Description
In the seventh installment of the Hanne Wilhelmsen series "that demands to be read—and the more quickly, the better" (Bookreporter), the brilliant female detective must untangle the complex and bitter history of one of Oslo's wealthiest families after a celebratory get-together ends in a shocking multivictim homicide.Shortly before Christmas, four people are found shot dead at the home of the Stahlbergs, a wealthy Oslo family of shipping merchants notorious for their miserliness and infighting. Three of the victims are members of the family, and the fourth is an outsider, seemingly out of place. Cake had been set out in the living room and a bottle of champagne had been opened but not yet poured. Yes, family gatherings during the holidays can be difficult, but why did this one become a bloodbath? As Hanne Wilhelmsen investigates the case alongside her longtime police partner, Billy T., motives for the murders emerge in abundance; each surviving member of the Stahlberg family had good reason to want the victims dead. As she searches for the killer, Hanne will once again risk everything to find out the truth. But this time, will she go too far? "When you think of Scandinavian noir, names like Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, and Camilla Lackberg probably come to mind, not Anne Holt. That may be about to change....Holt consistently delivers in her series. And Beyond the Truth...is her best yet...If you aren't familiar with Anne Holt's Hanne Wilhelmsen novels...dive in with this one—number 7—but then do yourself a favor and binge-read the first six" (Entertainment Weekly).
