Editorial Reviews


Praise for Lethal Investments:

"Series fans will relish the opportunity to see these two unorthodox sleuths work their magic together." --Publishers Weekly

International Praise for K.O. Dahl and the Oslo Detectives Series

"The new king of detective stories. He is the next Henning Mankell.” —Max (Germany)

"In a league of his own." —Aftenposten (Norway)


“Dahl is the shining star of the genre.” –Hamar Arbeiderblad (Norway)

“Dahl is a formidable talent.” —Booklist


“I have read many clever and thrilling crime novels through my life, but often they have nothing to do with real life. If I don’t believe in them, they don’t impress me. But when K.O. Dahl tells his stories, I believe every single word.” –Karin Fossum, author of Bad Intentions

 “Gunnarstranda and Frølich rely on old-fashioned interview techniques, dogged comparisons of stories and time lines, to unravel the lies in a whodunit full of psychological insights.” –Publishers Weekly on The Last Fix

“An absorbing study of sexual enthrallment, dogged police work and a harrowing twist or two: Fans of procedurals…will snap this one up.” –Kirkus, on The Fourth Man

About the Author

Critics around the world have labeled K.O. DAHL as Norway’s answer to Henning Mankell.  He has been awarded with the Riverton Prize for Best Norwegian Crime Novel of the Year, and has been nominated for Glasnyckeln (The Glass Key), Brage Literary Prize and the Martin Beck Award.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ray J. Palen Jr. VINE VOICE on December 16, 2012
Format: Hardcover
These days, every single crime and thriller writer emerging from the desolate tundra known as Scandinavia owes a debt of thanks to the late Stieg Larsson. If not for the incredible international success (posthumously) of his GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO trilogy Western readers might never have been introduced to terrific talents like Henning Mankell, Jo Nesbo, Camilla Lackberg and Anne Holt.

Seeking to add his name to this growing list is Norwegian author, K.O. Dahl. He has already won a handful of literary awards in his home country and now is attempting to breakthrough to American readers. LETHAL INVESTMENTS is actually the fourth novel in the series that features Inspectors Frolich and Gunnarstranda.

Set primarily in the Norwegian capital of Oslo, this novel is not set against a cold and mysterious phone call at her apartment where no one appears to be on the other end of the line. Shortly thereafter, her dead body is spotted through her slightly ajar apartment door by the child of her neighbors.

Just prior to being killed she had spent the evening with a young man named Sigurd. Once they learn of his existence, Frolich and Gunnarstranda immediately push him to the top of their list for potential suspects. After questioning him and detaining him they have no choice but to let him go until they can produce more evidence. This becomes complicated when the body of Sigurd is found with his throat brutally slashed.

Frolich and Gunnarstranda now realize that the pair was murdered because of something they knew or may have seen in Reidun's apartment. This leads them to Reidun's place of business --- a highly suspicious and sparsely populated software company aptly named, Software Partners.
