Set in the picturesque rural town of Fjellberghavn, the highly respected police chief Ole Vik and his adept detective Cecilie Hopen are constantly being dragged into investigations riddled with social dilemmas.
The Fjellberghavn series consists of fourteen books so far and has sold more than 1.2 million copies in Norway.
Through his addictive prose, Jørgen Jæger makes you want to know everything about Fjellberghavn and its inhabitants. In this series, we follow skilled detective Cecilie Hopen and highly respected police chief Ole Vik. The two form an unlikely pair that represent “two worlds”; they are the analog versus the digital. Young versus old. City versus country.
We also get to know Fjellberghavn’s population, and follow the joys and sorrows of everyday life in Fjellberghavn – as well as the criminal activities that occur in this little place.
Jørgen Jæger is an ambitious composer who combines the thriller with the socially realistic crime novel and creates a universe where everything can happen and where people are pushed far beyond their tolerance.
