Olivia Henriksen is a private detective. Although she takes on all manner of cases, currently her work usually involves the surveillance of cheating spouses. But when the notorious politician Arne Gustavsen of the Socialist Left party is found dead at the water’s edge, near the Ankerholm Sailing Cub, she finds herself drawn into a murder case which involves environmental politics, cynical tycoons, and dirty dealings. Fortunately, Olivia possesses the necessary tenacity in her professional life – her love life, however, is less certain.
Here we encounter an elegant and often subtle use of language that fits the story, and enhances the reader’s enjoyment. A `cuddly crime novel’ to be relished with a plaid over the knees and a glass of port standing by.
