‘Blood Moon’ published in Denmark

Copenhagen is a city encapsulated in ice. Police Sergeant Jeppe Kørner has just returned home from a long vacation, one that’s managed to spark his old passion for life. The holiday mood is abruptly dampened by the appearance of a dead man in a snowdrift in a park. The police suspect that they’re dealing with a case of a homeless person frozen to death, but it’s soon evident that it is a bestial murder, of a far more well-known person.

Things are not always what they seem. Esther Laurenti, professional pensioner and busybody, knows this better than anyone. She traces Police Sergeants Jeppe Kørner and Anette Werner’s footsteps and starts her very own investigation. She and the two sergeants will have to move fast to solve the murder case, one that turns out to involve Jeppe’s best friend, broken dreams, radio shows, and an extremely sophisticated murder weapon.

Katrine Engberg’s Blood Moon is the second installment in the trilogy featuring the Police Sergeants Jeppe Kørner and Anette Werner.
