No Echo

The murder of a celebrity chef proves a hard case for the Oslo Police: Brede Ziegler was everybody’s friend and yet nobody knew anything about him. Returning from exile, Hanne Wilhelmsen is able to crack the case through the help of an aging street prostitute. At the same time, this unlikely woman finally helps Hanne to experience a little happiness and inner peace.

(Co-authored by Berit Reiss-Andersen, Holt’s under-secretary as Minister of Justice)

No Echo is the sixth installment in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series.

This sixth Hanne Wilhelmsen novel is a nearly pitch-perfect procedural layered over a moving exploration of rejection and abandonment.
