The Raven’s Hour is the third novel in the critically acclaimed series about Detective Inspector Gabriel Navarseth set in occupied Trondheim.
July 1943. It is high summer in Trondheim when a German naval officer and his young mistress, a member of the Norwegian Nazi party, are found brutally murdered. The Germans are already thirsty for revenge after an air raid on the city two days earlier and now somebody must pay. Detective Inspector Gabriel Navarseth of the State Police is living dangerously, juggling the investigation between the Norwegian police and the Gestapo. And as Navarseth also continues his work for the resistance movement, Norwegian informants are playing deadly double games. Who is to be trusted in times like this?
The Raven’s Hour is crime of the highest quality, and we can hardly wait for the continuation… there is hard to find a Norwegian writer who writes better crime.
