None Shall Drown opens in December 2015, half a year after the explosive revelation at the end of The Sea Cemetery. The holidays are approaching, and at the Rederhaugen estate, preparations are underway for the Falck family’s annual Christmas party. Meanwhile, in the far North of the country, tensions between Norway and Putin’s Russia are escalating.
Newly appointed SAGA Director Sasha Falck donates the rescue vessel Falck 3 to the Sea Rescue Society and pitches the idea of sending a research expedition to Svalbard. Hans Falck lies in a hospital bed in Northern Norway, gravely injured following an accident. And in Oslo, Johnny Berg receives word that a foreign agent has infiltrated SAGA. A desperate hunt for the mole ensues.
As the Falck 3 sets out for the spectacular landscapes of the High Arctic, the former Cold War enemies are about to confront each other yet again – with fateful consequences for the Falck clan.
None Shall Drown, the second installment of Aslak Nore’s bestselling adventure saga, describes an epic arc from post-World War II Europe and the restive 60s and 70s all the way to the present. It is a larger-than-life story about illicit love, dangerous political ideas, geopolitical cat-and-mouse games, bitter power struggles – and about how random encounters can change the course of not just individual lives but history itself.
