Has the brains of a literary novel and the body of a thriller' The New York Times'Miller joins the ranks of Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, and Jo Nesbo, the holy trinity of Scandinavian crime novelists.' Booklist______________________________________________A former Marine sniper and a newly orphaned boy race across the Norwegian wilderness, fleeing demons both real and imagined. Sheldon Horowitz-widowed, impatient, impertinent-has grudgingly agreed to leave New York and move in with his granddaughter, Rhea, and her new husband, Lars, in Norway-a country of blue and ice, not the place for a former Marine sniper in the Korean War turned watch repairman. Not until now, anyway. Home alone one morning, Sheldon witnesses a dispute between the woman who lives upstairs and an aggressive stranger. When events turn dire, Sheldon seizes and shields the neighbor's young son from the violence, and they flee the scene. As Sheldon and the boy look for a safe haven in an alien world, past and present weave together, forcing them ever forward to a wrenching moment of truth. ______________________________Acclaim for Norwegian by NightBest New Crime Writer of the Year, Crime Writers AssociationBest of 2013, The GuardianBest of 2013, Financial TimesBest of 2013, The EconomistBest of Crime 2013, Kirkus
