Chief Inspector Harald Sohlberg returns to the Oslo police district where his career started and almost ended in disgrace and scandal.
Although he is experienced with hardened and heartless criminals, C.I. Harald Sohlberg has never met as devious and brilliant a criminal mind as when he is called to investigate an unsolved case in Holmenkollen, one of Oslo's sleepy and boring suburbs.
C.I. Sohlberg meets his match amid the beautiful homes and gardens of Oslo's well-to-do professional class. An elementary school - Grindbakken Skole, Pilot Hill School - becomes Ground Zero for the most shocking and unforgettable of crimes.
Confronted with his own difficult and controversial past, Sohlberg must now find a missing 7-year-old boy who vanished while he was inside his school, surrounded by classmates, teachers, and parents at a science fair. The case brings back memories of Norway's worst serial predator, Lommemannen The Pocket Man, and his predecessor, The Smiley Face Killer.
The Harold Sohlberg crime novel series by Jens Amundsen joins Norway's best crime detective series, including the Inspector Konrad Sejer series by Karin Fossum, the Inspector Gunnarstranda series by K. O. Dahl, and the Detective Harry Hole series by Jo Nesbo.
Dark undercurrents of Norwegian and modern society pull this classic of Nordic noir into new and uncharted waters that are as terrifying as they are thrilling. It's time to enjoy Sohlberg and the Missing Schoolboy, the debut novel of Jens Amundsen. His novels on Chief Inspector Harald Sohlberg masterfully blend the psychological novel into the crime, suspense, thriller, and detective genre.
