[MP3CD audiobook format in Vinyl case.]

[Read by Kate Reading]

From Edgar Award finalist Anne Holt comes the captivating third book in the series featuring the brilliant and tough police inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen, who must investigate the grisly murder of an orphanage director.

In an orphanage outside Oslo, a twelve-year-old boy is causing havoc. The institution's aging director, Agnes Vestavik, sees something chilling in Olav's eyes: sheer hatred. When Vestavik is found murdered, stabbed in the neck with a kitchen knife - with Olav nowhere to be found - the case goes to maverick investigator Hanne Wilhelmsen, recently promoted to superintendent in the Oslo police. Hanne suspects that Olav witnessed the murder and fled, and she orders an investigation of the orphanage staff. But Hanne is hopeless at delegating and sharing responsibilities. Only Hanne's supreme deductive skills keep her on the job, but this is one case where her instincts are leading her astray.

Meanwhile, Olav makes his way to his once unfit mother's apartment in central Oslo. When police finally catch up to him, Olav will lead them on a chase that will upend all of their assumptions. A dark and captivating new chapter in this brilliant, rollicking series, Death of the Demon examines that murky intersection between crime and justice.

About the Author:

ANNE HOLT has worked as a journalist and news anchor and spent two years working for the Oslo Police Department before founding her own law firm and serving as Norway's Minister for Justice for part of 1996 and 1997. Her first book was published in 1993, and her work has been translated into twenty-five languages. She lives in Oslo with her family.

From Booklist:

Hanne Wilhelmsen (Blessed Are Those Who Thirst, 2012) is back, having been recently promoted to chief investigator in Oslo’s police department. Right out of the gate, a high-profile case monopolizes the squad’s resources, leaving Hanne only a skeleton crew to investigate a foster-home director’s perplexing murder. This is all the excuse Hanne needs to abandon her ill-fitting leadership role and dive into the investigation with her friend and colleague Billy T.’s small team. It’s both concerning and intriguing that the foster home’s most troubled child, Olav, disappeared on the night of the murder. But the director’s failing marriage, new love, and a series of mysterious workplace “betrayals” also provide leads that demand attention. Hanne’s humanizing personal troubles are less evident this time, replaced by the haunting portrait of a damaged family that even love can’t keep from disaster. Always adept at balancing emotional narrative and strong suspense, Holt has crafted another must-read with this fascinating peek into a modern Sherlock’s investigative mind. --Christine Tran
