More About This Title The Anthill Murders
1972. Across Oslo, a serial killer is hunting down young women. Each victim found strangled and with a peculiar calling-card placed upon their bodies: a cut-out picture of an ant. The first victim is a timid theology student, the next a jazz singer, followed by the heir to one of the largest fortunes in Oslo. But despite Inspector K2's best efforts to find a link, the only thing connecting them seems to be their murder. With his assistant Patricia's intellect put to the test, and increasing pressure from his boss as the clock ticks down to the next possible killing, K2 is in danger of losing his position as Oslo's leading homicide detective.
Hans Olav Lahlum is a Norwegian crime author, historian, chess player, and politician. The K2 and Patricia books are bestsellers in Norway.
"Superlative. . . . Lahlum says this installment started as a tribute to American author Ross Macdonald, whose books focused on family tragedy, but it’s also a trenchant political novel." —Publishers Weekly starred review of The Catalyst Killing"Critics have been lining up to praise this remarkable novel from historian, chess-player and politician Hans Olav Lahlum and it's not hard to see why." —Guardian on Human Flies
