Jørgen Brekke
The Nature of Man

Police detective Odd Singsaker is in a house on the island Hitra. There’s a corpse lying next to him, and he is aiming a shotgun at a person in a charred sofa. Obviously, quite a lot has happened since Singsaker’s wife Felicia Stone packed her belongings and left him.
A corrupt, ice cold policeman, a partying student who suddenly finds himself in trouble, a wife who strikes back at her husband and a debt collector who knows how to swing a bat - they all have contributed to land Odd Singsaker in this mess.
The third Odd Singsaker novel is the story of what happened to Felicia Stone, about crime on a large scale, love that refuses to fade and the four humours. And about everything else that constitutes human nature.
