Mandela-effekten The Mandela Effect
Selma Falck #3
Selma Falck is unprepared as her get-together with friends is suddenly transformed into a murder scene. A sniper fires a single shot, hitting her old friend Linda Bruseth in the head and injuring Selma. Linda’s relative anonymity as a little known parliament representative lead the press and the police to speculate that the real target of the assassination was Selma. She initially sees no reason to doubt them.
But closer investigation by the police soon undermines the theory, and it now stands clear that a member of parliament has been killed on the open street. When a Supreme Court judge is then found hanged, and a member of the government dies under mysterious circumstances, Selma senses a pattern in both the choice of victims and murder methods. In her search for answers, she stumbles across an apparent chaos of power abuse, conspiracies and personal tragedies. And not least, an ice cold vengeance that seems impossible to stop.
“Also this time, Anne Holt dazzles with a great societal perspective in a story about bizarre murders in Oslo […] a remarkable story.”
“Norway’s queen of crime has written a very suspenseful and topical novel. /…/ As usual, Anne Holt tackles current issues which she ingeniously weaves into fiction.”
“When it comes to crime novels with courage and substance, there are few in this country that reach the same level as Anne Holt. Where parts of the crime genre have fallen to simple and superficial entertainment with shock effects, Holt has continued to shed light on important societal topics. Her novels are time documents. You can’t open a book by Anne Holt without receiving a solid dose of reflection on the society we live in. In The Mandela Effect, the trust in authorities is at stake. Holt describes how fragile society will be if that trust is broken, and what significance it can have in cases such as the NAV scandal, or if, for example, a pandemic hit. Once again, she is strikingly relevant.”
“Norway’s most interesting crime author.”
