Sannheten bortenfor

Sannheten bortenfor Beyond The Truth

Hanne Wilhelmsen #7

Shortly before Christmas, four people are shot in Olso’s wealthiest neighborhood: three members of an affluent shipping family, and one unknown man. While her colleagues are busy digging up dirty family secrets, Hanne Wilhelmsen looks into the life of a non-descript consultant.

Beyond The Truth is the seventh installment in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series.

Reviews

  • “Holt — dubbed “the godmother of Norwegian crime fiction” by Jo Nesbø — consistently delivers in her series. And Beyond the Truth, the seventh novel to star brilliantly but emotionally damaged Oslo detective Hanne Wilhelmsen, is her best yet. Watching Hanne pick through the strands of a complex quadruple homicide is fascinating, but watching her grapple with personal relationships is absolutely gutting. This is a character who’s going to get in your hand — and stay there.”

    Entertainment Weekly, USA

  • “Jo Nesbø has called Holt “the godmother of Norwegian crime fiction.” If you aren’t familiar with her Hanne Wilhelmsen novels, it’s okay to dive in with this one — No. 7 — but then do yourself a favor and binge-read the first six.”

    Entertainment Weekly Fall Books Preview, USA

  • “What else to do, but to express one’s gratitude; this is crime fiction of the highest rank.”

    Dagbladet, Sweden

  • “She has an ability to build an intrigue of world-class quality.”

    Eskilstuna-Kuriren, Sweden

  • “Now that Hanne Wilhelmsen is back, Anne Holt manages to both keep the series going in a good way, as well as adding dimensions and depth.”

    Skånska Dagbladet, Sweden

  • “It is impossible not to be affected when reading Anne Holt. She has a narrative talent rarely seen in the genre, and it is fascinating to gradually get to know the character Hanne Wilhelmsen better and better.”

    Vestmanlands Läns Tidning, Sweden

  • “Anne Holt has a talent for depicting people in a penetrating and real manner; her sense of style is unerring and dexterous, and you quickly turn the pages.”

    Kristianstadsbladet, Sweden

  • “I enjoy Anne Holt’s writing. She writes suspensefully at just the right moments and knows when it is time to calm down. Even the mundane glows.”

    Nordvästra Skånes Tidningar, Sweden

  • “An accomplished crime novel of great caliber”

    Aftenposten, Norway
