In the small town of Grenå, once the murders start, no one knows who to trust....
Ex-convict Peter Boutrup is trying to build a new life. But then a young woman goes missing on New Year's Eve, and Peter discovers the body of Ramses, an old acquaintance from prison, on the beach.
When a woman is found in the harbour - naked, attached to an anchor with her face torn off - Peter must accept that the truth lies hidden in the past he is trying to forget.
Populated by a cast of characters from the underbelly of Danish society, Three Dog Night is a fast-paced thriller that paints a picture of a rarely seen side of Denmark.

"Thrilling and brutal." (Ekstra Bladet)
"A highly recommended, bleak and captivating crime novel." (Information)
This book is the best thing I've read since Stieg Larsson. It has complex characters inhabiting the fringes of society, an intriguing plot and is well written and translated. The narration is faultless. I did not want this to end and I sincerely hope that Audible will quickly publish the remaining books written by the outstanding Elsebeth Egholm.
I discovered that Ms Egholm was married to AJ Quinnell another author which Audible could do well to publish - ideally narrated by Sean Barrett!
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and narration. The characters kept me engaged all then way through without turning into stereotypes. I will look forward to listening to her next offering.
