Torkil Damhaug
Death By Water

Liss lives in Amsterdam, but when her sister disappears, she jumps on the first plane home. In Oslo she searches desperately for answers. But someone is willing to kill in order to hide the truth behind her sister’s gruesome fate.
Death by Water is a thriller that trespasses the boundaries between past and present. It is about a child who searches for love and meets with desire. Several of the characters appearing in the novel can also be found in his previous thriller Se meg, Medusa (Look at Me, Medusa).

'Another confirmation that the Norwegian climate, landscape and psychology is a lucky combination for the making of outstanding crime.'

Jyllands-posten, Denmark

'Incredibly exciting and utterly unputdownable.'

Fyns Stiftstidene, Denmark

'An outstandingly good, psychological, Norwegian crime. It will appeal broadly to readers of Scandinavian crime, and keep you hooked from the first page until the last.'
