- Her tiny, close middle-class community in the tranquil suburb of Nordas is devastated, but their enquiries and the police produce nothing. Curtains twitch, suspicions are raised, but Mette is never found.
- Almost 25 years later, as the expiry date for the statute of limitations draws near, Mette’s mother approaches PI Varg Veum in a last, desperate attempt to find out what happened to her daughter. As Veum starts to dig, he uncovers an intricate web of secrets, lies and shocking events that have been methodically concealed.
- When another brutal incident takes place, a pattern begins to emerge.
- Chilling, shocking and full of extraordinary twists and turns, Where Roses Never Die reaffirms Gunnar Staalesen as one of the world’s foremost thriller writers.
Check Out What Readers Said about Kindle/eBook!
“As you may be aware, I have a habit at the moment of coming to a series several books in. I tend to start with book two or (heaven forbid!) book six. I think this book and it’s beleaguered lead, PI Varg Veum, takes the biscuit though. Gunnar Staalesen has been writing about Veum since 1977! Granted, only a handful of his novels have been translated from their original Norwegian to English, but I intend to hunt down every single one of them!” By damppebbles
“According to Goodreads, this is the eighteenth of the Varg Veum detective mystery novels, but it is only the first that I have read. At least six are available in English translations. This one can be enjoyed without having read the previous books. Based on this novel I will probably read more of Staalesen’s books.” By Sverre Svendsen
