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.

The Oslo Detectives are back in another chilling slice of Nordic Noir ... Frølich searches for the mysterious sister of a young female asylum seeker, but when people start to die, everything points to an old case and a series of events that someone will do anything to hide... ‘Impossible to put down’ Guardian ‘Absorbing, heart-rending and perfectly plotted’ Denzil Meyrick ‘A masterclass in plotting, atmosphere and character that finely balances shocking twists with the coppers’ complicated personal lives’ Sunday Times –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Suspended from duty, Detective Frølich is working as a private investigator, when his girlfriend’s colleague asks for his help with a female asylum seeker, who the authorities are about to deport. She claims to have a sister in Norway, and fears that returning to her home country will mean instant death. Frølich quickly discovers the whereabouts of the young woman’s sister, but things become increasingly complex when she denies having a sibling, and Frølich is threatened off the case by the police. As the body count rises, it becomes clear that the answers lie in an old investigation, and the mysterious sister, who is now on the run... A dark, chilling and up-to-the-minute Nordic Noir thriller, Sister is also a tense and well-plotted murder mystery with a moving tragedy at its heart, cementing Kjell Ola Dahl as one of the greatest crime writers of our generation. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––‘Kjell Ola Dahl’s novels are superb’ William Ryan ‘Suspenseful, beautifully and clearly written, with a sure-footed plot, this is a book that thrills’ Live & Deadly ‘Dark, stylish and suspenseful ... the perfect example of why Nordic Noir has become such a popular genre’ Readers Digest ‘If you have never sampled Dahl, now is the time to try’ Daily Mail ‘A triumph of skill, invention and edge-of-the-seat storytelling. As always, not to be missed!’ Denzil Meyrick ‘Dahl is a quiet master of the detective thriller, delivering complex plots and a simpatico hero — Frank Frolich, cop turned PI — with Chandleresque elan plus a serious intelligence that roots out essential truths. Here, Frolich is pulled into the “shadowlands” of Norway’s asylum seekers and those who profit from them, in an impeccably plotted gold-star, A-grade work of Scandi noir’ The Times Crime Club ‘The Norwegian writer Kjell Ola Dahl deserves attention ... Kjell Ola Dahl has always been skilful at character and setting, but the particular defining characteristic of Sister is the steadily accelerating pace, handled with a sure touch. And Frølich remains a rounded and intriguing character, particularly in this latest iteration’ Barry Forshaw, European Literature Network ‘Early in Dahl’s outstanding seventh ensemble procedural (after 2018’s The Ice Swimmer), failing Oslo PI Frank Frølich, who still misses the police job he left in disgrace, meets with Aisha, a teenage refugee from Turkey with some sort of serious psychological illness. Aisha hopes Frank will help her find her missing sister, Sheyma, who moved to Norway in 2005 and became a hotel worker ... Through Fredrik, Frank becomes entangled in a possible insurance fraud case involving the ferry fire. A murder raises the ante. Both cases stall, making the world-weary Frank feel as if he’s a pawn in a much larger and more sinister game. This is a must for fans of Nordic noir’ Publishers Weekly STARRED review

Oslo detectives Gunnarstranda and Frølich are back ... and this time, it’s personal... When the body of a woman turns up in a dumpster, scalded and wrapped in plastic, Inspector Frank Frølich is shocked to discover that he knows her ... and their recent meetings may hold the clue to her murder. As he begins to learn more about the tragic events surrounding her death, Frølich’s colleague Gunnarstranda deals with a disturbingly similar cold case involving the murder of a young girl in northern Norway. An unsettling number of coincidences emerge, and Frølich is forced to look into his own past to find the answers - and to catch the killer before he strikes again. Dark, brooding and utterly chilling, Faithless is a breath-taking and atmospheric page-turner that marks the return of an internationally renowned and award-winning series, from one of the fathers of Nordic Noir. ‘This is a chilling novel about betrayal, written in a hard-boiled style that highlights the careless misogyny of Dahl’s characters’ The Crime Roundup in The Sunday Times 'Dahl has an international reputation for skilfully plotted police procedurals that are drenched in the minutiae of detection. This is a fine example of his talent, featuring two of his most famous detectives, Gunnarstranda and Frolich, who disagree with each other far more often than they agree ... If you have never sampled Dahl, now is the time to try’ Daily Mail ‘If you want your worst fears about what goes on inside a cop's mind confirmed, meet K.O.

If you haven’t read one yet, you need to - right now’ William Ryan 'If you’re looking for a dramatic, fast-paced and character focused crime read, FAITHLESS is a good option for you, particularly if you have read others in the Oslo Detectives series!’ The Crime Review

This is one of Scandinavia's top crime writers in the tradition of Henning Mankell. It was one of those days in February of which there are far too many, despite its being the shortest month of the year. February is the year's parenthesis. The tax forms have already been sent in and the tourist season has not yet started: there is nothing on the schedule. Greyish-brown slush lay in the gutters and the hills around the city were barely visible through the fog. Like the golden buttons on the waistcoat of a forgotten snowman, you could just make out the lights of the funicular up the hillside and the street lamps were lit even in the middle of the day...In this crime drama detective Varg Veum's adventures lead him into a dark world of privileged teenage girls who have been drawn into drugs and prostitution. The situation worsens when the local judge is discovered in a luxury hotel, dead and clad only in women's lingerie. Called in by anxious parents to look for a missing daughter and explain the judge's death, Varg finds clues that lead him only deeper into Bergen's criminal underworld.
