A cryptic murder resurrects dark memories of past atrocities in this latest mystery from the master of Norwegian crime writing.
Award-winning author K. O. Dahl received international acclaim for his gripping debut thriller, "The Fourth Man," which introduced readers to Detective Inspector Frank Frolich and Detective Chief Inspector Gunnarstranda. Now the Oslo detectives are back.
It's Friday the thirteenth, the Norwegian capital is enveloped in freezing cold, and Reidar Folke Jespersen passes what will be the last day of his life.
The aging antique dealer leaves home and takes a taxi to a nearby cafe. A few hours later, through the window of the cafe, he watches his wife enter the door to a flat on the other side of the street, where her lover lives.
In the early hours of the following morning, Jespersen is found stabbed to death, sitting naked in an armchair in the display window of his antique shop.
Detectives Frolich and Gunnarstranda are called to the scene. Their only clues are a numerical combination written in ink on the body of the dead man, a red string tied around his neck, a few missing World War II objects, and a number of people extremely satisfied with the news of the man's death. Questions of love and betrayal, loyalty and guilt consume the investigation, just as they fill the private lives of the investigators.
K. O. Dahl's dark and poetic writing moves through the shadows of one country's history---a country where victims, perpetrators, and even police officers are haunted by the past, still trying to cope with dark memories of the Nazi occupation. "The Man in the Window"," the second installment in Dahl's Oslo police mysteries, " is an intricate and chilling detective story about love, revenge, and the inescapable past.
