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 follow-up to number one bestseller Jo Nesbo's Blood on Snow

The new book from the number one bestselling author of The Son and The Snowman, Jo Nesbo

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 amongst 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…

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.
