In a remote corner of Norway – a mountain town so far north the sun never sets – a man is running for his life in the thrilling sequel to number-one bestseller Jo Nesbo's Blood on Snow


Jon is on the run. He has betrayed Oslo’s biggest crime lord: the Fisherman.

Fleeing to an isolated corner of Norway, to a mountain town so far north that the sun never sets, Jon hopes to find sanctuary among a local religious sect.

Hiding out in a shepherd’s cabin in the wilderness, all that stands between him and his fate are Lea, a bereaved mother and her young son, Knut.

But while Lea provides him with a rifle and Knut brings essential supplies, the midnight sun is slowly driving Jon to insanity.

And then he discovers that the Fisherman’s men are getting closer...

The master of Nordic noir... Blood On Snow and its follow-up Midnight Sun which are touching tales about a hitman and a fixer trying to escape the past.

Charlotte Heathcote, Daily Express

A wonderful take on the short crime novels of years past, these two are prime examples of how to tell a gripping story in compact form. Among other surprises is the language that’s almost lyrical. Every word counts.
