This is the third of Anne Holt's novels to be
published in English.Once more it features the Oslo
detective Adam Stubo and his wife,an FBI trained profiler,
Johanne Vik.
In 2005 .Helen Lardahl Bentley becomes the first woman
president of the USA,four months after her inauguration,on
an official trip to Oslo,she is kidnapped.The Norwegian police
and the FBI uneasily join forces to investigate and try to find her.
The President has a secret in her past,is it this or something else,
that is behind the disappearance?
Perhaps not Anne Holt's best ,but nevertheless this is a well-crafted
enjoyable thriller that relies as much on characterisation as on plot.

"Everyone has a secret life. Even the most powerful woman in the world..."
"She thought she could get away with it. She was wrong..."
Here we have another in the current and considerable stable of highly original Scandinavian crime writers, courtesy of the translation skills of Don Bartlett, Bernard Scudder, Marlaine Delargy, Kari Dickson, and the husband and wife team Tiina Nunnally and Steven T. Murray.
This book is my first experience of Norwegian Anne Holt's writing, apparently her third, lauded by no less than Val McDermid and Peter Gutteridge. The very mundane title, no doubt a simplification of the original Norwegian one (which is not even mentioned on the title page) does it no service and tends to suggest a cosier fireside mystery, which it certainly isn't. Instead this was a roller coaster ride of a story that swept me away.
Holt weaves her credible and tautly written story from the proposition of a forceful US woman senator succeeding George Bush to the White House - the echoes of Obama's accession will resonate even though this was published in 2006. It is also a classic `locked room' mystery. The new President of the United States, Helen Lardahl Bentley, disappears completely and inexplicably from a locked and super-secure hotel room whilst on an official state visit to her family's `old country' of origin. The Oslo police and the Justice ministries are shocked, highly embarrassed and completely baffled; but squirm with even greater anger and indignation when the FBI and myriad other US authority figures descend on Oslo and bulldoze their way into internal investigations with casual arrogance (one wonders perhaps if this is not too impossible an occurrence?) and with all the tact and diplomacy of a herd of reindeer in a china shop.

I love these books and this is a good one, great characters that are multi-dimensional. It's not a whodunnit, but a how and why they dunnit. She takes us on a Norwegian sleigh ride of US politics, it was interesting to see how Norwegians might react to a US president. The middle East comes into it and again it is a fresh , if slight perspective on this. I couldn't stop reading it, I liked the people in it and didn't want to leave them.

This is the first I have read on this series but won't be the last. Anne Holt has created a really sympathetic and interesting protagonist in Johanne Vik, mother of a young girl, who gets involved in the kidnapping of the American President who is visiting Norway.

I have ready the previous books in this series and would not recommend anyone reading this book before the others as it makes a more complete story with the knowledge of the characters. Clever plot line and the usual overlapping story which is a particular attraction the Johanne Vik books.

A fantastic read. Intricate enough to keep me engaged all the way through: an ending that was of the same standard as the rest of the book; interesting characters. I bought the next book straight away. An intelligent read.

Another great book by this author. Though not my favourite. I prefer to not read about terrorism or links I like a police thriller to be police based & stay there. Though this had twists & turns it was good. Well written & as part of the set I did finish it. I enjoy Holt books immensely & will continue delving!

This fair races along and was very fast-paced and interesting although I felt a little bogged down around two-thirds in when it all got quite heavy with the political stuff.
It was interesting to see Hanne appear too in this story although we've also been handed a massive spoiler as well which made me sigh.........loudly. We're only about to have number 5 in her series released here and therefore it's spoilt that a little which is a shame as up till now I think I've preferred that series.
I missed hearing about Kristiane and her King of America as much in this one. She didn't feature anywhere near as much as she usually does and neither did Johanne either, really.
I wondered if this one used the same translator as Punishment as she once again went with English spelling as she did in that but not on the second book. There were some missed hyphens I spotted and again some added where they're not needed. I made mention of lever arch files in a previous book being referred to as arch lever files. This time they're lever arch lever files which made me smile !! Caste was also used instead of cast and mosaic when I think possibly prosaic would have worked.
It's a shame there's only one more in this particular series which I look forward to but in other ways think it's a pity there are no more to come. Hopefully Johanne and Adam may cross over into the other series from time to time.
