Anne Holt

Fear Not

During a snowy Christmas season in Norway, psychologist and profiler Inger Johanne Vik finds not only her husband and herself but also her autistic daughter drawn into the investigation of a number of disturbing deaths. Her husband, detective Yngvar Stubø, has been dispatched to Bergen to investigate the shocking Christmas Eve murder of local bishop Eva Karin Lysgaard. In Oslo, the bodies keep turning up – though the causes of death vary. But before long, Inger Johanne starts noticing a pattern.

Fear Not is a thrilling crime novel that raises questions about religion, human rights, and the very nature of love itself. Anne Holt has the courage to go beyond conventional crime writing and peppers the story with red-hot political issues, criticizing intolerance and revitalizing the genre.

Fear Not is the fourth installment in the Inger Johanne Vik series.

An interesting and suspenseful crime novel.
