One of Oslo's hottest celebrity chefs is murdered and Hanne Wilhelmsen is called back into action in the sixth installment of the award-winning series from Anne Holt, Norway's best-selling crime writer. When celebrity chef Brede Ziegler is discovered stabbed to death on the steps of the Oslo police headquarters, it sends a shock wave through the city's hip in-crowd. Chef Ziegler had lots of famous associates. Could the culprit be among them, or was this a random act of violence? Police investigator Billy T. takes on the case, but he is stymied by conflicting information about what kind of man Ziegler was. It seems nobody really knew him, not even his glamorous wife, his business partner, or the editor of his memoir. While Billy T. struggles to crack the case, Hanne Wilhelmsen returns to Oslo after a six-month absence. Hanne discovers that not only had Ziegler been stabbed, but he had also ingested a lethal dose of painkillers. As the plot thickens, Hanne and Billy T. are pulled deeper into the nefarious world in which Ziegler lived. Was he who he said he was? And can those who claim to have known him best be trusted? Hanne is determined to find the truth.
