9780099449263: The Butterfly Effect

It is a cold, dark, windy night in Oslo and Igi Heitmann pores over the debris in her dead father's office, trying to piece together the last days of his life as a failed private eye. She discovers a curious butterfly medallion in his desk - which in turn leads to the discovery of a young woman in a snow-drift, two bullets in her head and a gun in her hand. Igi's father and the young woman died within hours of each other - is the same person responsible for both their deaths? Igi soon finds herself in the role of detective, on a trail that leads to the city's underworld of corruption, sadism and child abuse. Caught amongst the shards of a dozen shattered lives, she must tread carefully if she is to reconstruct the violent and tragic truth, and not be killed in the process.

About the Author:

Pernille Rygg was born in 1963. She has studied history and ethnology, for several years worked as a set painter for film companies and for the Norwegian Broadcasting Company. She is also author of The Golden Section.

From Publishers Weekly:

In a wintry Scandinavian landscape, a restless young woman scientist estranged from a wealthy parent gets involved in the investigation of the death of someone close to her. No, it's not Smilla's Sense of Snow, but Norwegian Rygg has written an equally atmospheric (and derivative) first novel. Igi Heitmann is a researcher trying to link psychology with chaos theory when her father--a former policeman now working as a PI in Oslo--is killed by a hit-and-run driver. Clearing out his seedy office, Igi finds a butterfly pendant and the address of a young woman, whose body, including two bullets in her skull, turns up in a mound of plowed snow. In a burning suburban church, Igi discovers the body of another woman, long missing. Are the three deaths connected? Does it snow in Norway? Aided and/or hindered by a loving transvestite husband, a simpering mother now married to a rich lawyer and her father's former police partner, the dour but dauntless Igi uncovers a web of child abuse, Satanic worship, parental misconduct and psychological flummery that signal the influences of Ross Macdonald and Raymond Chandler, as well as Peter HYeg. Veteran Ingmar Bergman translator Joan Tate's English version makes Rygg's present-tense tale move briskly, giving a distinctive voice to the life and crimes of another country not our own.
