Internationally renowned author Kjell Ola Dahl has attained cult status in his home country of Norway with his sharp, riveting bestsellers. Now, with his gripping and intelligent novel "The Fourth Man," the master of Norwegian crime writing is crossing the Atlantic.
In the course of a routine police raid, Detective Inspector Frank Frolich of the Oslo Police saves Elizabeth Faremo from getting inadvertently caught in the crossfire. Some weeks later, Frolich coincidentally runs into her again--but their ensuing affair is no accident. By the time he learns that she is no stranger--but rather the sister of a wanted member of a larceny gang--it is already too late.
In the middle of one night, Frolich receives a call that a young guard has been killed in the course of a robbery. Scrambling to respond, he realizes that Elizabeth is no longer in his bed. In a turn of events cryptic, erotic, and complex, he finds himself a prime murder suspect and under the watch of his doubting colleagues. Led through the dark underworld of Oslo, Frolich must find out if he is being used . . . before his life unravels beyond repair.
"The Fourth Man "is a sexy, fast-paced psychological thriller that puts a modern twist on the classic noir story of the femme fatale. K.O. Dahl has crafted a dark, poetic, and incredibly complex crime novel for his US debut--the first in a series of detective novels from this rising international mystery star.
