Henrys hemlighet

Henrys hemlighet To Him Who Knocks

Martin Benner #3

Defense attorney Martin Benner has a weakness for antiques. When his friend Henry dies, Martin is given an offer too good to turn down: to take over Henry’s partial ownership of an antiques store in New York. But his good fortune is short-lived – a man shows up claiming that Henry didn’t die from illness but was murdered. At the same time Martin notices that he’s being watched. Someone is leaving footprints in the snow around his house and his surveillance equipment is sabotaged.

Martin is soon drawn into a feverish hunt for the truth about Henry. His search brings him to a series of supposedly closed hotels with shady business occurring on their premises, a church with too much power, and antiquities containing deadly secrets. The line between truth and lie and friend and enemy grows ever more blurred.

Who was Henry Schiller? And was there more to his death than meets the eye?

To Him Who Knocks is Kristina Ohlsson’s third book about Martin Benner and a riveting and intricate crime novel about a past that won’t let itself be forgotten.

  • “At the heart of [To Him Who Knocks] lies a delightfully intricate mystery to unravel. /.../ From the very first page I loved this well-constructed literary adventure where the protagonists’ lives becomes ever more complicated and dangerous. I’m full of admiration for the ambitious Kristina Ohlsson’s ability to always maintain such a high quality and to find just the right tone and ambience for each and every one of her books. And I sincerely hope that Benner is back to stay.”

    Skånska Dagbladet, Sweden

  • “The third installment of the delightfully hard-boiled Martin Benner series is like a joyous blend of Raymond Chandler, Ian Fleming and Dan Brown. /.../ Kristina Ohlsson is one of the most talented Swedish crime authors out there. A driven stylist whose works are always fun to read.”
