In this thrilling story of rape and revenge, Hanne Wilhelmsen races against the clock to prevent the privatization of justice. How does our society treat individuals such as rape victims and refugees? The novel delves into the nature of powerlessness – the powerlessness of immigrants confronting an immigration officer, the powerlessness of a rape victim confronting her aggressor.
Blessed are Those who Thirst is the second installment in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series.
In 1997, Blessed are Those who Thirst became a motion picture directed by Carl Jørgen Kiønig.
Anne Holt goes from strength to strength.
A wonderful combination of old-school police procedure and amateur detective work ... Holt is a master of balancing criminal procedure with suspense ... This is a series that demands to be read, and the more quickly the better.
A perfect entry point into Scandinavian crime ... A sure pleasure for police-procedural fans who read everything from Slaughter to Nesbo.
