With police resources needed elsewhere, Chief Inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen and Detective Billy T. are left alone to investigate when the director of Oslo’s Spring Sunshine Home is found brutally murdered. Kate Reading balances two intersecting story lines: chilling revelations from the prime suspect's mother about her son's turbulent childhood and Hanne and Billy T.'s wide-ranging investigation. Each thread builds to a startling climax. Reading is especially good at capturing the gritty and intimate dialogue, adjusting her volume and pacing to emphasize emotional urgency. Her portrayal of the 12-year-old prime suspect is piercing, yet impossible to ignore. In contrast, Reading's voice is raw with vulnerability when Hanne is forced to reconcile the demands of her personal life with her independence.
