Operasjon Mørkemann

Operasjon Mørkemann Operation Shadowman

Detective Agency No. 2 #2

Oliver takes a dramatic spill from his bike – but who is behind it?

Oliver falling off his bike may be just a small thing, but the one who dug all the deep holes that caused his fall should at least pay for a new bicycle wheel. Tiril and Oliver’s investigation into the culprit’s identity leads them to the deserted Rønneberget and a nighttime encounter with the Shadowman. The case then takes an unexpected turn when they find a mysterious map. To solve the puzzle they will have to think outside the box as they scrutinize both past and present.

Jørn Lier Horst & Hans Jørgen Sandnes’ Detective Agency No. 2 series is crime fiction for the youngest – clever, engaging, and full of thrills! Join our heroes Tiril, Oliver and their dog Ocho as they solve mysteries that have even the adults of Riverton scratching their heads.
