The book that inspired the brand new Swedish TV series Modus. Johanne Vik and Adam Stubo investigate a chilling murder case in Oslo.

The silent, snow-covered streets of Oslo are a perfect scene of Christmas tranquillity. But as the bells toll for the last Sunday of Advent, a boy’s ¬≠body washes up near the shoreline of the city’s Aker Bridge. His corpse is unrecognisable. Nobody has bothered to report him missing.

One week later Eva Karin Lysgaard, the bishop of Bergen, is found stabbed to death on a deserted street. Eva is a popular public figure, a sixty-two year-old grandmother: why was she on a lone errand in the deserted city, on the night before Christmas?

Johanne Vik, criminal researcher and police profiler, is called in to untangle the motivation behind the bishop’s murder. But with her husband at the head of this increasingly high-profile investigation, Vik’s association with the case is under intense scrutiny. And why does Lysgaard’s shocking death lead her towards the sad death of an unknown boy?
