Overview

It's a cold and dark winter afternoon when a doctor knocks on detective Asbjørn Krag's door. He's worried about his patient, who has turned overnight from a cheerful, eccentric elderly gentleman into a shivering wreck. Clearly he's terrified – but can a series of minor incidents at his isolated country house really be the cause? And why won't he tell anyone what he fears?

Krag must go undercover as a guest at an isolated Norwegian mansion to try prevent a murder in its snowy grounds, and to find the secret behind the three mysterious rooms.

Sven Elvestad, who also wrote under the pseudonym Stein Riverton, was one of Norway's greatest crime writers. A journalist by training, he was the first foreign journalist to interview Adolf Hitler and was famous for stunts such as spending a day in a circus lion's cage. His first novel was published in 1907 and he went on to write nearly a hundred novels, many featuring detective Asbjørn Krag. Only a few of his works have ever been translated into English, despite enjoying widespread success across Europe. Norway's yearly Riverton prize for the best crime novel is named after him.

This new translation features an introduction by Nils Nordberg, radio drama producer and Norwegian authority on crime fiction.

"A brisk, pacey and thoroughly entertaining page-turner by one of crime fiction's unsung heroes...well worth rediscovering." – Tom Mead, author of Death and the Conjuror

"An enjoyable example of the traditional murder mystery."– Martin Edwards, novelist and author of The Life of Crime
