist Online

I like Veum...out of his mouth comes some wonderful philosophy and observations about modern relationships, childhood, bereavement, and the destructive force of passion. He treats young Roar with compassion and respect. He also provides some comic relief from the tense novel. I recommend this book. --I Love a Mystery

Product Description

First published in Norwegian in 1979, it was described by the critic Nils Nordberg as 'one of the finest, most serious, most ambitious books in post-war Norwegian crime writing'. The single-mother families of the isolated community under the shadow of the Pyderhorn, Bergen's greatest mountain, are being terrorised by a teenage gang. But teenage violence is nothing compared to what awaits detective Varg Veum when he gets to know the blue-eyed Wenche Andersen.
