Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published in Norwegian in 1997 as Løvens Gap"--Title page verso.
Summary, etc.: "Less than six months after taking office, the Norwegian Prime Minister is found dead. She has been shot in the head. But was it a politically motivated assassination or personal revenge? Hanne Wilhelmsen, Chief Inspector of the Norwegian Police, is on leave in California but when the death shakes the country to its core, she knows she can't remain on the sidelines of such a crucial investigation. The hunt for the Prime Minister's killer is complicated, intense, and grueling. When secrets begin to unravel from the Prime Minister's past, Hanne and her partner, Billy T., must piece together the crime before a private tragedy becomes a public outcry, in what will become the most sensitive case of their career. Filled with lies, deception, and the truth about government, The Lion's Mouth questions who truly holds the power in Norway, and how far they will go to keep it"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* A massive investigation is launched when Norwegian Prime Minister Brigitte Volter is found shot in the head in her office in 1997. The murder weapon is missing, as is the scarf she was wearing, an enameled pillbox that had been on her desk, and her security pass. As speculation mounts about whether the crime was political or personal, Billy T. is sorely missing his partner, Norwegian Police Chief Inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen, who's on sabbatical in California—but then, intrigued by the case, she returns to Norway and shows up on his doorstep. Chief Justice Benjamin Grinde, a childhood friend of Volter's and head of a commission looking into an increase in infant deaths decades earlier, was the last to see the prime minister alive; briefly a suspect, he commits suicide days later. But Billy T. is focused instead on a security guard who turns out to be linked to a right-wing conspiracy, while the intuitive Hanne's instincts prove right. Edgar-nominee Holt details the politics of the time, effects of Volter's death, painstaking police work, and press coverage of the entire situation, gradually revealing some stunning secrets. A fine addition to a noteworthy series, spotlighting a politically sensitive case in the broader context of Norwegian society. A natural for Jo Nesbø readers. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
