The thrilling new novel in the bestselling Commandant Servaz series.

When a body is found in a church in the far north of Norway, the trail leads to an offshore oil rig. Searching the rooms of one of the rig workers, detective Kirsten Nigaard finds a pile of photos taken with a long-lens camera. The subject of the photos is Martin Servaz. And someone has been watching him.

Signs suggest the killer is none other than Julian Hirtmann, a serial murderer on the run. Martin, after all, has a long and painful history with Hirtmann. Now it seems he has struck again.

Their one clue is in amongst the photos. A picture of a young boy in a beautiful Austrian village, and on the back of it, the name 'Gustav'. Martin and Kirsten set off on the trail and soon find themselves in a terrifying cat-and-mouse chase, not knowing who is chasing whom, and which of them might pay the ultimate price.

Praise for Bernard Minier 'Over the past few years, France has produced some of Europe's most striking and original crime novelists. Bernard Minier is up there with the best' - The Sunday Times 'A super-accelerated version of a Hitchcock thriller, with thrills and shocks on nearly every page...

Minier reels out lurid, quick and dirty prose, dirty enough to blacken the fingers as we read' - Spectator

He has twice won the prestigious Prix Polar at the Cognac Crime Festival.


Praise for Bernard Minier - - A publishing sensation in France . . . With a villain possessing the intelligence of Thomas Harris's immortal Hannibal Lecter, this is great story-telling, with a creeping sense of dread that would not disgrace Stephen King at his best - Daily Mail on The Frozen Dead Bernard Minier's second novel A SONG FOR DROWNED SOULS confirms his status in the forefront of crime fiction's French renaissance . . . A gripping read - The Times A super-accelerated version of a Hitchcock thriller, with thrills and shocks on nearly every page - Spectator on Don't Turn Out the Lights
