For police officer Cecilie Hopen, the investigation turns into a nightmare as her partner Bernhard is arrested in connection with the death of the guard and the robbery.
Police chief Ole Vik is still on sick leave after a horrific car crash, and the independent and resourceful Cecilie Hopen struggles to be heard when she discovers new alarming clues.
The Knight's Cross is the seventh book in the series about Ole Vik and Cecilie Hopen.
