About the Author

One of the fathers of the Nordic Noir genre, Gunnar Staalesen made his debut at the age of 22 with Seasons of Innocence and in 1977 he published the first book in the Varg Veum series. His books have been published in 26 countries and sold over five million copies. Twelve film adaptations of his Varg Veum crime novels have appeared since 2007, with a further series currently being filmed. Staalesen has won three Golden Pistols (including the Prize of Honour) and the Petrona Award, and been shortlisted for the CWA Dagger.


"This is a series with very sharp teeth." --Ian Rankin
"A Norwegian Chandler." --Jo Nesbø
"Terrific. . . .Like Raymond Chandler, Staalesen creates intense emotion through dialogue and description, but his altogether Norwegian focus forces home a substantial social message: ignoring the past is inevitably tragic." --Publishers Weekly starred review of Big Sister
"Chilling and perilous results--all told in a pleasingly dry style." --Sunday Times
"Staalesen continually reminds us he is one of the finest of Nordic novelists." --Financial Times
"Not many books hook you in the first chapter--this one did, and never let go!" --Mari Hannah, author, The Insider
"Almost forty years into the Varg Veum odyssey, Staalesen is at the height of his storytelling powers." --Crime Fiction Lover

"Raymond Chandler fans won't want to miss this one." -- Publishers Weekly
"A strong dose of noir." -- Booklist
"an excellent noir thriller." -- Foreword Reviews
