Description

When a dead man is lifted from the freezing waters of Oslo Harbour just before Christmas, Detective Lena Stigersand’s stressful life suddenly becomes even more complicated. Not only is she dealing with a cancer scare, a stalker and an untrustworthy boyfriend, but it seems both a politician and Norway’s security services might be involved in the murder.
With her trusted colleagues, Gunnarstranda and Frølich, at her side, Lena digs deep into the case and finds that it not only goes to the heart of the Norwegian establishment, but it might be rather to close to her personal life for comfort.
Dark, complex and nail-bitingly tense, The Ice Swimmer is the latest and most unforgettable instalment in the critically acclaimed Oslo Detective series, by the godfather of Nordic Noir.

From Publishers Weekly

20 August 2018 – Lena Stigersand, one of the decent, talented, hard-working Oslo police detectives in Dahl's ensemble procedural series, takes center stage in the excellent sixth installment to appear in English (after 2017's Faithless). When the body of political aide Sveinung Adeler is removed from an icy Oslo fjord shortly before Christmas, Lena takes charge of the case. As she investigates Adeler's suspicious death, she uncovers international intrigue involving a prominent Norwegian politician and runs into opposition from Norway's National Security Service. A second case, in which a homeless drug addict apparently committed suicide by jumping onto some train tracks, raises the stakes. Lending assistance are grouchy, intuitive old-school detective Gunnarstranda and still-suspended Frank Fr lich, Gunnarstranda's trusted partner. Meanwhile, Lena must deal with a troubled fellow detective, her mixed feelings about her new journalist lover, and the brutal necessity of confronting her own mortality when she's diagnosed with breast cancer. Fans of Scandinavian noir will be eager for Dahl's next book.
