'Fear Not' is the fourth novel featuring Detective Inspector Adam Studo,
and his wife,the criminal profiler,Johanne Vik.It is the the most ambitious
one to date.
Studo is sent to Bergen to investigate the murder of a female Bishop.
Meanwhile in Oslo several other seemingly unrelated murders are being
discovered,and Johanne Vik's autistic daughter appears to be the victim
of a stalker. The police in both Bergen and Oslo are puzzled,and making
slow progress,eventually Johanne Vik seems to see a connection between all
the disparate events.
The plot is complicated ,yet fully engaging ,as all the pieces come
together.The author also engages the reader in issues of tolerance,
hate crime,fundamentalist religious views and love.

Oslo at Christmas: a corpse is pulled from the river, a liberal woman bishop is murdered, a woman waits at home for her wife to return from a trip abroad, an other wordly child is rescued from certain death by an enigmatic stranger. These events are all linked but how? This is quite a confusing book to read as it goes back and forth between the viewpoints of several characters, some of whom are not at all well developed so that it becomes quite difficult to know what is important and what isn't. Reading it on Kindle doesn't help as you can't easily flick back to find out who's who. It takes some time for the acton to really get going and the frequent jumps from one character to another make it quite a slow read. That said, though, when it did get going and you manage to work out who's who, it's not a bad read. Might be better to buy a hard copy though!

Anne Holt has written two series of crime novels, one featuring a disabled former detective, Hanne Wilhelmsen, and the other featuring a criminologist. Johanne Vik. I recently read (and reviewed) one of the first series (1222) and was not impressed, but in view of the authors reputation I decided to try the Vik series, of which this is one.

Joanne Vik works on hate crimes and is married to Adam, a detective with the Norwegian National Criminal Investigative Service, and through him learns of two apparently unrelated murders. One is of a female bishop, who was stabbed while inexplicably out walking alone late one very cold night near Christmas; and the other is of a young male prostitute, whose decomposed body is found in a river. Later, several other murders are committed, also apparently unrelated.

The breakthrough comes when an old friend of Joanne's, who she has not seen or communicated with for many years, sends her an email saying she will be visiting Oslo from America and would to meet up. By an unbelievable coincidence, the friend works for an organisation that keeps track of organisations that promote hate crimes of all types; racist, homophobic, religious etc. From the information the friend gives her, Joanne makes the link between the murders and then sets about persuading the police, without, remarkably, even informing her husband, who is working on the case of the murdered bishop. The link itself leaves open several obvious questions, such as `Why Norway?' when America is full of suitable victims. The answer is actually given at the end of the story, but is very unconvincing.

More Scandinavian noir.... Fear Not is a well written and fast paced story involving a series of apparently unconnected killings that are baffling the police service. Johanne Vik is a criminologist and not formally linked to the police but is married Adam who is a detective with the National Criminal Investigative Service. It is Johanne who makes the link between the murders - which all appear to be connected with homosexuality. An old friend now living in US visits and shares some of her research into hate groups currently active in the United States. But Johanne has to convince the police about the links and at the same time begins to feel that her own family is being threatened.

It is a pretty complicated story with a vast cast of characters. Many of these characters have obviously featured in earlier books by this author and we are frequently given brief accounts of their past lives. This is all done economically so does not detract from the flow of the narrative. I found some of the Norwegian names hard to remember - and had to work out whether Ingelen, Synnøve, Kjetil and Silje were male or female!

A good, gripping read. I shall certainly look out for more books by Ann Holt.

By Sue Kichenside TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Dec. 2012
Format: Hardcover
On Christmas Eve, the autistic teenage daughter of a criminologist is almost mown down by an Oslo city tram. Who is the stranger who rescues her? On the same night, a well-regarded and high-profile female bishop is slain on a quiet Bergen street. Random violence or murder with motive? And are the two events connected?

With these intriguing opening hooks, Anne Holt is off and running. Unfortunately, she then proceeds to run off in at least a dozen different directions. The odd ruminations of a gay billionaire. The gruesome body of a young illegal immigrant fished out of the dark, freezing fjord waters. An up-and-coming artist dead from an apparent drug overdose. A mysterious photograph that goes missing. The mouldering body of a missing lesbian. The murder of a young gay prostitute. The deeply suspicious, oh, I could go on and on. But so does the author. One would think that a writer of Anne Holt's experience would know that too many hooks spoil the broth.

Also, Ms Holt has a habit of linking her various scenarios in an overly cutesy way; this was clever to begin with but palled before long. The translation, by Marlaine Delargy, is excellent.

It added to the atmosphere to read this just before Christmas.
