The Royal Kidnapping is a furious, feisty and action-packed story about resourcefulness and raw power, but above all else about heroism and boundless fatherly love.
Skaugum, early spring 2023, time of day 4.41 a.m.: four masked men kill the Crown Prince’s bodyguards and abduct his daughter, the next in line to the throne. All of Norway is put on high alert. Evidence soon shows that forces from Russia are behind the kidnapping, and the Norwegian emergency services turn to legendary police detective Frans Nansen. He has grief and a little girl of his own to deal with; since he lost his wife in a fire a few years earlier, he has been battling his inner demons. It isn’t until the Crown Prince himself approaches him as head of state and as a father that Nansen accepts that he must take on this impossible mission: to cross the northern border alone, locate the princess and – most difficult of all – bring her back to Norwegian territory, alive.
