Bitter Flowers by Gunnar Staalesen (tr. by Don Bartlett) #BookReview #BlogTour

PI Varg Veum has returned to duty following a stint in rehab, but his new composure and resolution are soon threatened when a challenging assignment arrives on his desk. A man is found dead in an elite swimming pool and a young woman has gone missing. Most chillingly, Varg Veum is asked to investigate the ‘Camilla Case’: an eight-year-old cold case involving the disappearance of a little girl, who was never found. As the threads of these apparently unrelated crimes come together, against the backdrop of a series of shocking environmental crimes, Varg Veum faces the most challenging, traumatic investigation of his career. I always look forward to a new Varg Veum book, knowing I am guaranteed an engrossing, thoughtful noir thriller and I'm delighted that Orenda Books are publishing some of the earlier novels in the series. Bitter Flowers is set in 1987 and takes place a few months after the devastating events in Fallen Angels but this is an entirely separate story and so can be read
