Book Review - Blessed Are Those Who Thirst by Anne Holt

"It was so early not even the devil had managed to put on his shoes. In the west, the heavens showed that intense hue only a Scandinavian sky in springtime is blessed with – royal blue on the horizon and lighter towards the meridian, before dissolving into a pink eiderdown where the sun was still lying lazily in the east. The air was invigorating, undisturbed by the dawn, with that amazing transparency possessed by radiant spring mornings at almost sixty degrees north." Inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen finds that her days do not live up to the spring promise as she is increasingly bogged down in too many cases and not enough leads to solve them. A girl is raped and her father seeks revenge, can the police solve the crime before he does? This is the second Hanne Wilhelmsen story and it is a shorter book than most contemporary crime fiction but continues the promise of the first one, with gritty characters and good plotting. Wendy
