Product Overview

Uncovering class divisions, racial conflicts, and tangled emotions, this gritty, shocking

novel of suspense heralds the arrival of a major new talent.

Henning Juul is a veteran investigative crime reporter in Oslo, Norway. A horrific fire killed his six-year-old son, cut scars across his face, and ended his marriage, and on his first day back at the job after the terrible tragedy a body is discovered in one of the city''s public parks. A beautiful female college student has been stoned to death and buried up to her neck, her body left bloody and exposed. The brutality of the crime shakes the whole country, but despite his own recent trauma - and the fact that his ex-wife''s new boyfriend is also on the case - Henning is given the assignment. When the victim''s boyfriend, a Pakistani native, is arrested, Henning feels certain the man is innocent. This was not simply a Middle Eastern-style honor killing in the face of adultery - it was a far more complicated gesture, and one that will drag Henning into a darkness he''s never dreamed of.

Editors Note Traumatized and scarred by the fire that killed his son, Oslo crime reporter Henning Juul investigates the brutal murder of a local woman and becomes convinced that the case's chief suspect, a Pakistani native, is innocent.
Annotation Thomas Enger introduces a new player on the Scandinavian mystery scene with BURNED. Henning Juul has been on leave from the newspaper business for several years, recovering from some damaging tragedies. Returning to work for an online news source, this tried and true reporter struggles to get on board with the pace and priorities of the new "journalism" he encounters. Let's just say depth and thoroughness are not the main concerns. Hoping to gradually settle in and get his chops back, Henning is abruptly thrown back in the ring covering a disturbing and controversial murder. The victim was a young female student, and she was killed by stoning, her body found in an Oslo park. Her Muslim boyfriend immediately becomes the prime suspect by the police, but Henning believes there is more to this crime than meets the eye. Henning is a complicated, troubled, and endearing character, and Enger's story will keep readers engaged to the end.
