Lethal Investments

Oslo Detectives

K. O. Dahl

Minotaur Books

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.
