Helene Flood’s third suspense novel from contemporary Oslo.
There have been several near accidents before Erling collapses on the street and dies. Alone in the large house sits Evy, his wife of forty-five years. There’s something suspicious about her husband’s death. Objects are disappearing from the house, the adult children are keeping things hidden from her, and the cellar door, which is always locked, suddenly stands ajar. An old friend from Erling’s youth reappears after many years and has something to tell. Did someone want to harm Erling? Could he have been murdered? And will the person who was after him now target Evy?
