Wolves at the Door

1 Mins read

Gunnar Staalesen’s beleaguered PI Varg Veum is a perennial Nordic noir favourite and here the world-weary Norwegian PI is on another thankless mission. Escaping a frame-job for paedophila, Varg struggles to keep his relationship afloat when members of the same paedophile ring start turning up dead. Varg investigates in his own dime and almost becomes the next victim. Is it a vigilante or a member of the ring itself? Menaced and beaten, he is none the wiser except that each victim was called on by a mysterious pastor. Before the wolves close in, will Varg solve the case? Of course he will, but to great personal cost as usual. Read our full review here.
