"From the internationally acclaimed author of the Harry Hole novels--a new, electrifying stand-alone thriller set in Oslo in the 1970s: the story of an unusually complicated contract killer--the perfectly sympathetic antihero--that is, as well, an edgy, almost lyrical meditation on death and love. This is the story of Olav: an extremely talented "fixer" whose unexpected capacity for love is as far-reaching as his talent for murder. He works for Oslo's crime kingpin, "fixing" anyone who causes him trouble. But it's becoming clear to Olav that the more you know about your boss's business, the more your boss might want you fixed yourself, especially if you've fallen in love with his wife..."--

Olav is a soft-hearted criminal limited by his skills; the only thing he's got any talent for is "fixing" problems -- which means killing people at the request of his heroin kingpin boss. Unfortunately, he's been assigned to kill his boss' wife...and whether he does or doesn't, he's in the dangerous position of knowing rather too much about his employer. And that's before he falls in love with his target. Set in Oslo in the 1970s, this "jewel of a novel" (Booklist) was followed by Midnight Sun, which shares its setting.
