1222 metres above sea level and the worst snow storm in recent Norwegian history is raging. Marooned in a mountain pass and with night falling, 269 travellers are forced to abandon their train and decamp into a centuries-old mountain hotel. They ought to be safe from the storm here, but as dawn breaks one of them will be found dead, murdered.
In the midst of a massive blizzard, a train steaming toward Norway's far north derails-1,222 meters above sea level. The good news: there's a grand old hotel nearby, mostly empty except for staff. The bad news: one of the passengers turns up dead. On hand is retired police inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen, paralyzed from a bullet in her spine, who reluctantly starts investigating. Holt, Norway's top crime writer and its minister of justice in 1996-97, has sold over five million copies of her books in Europe. She's released two books here, and the publisher seems to be hoping for a breakout with this first in a new series. Great to consider for thriller fans, especially those who can't get enough Scandinavian fare. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
