Police officer Alexander Blix and celebrity blogger Emma Ramm join forces to track down a serial killer with a thirst for attention and high-profile murders, in the first episode of a gripping new Nordic Noir series.... 

Oslo, 2018. Former long-distance runner Sonja Nordstrøm never shows at the launch of her controversial autobiography, Always Number One. When celebrity blogger Emma Ramm visits Nordstrøm’s home later that day, she finds the door unlocked and signs of a struggle inside. A bib with the number one has been pinned to the TV.  

Police officer Alexander Blix is appointed to head up the missing-persons investigation, but he still bears the emotional scars of a hostage situation 19 years earlier, when he killed the father of a five-year-old girl.

Traces of Nordstrøm soon show up at different locations, but the appearance of the clues appear to be carefully calculated...evidence of a bigger picture that he’s just not seeing.... 

Blix and Ramm soon join forces, determined to find and stop a merciless killer with a flare for the dramatic and thirst for attention. Trouble is, he’s just got his first taste of it....

A devious and suspenseful mystery

“Death Deserved” is a complicated, although entertaining, book worth every twist, turn and surprise {{{jaw-dropping moment}}}. Following an investigation into a missing person’s case, connected to a series of murders, authors Thomas Enger and Jorn Lier Horst do an outstanding job introducing us to interesting and nefarious characters along the way. Being a fan of talented narrator James Lailey, he once again proves his perfection of narration. One of my pet peeves: I wish more would read the book. Stop changing voice levels trying to imitate characters. It is quite distracting. Just READ the book. Tell the story and Lailey does just that to perfection. I can think of quite a few narrators who could learn from him. NOTE: A poor narrator can ruin a great audiobook. Highly recommended! Worth the $8.99 I paid. I never use a credit on audiobooks $10 and under. I pay for them. I save my treasured credits for higher priced books.

This isnt a great read but it holds the reader's interest. The small small clues are drizzled before us but leave room for surprises. It morphs into a low gore horror book. Good for a bitterly cold winter read :-)

Good, but not as good as the Wisting books

Good pace. Sometimes cliche killer. Workaholic investigator. No subplots. Maybe a good story for tv.
