Anne Holt - Scandinavian noir novelist

Published by Supertortuga on 2017-02-26
Having served as Minister of Justice in Norway, no one can understand better how truly dark it gets in Scandinavia than Anne Holt.

Anne Holt. Anne Holt has a solid background in the legal environment - she has a law degree, has worked in the Oslo Police Department, as a journalist and during a shorter period she even served as Minister of Justice of Norway. This probably explains why she masters this gendre, being one one the most popular crime novelists in Norway, with her works being published in more than 25 countries.

The first book by Holt I read was "1222", which was a refreshing experience, introducing me to the world of the heroines Hanne Wilhelmsen and Inger johanne Vik.

Books in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series - original Norwegian title, year (English title):

Books in the The Vik/Stubø series - original Norwegian title, year:
