Product Description

Review

Enger is one of the most unusual and intense talents in the field. (Barry Forshaw Independent)

Slick, compelling and taut, Pierced combines a sophisticated layering of mysteries with an intensely scarred hero embarked on a tragic quest. A dark and suspenseful blast of Nordic exposure. (Chris Ewan)

Superbly compelling ... the characters leap right off the page, and the relationship between them is as twisted and complex as the story itself. (Shotsmag)

The Killing took us by surprise, The Bridge was a good follow-up, but the political drama Borgen knocked spots of both. For readers who enjoy these Scandinavian imports, this novel is a treat . . . the dialogue is sharp and snappy and the characters seem to come alive in this sophisticated and suspenseful tale. (Jessica Mann Literary Review)

Book Description

For fans of Borgen, The Killing and the Wallander series, Thomas Enger's Scarred is a thrilling novel of murder and political scandal in Oslo.

This series is becoming compulsive. Scarred moves the ongoing storyline of who torched Henning Juul's flat, injuring him and killing his son, a small step further but is essentially a two pronged tale of Henning's sister's political problems and the investigation of an elderly nursing home resident's murder. I thought it was a great read with plenty of plot action - not too many twists as it is a straightforward, linear narrative - to keep you interested. Henning Juul is a great character and not one we see too often as a protagonist - he is an honourable man trying his best in sad circumstances.
I am really loving this series as it just seems to get better with every book and I can hardly wait for the next one.

...but not the best of the three. There were sort of three separate stories going on at the same time, two of which seemed to be uncomfortably shoehorned together and the third which didn't seem to move the over arching story forward much. I'll read the next book though to see where it goes

By Raven TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 10 Mar. 2014
Format: Paperback
Okay so we’ve been Burned and Pierced so now prepare to be Scarred by the latest instalment in Thomas Enger’s superlative Henning Juul series. Focussing on our dogged, emotionally and physically damaged reporter, Juul, Enger has carved out an exceptional niche in the current Scandinavian crime fiction market. In this book in particular, there is more than a nod to the Borgen phenomena, as Juul’s estranged sister Trine, Norway’s Secretary of State becomes the focus of some unwelcome press attention…

I thoroughly enjoyed the way that this book in particular changed the direction of the series somewhat with the aforementioned development of Juul’s sister Trine in the overall plot. She is a complicated and layered character, as is Juul, and the tentative re-establishment of contact between the two in the wake of their previous estrangement, is handled with a deft touch and delicacy by Enger. Trine’s life is spiralling out of control with a malicious sex scandal story, in much the same way as Juul’s did in the wake of the events and his personal loss of the previous books, and Enger is pitch perfect in his depiction of the baying wolves of the press and her fellow politicians as her political career unravels. What unfolds is not only a brutally honest tale of political intrigue, but how the bonds of family can sometimes be an enormous burden and source of sadness to those involved, as events of the past sometimes refuse to rest in peace as Henning and Trine discover.

In a parallel story, regular police protagonist Inspector Bjarne Brogeland, is investigating a particularly brutal murder at an old people’s home of a curmudgeonly ex-schoolteacher.

An interesting story although I had a distinct feeling that I had read a similar revenge story,in a Scandinavian thriller not that long ago..I like the rather flawed characters and can't wait to find out who set that fire and why.Maybe in the next book?

Scarred – Another brilliant Scandi Thriller

Scarred by Thomas Enger is the third book in his Henning Juul series but my first of his books and an excellent and very welcome introduction has been made. The cover says for fans of Borgen I would also add with a dash of The Killing thrown in for free. This is part murder mystery and political thriller combined the best of both worlds put together with a well thought out plot and well written or in my case well translated in to English.

Henning Juul is an investigative reporter who has just returned to work after being on a house fire in which his young son was killed who has a famous sister whom he never speaks to and a mother who likes the drink and smoking. He has few to no real friends to name, he still loves his ex-wife but gets lonely and when depressed watches football on the local park. Not so much a defective detective but definitely a loner who likes to get to the bottom of a story.

He is sent to cover a gruesome murder of an elderly woman who was close to death any way but the knitting needles in the eyes may be over kill. As the investigation seems to be going nowhere another murder happens and there are links between the two murders but it is hard to see the link.

While this is happening his famous sister is Justice Secretary in the Norwegian Government but her world comes crashing down when she is accused of sexual harassment of a young male politician. While he and his sister have problems between them he still wants to help her out and give her support but cannot really investigate as his hands are tied by his relationship to his sister.

It is when his sister’s world is falling apart that what is happening to her collides with the murder cases that things become interesting.
