Burned

by Thomas Enger

Recovering from the death of his son and his own severe injury in a fire, online newspaper crime reporter Henning Juul becomes involved in the investigation of a very brutal murder. This leads him into the dark side of Oslo's underworld. There is plenty of action in this complicated thriller and also some good psychological insight into injury and bereavement. An exciting debut novel and the first in a series featuring Henning Juul.

Extract

Her blonde curls are soaked in blood.
The ground has opened up and tried to swallow her. Only her head and torso are visible. Her rigid body is propped up by the damp earth; she looks like a single, long-stemmed rose. Blood has trickled down her back in thin, elongated lines, like tears on a melancholic cheek. Her naked body resembles an abstract painting.
Translated by Charlotte Barslund
