(Nominated for the Edgar Award) Climbing through the northern reaches of Norway during a massive blizzard, 1222 meters above sea level, Hanne Wilhelmsen's train derails, in Anne Holt's eighth mystery featuring the paraplegic former police inspector. The bruised and bloodied passengers abandon the train for an ancient mountain hotel nearby, and think they are saved—until one of them is found dead the next morning. The crusty Hanne has no desire to get involved, but her curiosity about her fellow passengers—particularly when another one is found dead—impel her to investigate in this intriguing and entertaining locked-room puzzle from the celebrated "godmother of modern Norwegian crime fiction" (Jo Nesbø).

"It must be spooky in Scandinavia, but Holt, Norway's best-selling female crime writer and a former minister of justice, has a goofy streak that changes the tone of this beguiling book."—Washington Post

"A good old-fashioned murder mystery. Wherever Hanne shows up next, my advice is to follow that wheelchair."—NYTBR
