Anne Holt is the latest crime writer to reveal how truly dark it gets in Scandinavia-Val McDermid 1222 meters above sea level and the worst snow storm in recent Norwegian history is raging. Marooned in a mountain pass and with night falling, 200 travellers are forced to abandon their snowbound train and decamp into a centuries-old mountain hotel. They ought to be safe from the storm here, But as dawn breaks one of them will be found dead, murdered. With the storm showing no sign of abating, it will be up to the forcibly retired police inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen to find the culprit before they strike again. But Hanne has her own demons to overcome too. She has learned the hard way that truth comes at a price and sometimes that price isnt worth paying. Her pursuit of truth and justice has cost her the love of her life, a glittering career in the Police Department and the Ministry of Justice, and she is crippled by a bullet lodged in her spine. This is the first installment of a unique crime series that will move back in time, telling the story of a contradictory modern heroine, who although intelligent, well-educated and attractive isnt always at ease with herself or the modern world, and who doesnt always take the right path or make the right decisions.
