Two women are found murdered in Oslo, both have drowned in their own blood. The mystery is that the serious injuries on the faces of the dead have been inflicted from the inside of the mouth.
The police woman Kaja Solness from Oslo Violence-section is sent to Hong Kong to find the man who is their only hope, a specialist on serial murders: Harry Hole. He is hiding somewhere in the city of seven million, on the run from the demons from his last murder case: The Snowman.The writer Jon Nesbø has kept me busy the first days of this year due to my Christmas gift: his eighth novel featuring Harry Hole,"Panserhjerte" (Armour Heart).Although parts of the novel take place in the areas around Ustaoset and the mountain range Hallingskarvet with late Arne Næss´ cottage "Tverrgastein" on top of the hill, we also share his present at Victoria Peak in Hong Kong.This photo is from January 1996 so much are different, but the view from Mount Austin or The Peak and Hong Kong Island towards Kowloon and the Mainland is still magnificent.
See you in Shanghai, Harry.
