Deep Fjord is the author’s masterly debut as a thriller writer, surprising, well-written and gripping. The majestic Norwegian landscape creates a beautiful and chilling backdrop to the story. Clara is a sharp and intelligent blue-eyed heroine, an ambitious outsider from Western Norway who has landed an influential position at the Ministry of Justice. Haavard, her husband, is from a wealthy family of lawyers, and the first to become a doctor.
When a double homicide strikes Oslo, both Clara and Haavard find themselves unwillingly entangled. Both victims had immigrant backgrounds, stirring up a national debate that reaches all the way to the Minister of Justice’s office. With Haavard present at both murder scenes, Clara’s work and family life are clashing and unravelling. Deep Fjord shifts elegantly between Clara and Haavard’s viewpoints, between intrigues in the corridors of power and an increasingly debilitated home life. Who are they? How well do they know one another?
