The Ice

The Ice is a tense international thriller that plays out in one of Earth’s most inhospitable places – the North Pole.

Former Special Forces commando Anna Aune has abandoned civilization, hiding out in a hovercraft at the North Pole. She’s there for the duration of the Arctic winter to document the destruction unleashed by climate change. On All Saints’ Day, the pitch-black sky is suddenly lit up by a distress flare shot up from a Chinese research station. Anna and her colleague are the only ones close enough to come to their rescue. But is the flare a cry for help – or a warning sign?
At the Chinese base, scenes from a nightmare await them. In the laboratory, they find the researchers dead, frozen solid and covered in ice. It quickly becomes clear that they were brutally murdered. A savage power struggle has provoked a full-scale international conflict for Arctic resources. And Anna Aune is caught in the middle of it all.

I love how the writer just plunges straight into the action and maintains the tension throughout the book.

Stavanger Aftenblad

The Ice is a near-perfect thriller.


The Ice is a claustrophobic thriller.


Highly exciting action, a pinch of conspiracy theories and the rough, almost unreal setting make the thriller a real experience. No wonder eight German publishers were interested in this debut. … A gripping, action-packed thriller that has enough depth to please even the most demanding thriller reader.

The author keeps the tension up from the first to the last page. Once you have started reading, it is almost impossible to stop, it is so gripping and entertaining.
