Liv Eriksson is a psychologist and has worked in some of the world’s toughest emergencies. But when her boyfriend Olav falls to his death while they are mountain climbing in Thailand, she breaks down and isolates herself.
Olav was a researcher in Norway’s central police unit for economic crime and an outstanding computer specialist. Someone has posted a clip of his death fall on the internet. Liv realizes that someone out there knows what really happened when Olav died – and sets out to find them. She soon realizes that Olav had secrets that neither she nor his colleagues knew about. She makes discoveries that cause her to question: did she really know Olav?
The turmoil grows into an obsession. Liv’s pursuit of the truth takes her on a journey – to Munich, Cyprus, Beirut – which becomes increasingly dangerous as she approaches the truth about a finance operation of spectacular dimensions.
The countdown has started for what is to become an unprecedented crime.
A well build and fast paced crime novel, with interesting themes and a super-tough female protagonist.
In Risk rock climbing is liberatingly correctly described, and just as tense and pulsating as the sport can be at it’s best – and as the rest of the story is. The author manages to unite financial crime and climbing in a trustworthy way. This debut is impressing.
