Hanne Kristin Rohde
Terror from a woman's point of view

22 July 2011: Hanne Kristin Rohde, chief at the Oslo Police, is on vacation when the phone rings. A bomb has exploded in the centre of Norway’s capital. Little does she know that this is merely the beginning of her most demanding year ever. Soon she is up to her neck with intense work pressure, high expectations from media and faces illness - both in the family and herself.
In this book Hanne Kristin Rohde shares her experiences after many years of leadership at the Oslo Police. She tells about the young, shy girl who never dared speak up in meetings, and how the same woman some years later leads a packed press conference with international media. Rohde’s reflexions on good and bad leadership are recognisable and instructive - for any workplace.
A book to be inspired by. You can handle bad leaders and overcome your own fears. Your weaknesses can be turned into strengths. You can dare to do a «mental base jump», to be a better version of yourself.

Hanne Kristin Rohde

Hanne Kristin Rohde is Norway’s most frequently profiled police official, and she is much noted for her open and genuine communication style.

She is fearless and direct and is often known for involving the Norwegian population in her police work. Under Rohde’s influence, the Norwegian police agency assumed a new role — a face — as well as the confidence that things were getting done and cases were being solved.

Rohde was educated as a lawyer and has worked in the police force since 1989. In 1994, she became the Prosecuting Director for the Oslo Police District and in 2002 she became a top official for the Oslo Police. Starting in 2008, she began working as the division leader for violent and sexual crimes in Oslo.

Following the terrorist attack in Norway on July 22, 2011, Rohde worked as the leader on the investigation and has since led investigative teams covering a number of other large murder cases.
