Product description

Review

'Gunnar Staalesen is one of my very favourite Scandinavian authors. Operating out of Bergen in Norway, his private eye, Varg Veum, is a complex but engaging anti-hero. Varg means 'wolf' in Norwegian, and this is a series with very sharp teeth' - Ian Rankin

'A Norwegian Chandler - Jo Nesbo

'Gunnar Staalesen was writing suspenseful and socially conscious Nordic Noir long before any of today's Swedish crime writers had managed to put together a single book page... one of Norway's most skilful storytellers' - Johan Theorin

'Razor-edged Scandinavian crime fiction at its finest' - Quentin Bates'Not many books hook you in the first chapter this one did, and never let go!' - Mari Hannah

'With its exploration of family dynamics and the complex web of human behaviour, Staalesen's novel echoes the great California author Ross MacDonald's Lew Archer mysteries... mature and captivating' - Herald Scotland

'Norwegian master Staalesen is an author who eschews police procedural narratives for noirish private eye pieces... with some abrasive social commentary' - Barry Forshaw, Financial Times

'Staalesen shares a similar style and concerns with Fossum, and there is a world-weary existential sadness that hangs over his central detective. The prose is stripped back and simple, and both writers like to leave the deep emotion bubbling under the surface the real turmoil of their characters' lives just under the surface for the reader to intuit, rather than have it spelled out for them' - Doug Johnstone, The Big Issue

'This masterful first-person narrative is very much character-driven, as Varg's tenacious personality drives his destiny and the events that lead up to the surprise-laden finale. We look forward to more translations of this series' --Crime Fiction Lover

About the Author

One of the fathers of Nordic Noir, Gunnar Staalesen was born in Bergen, Norway, in 1947. He made his debut at the age of twenty-two with Seasons of Innocence and in 1977 he published the first book in the Varg Veum series. He is the author of over twenty titles, which have been published in twenty-four countries and sold over four million copies. Twelve film adaptations of his Varg Veum crime novels have appeared since 2007, starring the popular Norwegian actor Trond Espen Seim. Staalesen has won three Golden Pistols (including the Prize of Honour) and Where Roses Never Die won the 2017 Petrona Award for crime fiction. He lives with his wife in Bergen.
