All Human Life

Episode 3 of 3

Detective Annika Strandhed always liked Frogner Park, until three men were found dead there. From July 2014.

Annika Strandhed is a leading light in the murder squad of the Oslo police. Her neuroses - and she has a few - are mostly hidden by a boisterous manner and a love of speedboats. As fictional Scandinavian detectives go, she's not as astute as Sarah Lund or Saga Norén, perhaps, but probably better company.

In this second series of stories by Nick Walker - commissioned specially for Radio 4 - Annika is learning to juggle the demands of policing the Oslofjord with a new challenge. Namely, single motherhood.

Episode 3 (of 3): All Human Life
Frogner Park had always been a place of happy associations for Annika - until three men were found dead at the base of its famous monolith.
