A string of murders sucks the Oslo Detectives into a maelstrom of dark secrets in the latest from the master of Norwegian crime writing.

 

Award-winning author K.O. Dahl has achieved international acclaim with his Oslo Detectives series featuring inspectors Frølich and Gunnarstranda. Now he presents the riveting fourth book in the series, combining rare psychological insight and elegant prose.

 

Lethal Investments opens seven years prior to the case that started it all: The Fourth Man. It’s the early nineties, and Oslo is driven by the rapid success of the IT boom. When Reiden Rosendal, a beautiful young woman, is found brutally murdered in her apartment, Inspectors Gunnarstranda and Frølich’s top suspect is her lover—until he’s discovered dead, too.  A trail of clues points the team towards the software company where Reidun worked—a labyrinth of secrets where employees’ business and the private lives intertwine in a thick web of hurried sexual dalliances, hushed affairs, and downright lies.  When yet another body connected to Reidun surfaces, Gunnarstranda and Frølich must race against time to lay bare the murderer’s dark secrets and stop the senseless killing.

 

Once again, Dahl's dark, lyrical writing and haunting, atmospheric setting bring new life to the modern noir mystery.

Praise for Lethal Investments

Praise for Lethal Investments:

"Series fans will relish the opportunity to see these two unorthodox sleuths work their magic together." --Publishers Weekly

International Praise for K.O. Dahl and the Oslo Detectives Series


"The new king of detective stories. He is the next Henning Mankell.” —Max (Germany)


"In a league of his own." —Aftenposten (Norway)

 

“Dahl is the shining star of the genre.” –Hamar Arbeiderblad (Norway)


“Dahl is a formidable talent.” —Booklist

 

“I have read many clever and thrilling crime novels through my life, but often they have nothing to do with real life. If I don’t believe in them, they don’t impress me. But when K.O. Dahl tells his stories, I believe every single word.” –Karin Fossum, author of Bad Intentions

 “Gunnarstranda and Frølich rely on old-fashioned interview techniques, dogged comparisons of stories and time lines, to unravel the lies in a whodunit full of psychological insights.” –Publishers Weekly on The Last Fix

“An absorbing study of sexual enthrallment, dogged police work and a harrowing twist or two: Fans of procedurals…will snap this one up.” –Kirkus, on The Fourth Man
