An intricate psychological thriller from the master of Norwegian crimewriting— the latest in the Oslo Detective’s series
 
A recovering drug addict, Katrine Bratterud, is almost finished with her time in rehab. One evening, contemplating her success at the shore of a lake, she senses that she is not alone.

The discovery of Katrine’s corpse the following day brings detectives Frølich and Gunnarstranda onto the case and into a web of secrets and lies that stretches back generations.

K.O. Dahl weaves an intricate plot, juxtaposing the selfdelusion of drug addicts with the more complex self-delusions of the well-respected middle-class people treating them. Like Henning Mankell, Dahl manages to merge the suspense of the classical whodunit with the detailed precision of the police procedural novel.

Praise for The Last Fix

Praise for the writing of K.O. Dahl:
 
"The new king of detective stories. He combines high suspense with humour. He is the next Henning Mankell.” --Max (Germany)

"[I]n a league of his own." --Aftenposten (Norway)

"Dahl is the shining star of the genre.” --Hamar Arbeiderblad (Norway)

“Recommend to fans of Karin Fossum and Kjell Eriksson. Dahl is a formidable talent.” --Booklist
 
"The plot of the book is quite complex, but completely engaging.... Each of the possible suspects seems to be hiding something, and virtually no one tells the truth. It's a difficult job for the police in that there are very few leads. Dahl excels at upping the psychological suspense; it is almost impossible to determine who the murderer is." --reviewingtheevidence.com on The Last Fix
