About the book
The Odense Series is a new Nordic Noir/Brit Crime series that blends humanist stories and family drama with gritty crime in the central Danish city Odense.

British detective Simon Weller escapes the fallout from the recent suicide of his Danish wife, Vibeke and heads out to her home city of Odense. But once there he is paired up with a local detective, Jonas, who is also about to hit rock bottom in his home life and they must overcome their differences and personal problems to try and catch one of the worst serial killers Odense has seen in many years.

The case takes them back into past decades as history starts catching up with some of the local inhabitants.

When Simon realises that his wife’s suicide may not be all it seems and her name appears in the case, his integrity within the case is compromised, how far will he go to find out the truth of Vibeke’s past and hide it from his already troubled police partner?

Back home in London Simon’s family are struggling with their own web of lies and deceit and the family is falling apart.

With one family hiding a dark secret, the whole case is just about to reach breaking point.

  1. I am certainly new to Nordic Noir, but coupled with Brit Crime yes please!!Sounds intriguing.

  2. Might have take this one to sea!!! Please chose me, it's often dull down there!

  3. Thanks Susan, no doubt it's dark too? Perhaps even an absence of presence? LOL, thanks for entering and good luck.

  4. I love crime novels, particularly UK, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish. It's great to be transported to places I've never been and feel the bite of an arctic wind, languish in the long summer nights of a midnight sun, taste and smell the infamous herring.
    I'm intrigued to read this book and have my fingers crossed.

  5. Thanks so much Pam, sounds like this book is definitely for you :-)
