It is late September, and Anna Kiehl, a student of anthropology and a single mother, does not return from her evening run in the forest. The next morning, she is found dead. She is naked, her throat is cut, and there is a bouquet of poisonous hemlock on her chest.
Police inspector Daniel Trokic is in charge of the investigation, and it leads him to the case of a prominent scientist and specialist in neurochemistry and antidepressants who disappeared eight weeks earlier. Daniel Trokic must get to the killer before he strikes again, but this turns out to be a dangerous pursuit.
Suspenseful and fast-paced. Winner of the Danish Crime Academy's Debut Award in 2006 for the most exciting debut of the year.
FROST AND ASHES
During a snowstorm, an 8 year-old boy is found dead in a stream running through a village in Denmark. He has been strangled with a fishing line and has severe burn marks on his hands.
The investigation of the killing of the boy goes in several directions.
To an old man with a dark past and a collection of beetles, to a boy with a cell phone and a guilty conscience, and to a drowning accident in the same stream thirty years ago.
Police-inspector Daniel Trokic is handling the case with his team, and while the snow is slowly melting, a terribly painful story is revealed.
In an early morning in May, the police find the heavily beaten body of Maja Nielsen in a public park in central Aarhus in Denmark.
She has fallen from a great height and her right arm has been cut repeatedly. Everything points to a suicide, and as the police dig deeper into the world of Maja, they discover a young woman plagued by paranoia and violent nightmares.
Something was tormenting her.
The investigation leads Daniel Trokic and his team to a distinct blood profile with traces of an unknown drug, a tattooed Colombian, and a particularly uncompromising animal rights activist who has been run over in a hit-and-run accident.
