Creepy, atmospheric and darkly comic - C. J. Tudor
Bakkeid is already big and his work is only going to get bigger and better Daily Record

Disgraced, damaged former police officer Thorkild Aske has stopped taking his painkillers after his last experience searching for the missing in northern Norway. Wracked by withdrawal and desperate for work, he reluctantly agrees to investigate the disappearance of two schoolgirls for bestselling crime writer Milla Lind - but he soon discovers that Lind's interest in the case is not, as she claims, simply research for her latest novel.

When Thorkild discovers that her previous investigator was murdered on the job, no-one will explain why - all he has to go on are files about unrelated cases from all across Norway. Oh, and his ex-wife wants to talk. What could possibly go wrong?

Praise for the Thorkild Aske series:
'Stephen King has got himself a Norwegian crime heir' - Ekstra Bladet
'Wonderfully creepy' - Daily Mail
'A gripping, atmospheric novel and a first outing for Aske. More are promised - I can't wait' - Saga
'At a stroke, Bakkeid has entered the upper echelons of Norwegian crime writing' - Barry Forshaw

 
 

Review

The excellent and original prose elevates this novel far above many others of the same genre. A particularly well-executed plot holds the reader captive during this entertaining and thrilling piece of crime fiction -- 2018 Riverton Prize judges

Wonderfully built story-world - atmospheric, dark, pleasantly twisted. A fast-moving midnight train from Oslo to the deepest fjords of the human mind -- Antti Tuomainen, author of Little Siberia

Atmospheric - Crime Monthly

I loved Heine Bakkeid's first novel - I Will Miss You Tomorrow - and Scatter Her Ashes continues in the same creepy, atmospheric and darkly comic way -- C. J. Tudor

The first thing I noticed when reading Bakkeid's work is how snappy, darkly funny and addictive it is. He has such a skill of sucking you in, shocking you and entertaining you all in one chapter. No wonder he's being showered with rave reviews from authors and readers across the globe. I felt such a mixture of emotions for the character of Thorkild Aske, and that's all down to his creator, who nails characters to a tee. . Bakkeid is already big and his work is only going to get bigger and better. - Daily Record

Book Description
