    • Abstract:
      Summary: "When bombs explode at the Islamic Cooperation Council's headquarters in Oslo, detective Hanne Wilhelmsen is on the case in the ninth and penultimate installment of the award-winning series from Norway's bestselling crime writer Anne Holt--"the godmother of Norwegian crime fiction" (Jo Nesbo). On an early April afternoon, a bomb goes off in the Islamic Cooperation Council's offices in Oslo, killing twenty-three people. The Police and Security Service suspect an extremist organization to be responsible for the attack, a suspicion that grows stronger when threats of yet another, bigger explosion during the planned celebration of the Norwegian constitution reach the authorities. As a special adviser on cold cases, Hanne Wilhelmsen has cut all of her official ties to the Security Service and lives contentedly--or at least as contentedly as someone like her can manage--in solitude with her partner Nesir and their young daughter. A small computer monitor is Hanne's only window to the outside until the day of the attacks, when her closed-off world is broken open. Hanne is approached by her long lost friend, Billy T., whose son Linus has undergone some disturbing changes recently. As the mood of the city darkens, Hanne tries to help Billy T. reach out to Linus and realizes that Oslo is up against forces far more terrible and menacing than ever before"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2017 April #2

This is the ninth and penultimate installment of the Hanne Wilhelmsen series. Many fans may have feared that Hanne was dead at the end of Beyond the Truth (2016), but she did survive the shooting and is confined to a wheelchair. Note that the series was not translated in chronological order, so those who had read 1222 (2011) were already aware of this fact. Eleven years have gone by, and the indomitable Hanne has no sooner agreed to serve as a special adviser on cold cases for the police when there is a major attack on the Islamic Cooperation Council's headquarters in Oslo. The mystery unfolds within a realistic portrayal of Europe's burgeoning immigrant population and the violent extremism—on both sides—this phenomenon has engendered. One key recurring character is sacrificed in this book, but a fascinating new character in the person of Hanne's new assistant, Henrik Holme, is added. Readers will want to read more about him. Jo Nesbø calls Anne Holt "the godmother of Norwegian crime fiction." She has been writing three series concurrently since 1993. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2017 April #1

Early in Edgar-finalist Holt's outstanding ninth Hanne Wilhelmsen novel (after 2016's Beyond the Truth), Billy T., Hanne's old friend and police partner, visits Hanne, who was shot in the spine in the line of duty and is now gingerly returning to police work, at her Oslo apartment. As Billy T. is telling Hanne about his troubled and alienated son, Linus, they hear a nearby explosion. A bomb has shattered the office of the National Council for Islam in Norway, a moderate Islamic group, killing 23 people. In the wake of this tragedy, there is an outbreak of flaming anti-Islamic rhetoric from Norway's right-wing Progress Party and hate-filled radical Islamic videos claiming responsibility for the bombing. Billy T. laboriously traces Linus's apparent flirtation with radical Islam, while Hanne and an oddball detective, Henrik Holme, probe a cold homicide case with ties to young Pakistani immigrants. On the personal side, Hanne faces potential conflict with her partner, Nefis, a Turkish Muslim who's now nominally an atheist but whose faith is still intact "deep inside." Holt sheds a vital humane light on one of today's most lethal social problems. (June)
