Summary

In this crime drama, detective Varg Veum's adventures take him into the world of privileged teenage girls who have been drawn into drugs and prostitution.

The situation worsens when the local judge is found dead in a luxury hotel, clad only in women's lingerie. Called in by anxious parents to look for a missing daughter and explain the judge's death, Varg is led deep into Bergen's criminal underworld.

Interesting twist

Story is pretty good with an interesting twist.
Narration is a touch bizarre with strange northern English accents instead of Norwegian

another excellent book by Gunnar Staalesen with narration by Colin Mace

realistic characters, sustained suspense, good sense of place and time. hard to put down, great revealing of the ending without a big wrap it up to explain what happened
