The owl always hunts at night
The Owl Always Hunts At Night
15 August 2016
Doubleday - RRP $37.00
The second dark and twisted
Norwegian crime thriller from Samuel Bjork — a Scandinavian bestseller
a young woman is found dead, the police are quick to respond.
But what they find at the scene is unexpected. The body is posed, the scene
laboriously set. And there is almost no forensic evidence to be found.
Detective Mia Krüger has been signed off work pending psychological assessment. But her boss has less regard for the rules than he should.
Desperate to get Mia back in the office, Holger Munch offers her an unofficial
deal. But the usually brilliant Mia is struggling and the team are unable to
close the case. Until a young hacker uncovers something that forces
the team to confront the scope of the murderer’s plans and face the possibility
that he may already be on the hunt for a second victim.
