By Nick Walker. The Asker Accident, a plane disaster in 1972, seems to have a bearing on a murder inquiry when a body is found near the crash site.
Four new cases land on the desk of Detective Annika Strandhed, queen of the Oslo Police boat patrol.
Annika's 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 Saga Norén or Sarah Lund, but may be better company.
Although Mikel, her long-suffering forensic photographer, might disagree.
