A compelling and cunning thriller that will keep you hooked
By Torkil Damhaug
Intense psychological crime from the Norwegian bestselling author, in the tradition of Camilla Lackberg
CERTAIN SIGNS THAT YOU ARE DEAD is the fourth psychological thriller in Torkil Damhaug's Oslo Crime Files, a tense and dark quartet for fans of Camilla Lackberg and Jo Nesbo.
Every killer leaves a trace.
In Akershus University Hospital, a patient disappears into thin air.
That evening, his body is found in a basement box-room, his throat cut.
When retired forensic pathologist Jennifer Plåterud is called in to examine the dead man, she has no idea of just how closely she is involved in the murder herself.
And in the merciless heat of summer, she will be forced to make connections she would have preferred to ignore...
