Blind Goddess introduces the world of brilliant, arrogant Police Detective Hanne Wilhelmsen and her admiring colleagues: a world where the goddess of justice is blindfolded, and it is their job to do her bidding. A drug-related murder unravels a corrupt network in the police and justice departments, with an ulterior motive to finance Norwegian secret service operations.
Blind Goddess is the first installment in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series.
Blind Goddess was awarded with the Riverton Prize (Rivertonprisen) 1994 for ‘Best Norwegian Crime Novel of the Year’. In 1997, it was turned into a TV-series directed by Carl Jørgen Kiønig.
A promising first. Hanne Wilhelmsen is a brilliant detective character that masters the humour and hard-boiled manner of the genre without turning into a travesty of a woman in trench coat.
