Sister #OsloDetectives Kjell Ola Dahl 4*#Review #Translator Don Bartlett @ko_dahl @OrendaBooks #RandomThingsTours @annecater #CrimeFiction #NordicNoir #BookReview #BlogTour #Crime #Sister

Suspended from duty, Detective Frølich is working as a private investigator, when his girlfriend’s colleague asks for his help with a female asylum seeker, who the authorities are about to deport. She claims to have a sister in Norway, and fears that returning to her home country will mean instant death.

Frølich quickly discovers the whereabouts of the young woman’s sister, but things become increasingly complex when she denies having a sibling, and Frølich is threatened off the case by the police. As the body count rises, it becomes clear that the answers lie in an old investigation, and the mysterious sister, who is now on the run…

A dark, chilling and up-to-the-minute Nordic Noir thriller, Sister is also a tense and well-plotted murder mystery with a moving tragedy at its heart

I received a copy of this book from Orenda Books in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

‘Sister’ is atmospheric, complex and well-paced Nordic noir. Frølich, currently suspended from his detective role in Oslo, is making a living as a PI. Wondering where his next case will come from, a friend of a friend asks him to look for an asylum seeker’s sister. The search leads to connections with a cold case, a mystery woman who denies having a sister, and an increasing body count. The plot is multi-layered, with many twists and misinformation. The suspense builds with each connection and event. Frølich finds his skills much in demand, even though he’s warned against pursuing his investigation by the police.

Sister is addictive nordic noir, with a realistic investigation and insightful psychological suspense.
