Salige er de som tørster Blessed are Those who Thirst
Hanne Wilhelmsen #2
In this thrilling story of rape and revenge, Hanne Wilhelmsen races against the clock to prevent the privatization of justice. How does our society treat individuals such as rape victims and refugees? The novel delves into the nature of powerlessness – the powerlessness of immigrants confronting an immigration officer, the powerlessness of a rape victim confronting her aggressor.
Blessed are Those who Thirst is the second installment in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series.
In 1997, Blessed are Those who Thirst became a motion picture directed by Carl Jørgen Kiønig.
“Fast-paced and involving /…/ Holt knows psychology as well as she knows the ins and outs of police-work. She quickly draws the reader into the minds and lives of half a dozen disparate characters — none more interesting than Inspector Wilhelmsen herself… Holt’s visions of societal and ethical decay are balanced by glimpses of great poignancy, human consolation and love.”
“A wonderful combination of old-school police procedure and amateur detective work /…/ Holt is a master of balancing criminal procedure with suspense /…/ This is a series that demands to be read, and the more quickly the better.”
“A perfect entry point into Scandinavian crime /…/ A sure pleasure for police-procedural fans who read everything from Slaughter to Nesbo.”
“Anne Holt goes from strength to strength.”
“Exuberant and suspenseful”
