Publisher's Summary

September 1977. Mette Misvãr, a three-year-old girl, disappears without trace from the sandpit outside her home.
Her tiny, close middle-class community in the tranquil suburb of Nordas is devastated, but their enquiries and the police produce nothing. Curtains twitch, suspicions are raised, but Mette is never found.
Almost 25 years later, as the expiry date for the statute of limitations draws near, Mette's mother approaches PI Varg Veum in a last, desperate attempt to find out what happened to her daughter. As Veum starts to dig, he uncovers an intricate web of secrets, lies and shocking events that have been methodically concealed.
When another brutal incident takes place, a pattern begins to emerge.
Chilling, shocking and full of extraordinary twists and turns, Where Roses Never Die reaffirms Gunnar Staalesen as one of the world's foremost thriller writers.

Good story, Interesting characters...Its a sequel

I wish Audible had indicated this book is a second in a series ! It was a good book anyway and the characters (especially main) were worth the time investment. Great Narrator.

Good Story with Satisfying Ending

This was a well crafted and well performed story. The Norwegian names of the characters and the fact that there were so many characters made it challenging to keep track of the plot. It would be great if Audible could put a cheat sheet on the site with the characters names and their relations to each other.

The devil is in the detail

Any additional comments?

In the physics of madness, a pebble can start a landslide. For this story, one small incident sets in motion in the mind of an insane person, a course of action which causes years of misery for so many others. What I love about this author is that there are no carelessly plotted story lines or even sentences. Even the description of shared coffee is delightful and begs to be re-read and re-examined for underlying clues. This book was my find of the year.
