The Iron Cross

Jon Michelet

Two neo-nazis set fire to a book shop in a Norwegian small town, causing the death of two little girls. One of the arsonists is then found dead, his face shot to pulp and an iron cross around his neck. Police officer Vilhelm Thygesen heads the investigation, but after a while he is squeezed out of the police force. Traces point to a group of Norwegian Nazis who escaped from Norway in 1947 in order to create a new existence for themselves in Argentina.

The Iron Cross was the third book to feature antihero Vilhelm Thygesen. Subtitled “A Novel against Nazism and Neonazism”, it is both of its time – and as topical today as when it first appeared.
