I støv og aske In Dust and Ashes

Hanne Wilhelmsen #10

In 2001, three year old Dina is killed in a tragic car accident. Not long thereafter Dina’s mother dies under mysterious circumstances, and Dina’s father Jonas is convicted of her murder.

In 2016, the cold case ends up on the desk of Detective Henrik Holme, who tries to convince his mentor Hanne Wilhelmsen that the father might have been wrongly convicted. Holme and Wilhelmsen discover that the case could be connected to the suicide of an eccentric blogger as well as the kidnapping of the grandson of a EuroJackpot millionaire.

In Dust and Ashes is the tenth and final installment in Anne Holt’s successful series featuring Police Detective Hanne Wilhelmsen.

Reviews

  • “What a delight it is to read Anne Holt! Few succeed in being so thrilling as they discuss contemporary society’s greatest issues.”

    Dagens Nyheter, Sweden

  • “Holt’s writing is more sensitive and fine-tuned than ever. Her depictions of relationship dynamics, either lesbian or hetero, are both sharp and affectionate, and her portrayal of small children is genuinely excellent. /…/ Deeper down in the well-constructed and captivating suspense structures, classic themes such as greed and envy are illustrated, and last but not least how unpredictable, irrational and (self)destructive mourning can be. /…/ successful and refreshing.”

    Aftenposten, Norway

  • “A good, classically constructed plot, with crafty solutions”

    Dagsavisen, Norway
