Hanne Kristin Rohde
Sacrificial Lamb

When Mikael finds the body of a young man wearing only a fox fur in his bed, his first thought is that he must be his wife’s lover. But Nina seems as mystified as her husband.

Chief investigator Wilma Lind and her team at Oslo Police have an uncommonly demanding criminal case on their hands: they don’t know who the dead man is, the pathologist can’t find a cause of death, and no one in the household will admit to knowing him. Nina’s brother Jakob is the country’s Minister of Agriculture. He was seen in his sister’s house the same day the body was found.

In Sacrificial Lamb, everyone has something to hide, and several people have motive to kill. But does Wilma really have the authority to investigate a government minister? And how will she manage to keep her son and animal activist Birk away from the investigation when so much of the evidence is pointing in the direction of the fur industry?

This time Hanne Kristin Rhode had made things more difficult for her protagonist than ever before.

The Wilma Lind-series has a total print run of 220 000 and includes four titles: MØRKE HJERTER, BARE ET BARN, GUDMOREN and OFFERDYR.
Rohde’s crime novels have figured among the top 50 most sold crime fiction books in Norway in the last ten years.

Hanne Kristin Rohde

Hanne Kristin Rohde is Norway’s most frequently profiled police official, and she is much noted for her open and genuine communication style.

She is fearless and direct and is often known for involving the Norwegian population in her police work. Under Rohde’s influence, the Norwegian police agency assumed a new role — a face — as well as the confidence that things were getting done and cases were being solved.

Rohde was educated as a lawyer and has worked in the police force since 1989. In 1994, she became the Prosecuting Director for the Oslo Police District and in 2002 she became a top official for the Oslo Police. Starting in 2008, she began working as the division leader for violent and sexual crimes in Oslo.

Following the terrorist attack in Norway on July 22, 2011, Rohde worked as the leader on the investigation and has since led investigative teams covering a number of other large murder cases.
