Book 1: SKYGGEJAKTEN (working title: Hunting shadows)

The book revolves around a case where the paranoid and schizophrenic scrap dealer Ingolf Holgersen apparently killed his own maid.

Because of his condition, it is difficult, if not impossible, to prove what happened, and Ole Vik has an intriguing case in front of him. The case will turn out to throw suspicion on employees in his own staff, which gets Vik to start doubting whom he surrounds himself with.
