They have just become parents, but the outside world won’t spare Superintendent Yngvar Stubø and profiler Inger Johanne Vik. A series of shocking murders all have symbolic dismembering or desecration of the corpses in common, reminding Inger Johanne of a lecture on Proportional Retribution at the FBI Academy. Are the Norwegian Police facing a biblical avenger or a simple copycat?
The internationally bestselling What Never Happens, the second installment in the Inger Johanne Vik series, has sold more than 500 000 copies.
A follow-up to writer Holt’s Punishment, [What Never Happens] shows she really knows her stuff.
Set in Oslo, this excellent thriller begins with the discovery of the body of a popular talk show host with her tongue removed and split in two before matters heat up with the crucifixion of a right-wing leader. Holt keeps the plot and dialogue tight.
