Jørgen Jæger is one of Norway’s best-selling crime writers. Heartless went straight to the top of the Bestseller list when published. His latest book, The Judas Fix, was the third best-selling Norwegian crime novel in 2019, and he has sold more than 750 000 books in Norway.
A murder shakes the small town of Fjellberghavn. Everything suggests a family tragedy.
Then another murder happens, and then another. All tracks lead to two different perpetrators, but is it that simple? Police station chief Cecilie Hopen gets no easy task when her apparently obvious solution may not be so obvious as it seemed.
Marte Mellingen’s body rejects the heart pump she uses in anticipation of a heart transplant, and she is on the verge of dying in the donor queue. While Ole Vik is desperately looking for a way to save his beloved’s life, he gets an offer that he accepts. But something feels wrong. How far is the honorable man Ole Vik willing to go to save the life of the one he loves?
Jittering excitement, personal warmth and human relationships are Jørgen Jæger’s trademark.
Since his debut in 2003, Jørgen Jæger has established Cecilie Hopen and sheriff Ole Vik as some of the country’s most popular crime heroes.
