Killed by Thomas Enger


Release Date: February 15, 2018 (UK)

Henning Juul is grieving the death of his son from a fire in their apartment in Oslo. He believes that the fire was not an accident and sets out to investigate the circumstances. Henning is a crime reporter and believes that arson was used to scare him away from his current story. He sets out to find any connections between this fire and his current case.

While investigating the fire, he feels that his life along with his associates is in constant danger. This makes it hard to trust anyone including the local police. In an interesting twist, the darker side of Oslo gets narrated from the criminal’s point of view. As the story develops, clues are revealed and all the characters eventually merge towards a dramatic conclusion.

This is the fifth and final novel in the series but can be read as a stand-alone novel. I enjoyed Killed and the escalating tension kept me engaged to the end. The release date for the book in the United States is June 2018.
