Detective Harry Hole embarrassed the force, and for his sins he’s been reassigned to mundane surveillance tasks. But while monitoring neo-Nazi activities in Oslo, Hole is inadvertently drawn into a mystery with deep roots in Norway’s dark past, when members of the government willingly collaborated with Nazi Germany. More than sixty years later, this black mark won’t wash away-and disgraced old soldiers who once survived a brutal Russian winter are being murdered, one by one. Now, with only a stained and guilty conscience to guide him, an angry, alcoholic, error-prone policeman must make his way safely past the traps and mirrors of a twisted criminal mind. For a conspiracy is taking rapid and hideous shape around Hole . . . and Norway’s darkest hour may be still to come.

When you read this book, hang on tight becz facts/clues/hints accumulate rapidly along with some characters' names that seemed a little too similar to track. My problem only. Norway's history--good & bad--is revealed thru retrospection and international law enforcement effort. Not a package tied up neatly as there are lingering issues, esp re: the arms smuggler. Another character w/dual personalities who believes he's gotten away it all. Not quite. Harry's not finished by a long shot.
