I Am Number 13

In his dark rage, murder is art – Now he wants to sign his masterpiece

In September 2017, a Norwegian exchange student is found murdered in a park outside Amsterdam, taken out with a bolt pistol. Criminal investigator Bogart Bull is sent to Amsterdam on the first flight. In the Dutch capital, there is a man who calls himself Rezník and regards himself as a groundbreaking artist. And Rezník has only just begun.

A new murder takes place, this time with a weapon that bewilders the police.

Øystein Borge is a writer who masters the craftmanship of crime writing to perfection.
