"Police Inspector Odd Singsaker has been captured, imprisoned on an island off the Northern coast of Norway. He wakes to find himself holding a shotgun. Next to him is a corpse. But what events led him to this point? And how did he get here? A few weeks earlier, Felicia, his wife, disappeared. Though he didn't know it, she was trying to find her way back to Odd to reconcile, but then she vanished into a snowstorm. Possibly involved is a corrupt, coldblooded cop from Oslo, a devious college student who's stolen a great deal of cocaine from drug dealers, and a hit man hired by the drug dealers who have been robbed. All of these lives intersect with Odd's as he searches for Felicia."--

This is #3 of series so far by Norwegian author Jorgen Brekke about Chief Inspector Odd Singsker which I found very interesting in that it combined several crimes all rolled into one at the end. Actually, the ending indicated that #4 will continue the series.

I read this not having read any of the previous novels. It was pretty fast paced and an engaging read. I wasn't very happy with the ending. But it does leave it open for another novel which I suspect is what the author wanted. I think I liked the characters enough to read the book, but I still am astonished by the ending. The ending might actually ruin the book.
