In una bella mattina di sole, sulle sponde del fiordo a sud di Oslo, viene trovato il cadavere di un'adolescente. È nuda, magrissima, distesa su un letto di piume. Intorno a lei una schiera di candele disposte a formare una stella a cinque punte. Non appena si trova davanti questa scena, Holger Munch, il capo dell'unità speciale incaricata di risolvere i delitti più efferati e misteriosi, sa di non avere scelta: dovrà rivolgersi a Mia Krüger. Mia però è fuori dalla squadra: i dirigenti della polizia norvegese continuano a ritenerla troppo instabile per affidarle nuovi casi. Ma Holger Munch sa che solo Mia può interpretare il rituale di cui è caduta vittima la ragazza e impedire che chi l’ha sacrificata colpisca ancora. E, a costo di inimicarsi i suoi superiori, la richiama nella sua squadra. Inizia così un’incalzante caccia all’uomo...

This is dark and bleak Nordic noir set in Norway. It is the second in the Holger Munch and Mia Kruger series and the first I have read. It works reasonably well as a standalone.

I’m trying to be a bit selective with the crime series I follow. To only commit to those that start particularly strongly and then, to at least get beyond the first novel! Hence, The Owl Always Hunts At Night, the second book by Samuel Bjork featuring detectives Munch and Krüger. I thoroughly enjoye Leggi tutto
Police detective Mia Kruger is too much of a basket case in this sequel. Way over the top...Bjork’s first in the series was better. 3 out of 5 stars
"The Owl Always Hunts At Night" by Simon Bjork is the second in the Nordic Noir 'Munch/Kruger' police procedural series set in Norway and is a decent thriller and certainly worth a read.

I literally just finished this book and guys, it was disturbing. Even sick in a way. It was like watching a really good episode of Criminal Minds, but only with many more characters. In fact, there were so many characters, that I had hard time keeping up with all of them. I'm telling you, if this novel Leggi tutto

Το δεύτερο βιβλίο του Samuel Bjørk με τη Μία και το Χόλγκερ έχει μια ιστορία που σε ρουφάει με την επιβλητική της ατμόσφαιρα. Η εξέλιξη της είναι ικανοποιητική και από ένα σημείο και μετά υπάρχουν συνεχείς ανατροπές και καταιγισμός εξελίξεων. Σαφέστατα πολύ καλύτερο από το πρώτο βιβλίο της σειράς. 3,5* Leggi tutto
