Detective Karen Eiken Hornby is back!

Two murders, only a day apart, shake the island nation of Doggerland. Both victims are young and found dead in the capital city, Dunker.

Karen Eiken Hornby is enjoying her maternity leave and is less than pleased at being called back into service to investigate the case. She’s especially reluctant at having to collaborate with the tight-lipped Astrid Nielsen, whose refusal to say why she quit her last job raises Karen’s suspicions. But soon after the investigation gets underway, they start to suspect that the two deaths are connected.

The pressing question is if there are more victims to come? Who is behind the murders, and why? Soon, Karen realises that someone is keeping a watchful eye on all her movements. The new mother must solve the case while at the same time protecting her child.

DOWNBURST is the fifth book in the internationally bestselling series featuring Detective Karen Eiken Hornby within the unique setting of Maria Adolfsson’s imaginary Doggerland islands, featuring its own local language, geography, and cultural traditions with roots in Britain and Scandinavia—the ideal setting for a Nordic Noir series with a twist.
