The book just not centres in one investigation, there are more fires to extinguish and Gunnarstranda and Frølich will have to centre their forces to discover the truth before is too late...
This is the seventh book of the Oslo Detectives Series, you can read it as standalone, but there are a few links that you miss while you are reading the book. I have started the series in this book, so I don't have a strong connection with the main characters, but I am quite curious of how the next book will continue after the surprising finish of this one... I can just guess a few situations...!
This is a noir crime book, with very detailed police procedure, some very peculiar group of detectives and a killer to guess untill the end of the book!
