Book 4, Hanne Wilhelmsen Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



This investigation brings her into conflict with the highest powers in Norway: what secrets lie behind the death of the Prime Minister?

Less than six months after taking office, the Norwegian Prime Minister is found dead. She has been shot in the head. But was it a politically motivated assassination or personal revenge?

The death shakes the country to its core. The hunt for her killer is complicated, intense and gruelling. Hanne Wilhelmsen must contain the scandal before a private tragedy becomes a public outrage, in what will become the most sensitive case of her career...

This is a story of lies, intrigue and politics. The Lion's Mouth questions who holds the power in Norway, and how far they will go to use it.

From Publishers Weekly

14 December 2015 – First published in Norway in 1997 and coauthored with Reiss-Andersen, Edgar-finalist Holt's compelling, character-driven fourth Hanne Wilhelmsen novel (after 2013's Death of the Demon) delivers a one-two punch: first, the fatal shooting of Norwegian prime minister Birgitte Volter at her desk by a killer who seemingly vanishes without a trace; then, days later, the death of a Supreme Court judge in mysterious circumstances. And despite unprecedented efforts by the police and Security Service with no lack of conspiracy theories by pundits, who point the finger at everyone from right-wing extremists to mysterious forces linked to a controversial probe into the deaths of at least 800 Norwegian children decades earlier it looks like an investigation in danger of going nowhere fast. But as series fans know, smart money doesn't bet against Oslo's Chief Insp. Hanne Wilhelmsen, who's officially on extended leave. Holt uses her surprising plot to highlight the nature of power and the extent to which it can corrupt.
