1222 har Anne Holts mangeårige hovedperson, tidligere kriminalinspektør Hanne Wilhelsen i centrum. Hanne Wilhelmsen, som siden en dramatisk skudepisode sidst i krimien Sandheden bag sandheden (2004) har siddet i rullestol, er på vej med toget tværs over det norske fjeldlandskab. Men toget bliver afsporet, og alle passagerne må kæmpe sig vej gennem snemasserne til det eneste beboede sted i miles omkreds - et fjeldhotel, som ligger netop 1222 meter over havet. Snart efter sætter årtiets værste snestorm ind og isolerer hotellet totalt fra omverdenen, og snart sker det første mord af flere ... Fra sin plads i rullestolen i hotellets foyer observerer Hanne Wilhelmsen sine medpassagerer, deres reaktioner på isolationen, uvejret og ikke mindst hinanden, mens de forsøger at håndtere dels indbyrdes stridigheder, dels muligheden for en seriemorder i deres midte. Og så er der vedholdende rygter om en mystisk togvogn med mystiske, bevæbnede passagerer, som har skjult sig på hotellets øverste etage ... kongelige? kriminelle? terrorister?

Med et gevaldigt glimt i øjet udfolder Anne Holt hele sin skarpe sans for plot, spænding og afsløring af menneskelig svaghed - og heltemod! - midt i den hårdeste norske vinter.

Indlæst af Charlotte Munck, som er skuespiller og sangerinde. Hun er bl.a. kendt for sine roller i filmene Den eneste ene, Kongekabale og En kort, en lang. Filmrollen gav hende en Robert og en Bodil-nominering som bedste kvindelige hovedrolle. På tv har hun medvirket i Taxa, Rejseholdet og så selvfølgelig som den kvindelige politibetjent Anna Pihl i serien af samme navn.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Mesmer | 2/17/2014

    " I was mixed about this book. Didn't love it but didn't hate it. There just weren't any really likeable people. The main character was so self absorbed that she was not likeable. I guess other than the storm there wasn't really a lot of description. If you haven't read books from this series you are pretty much at a loss and scrambling to play a bit of catch-up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret Bryant | 2/14/2014

    " Not as terrifying as Agatha Christie's classic, but a good intriguing imaginative mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane S. | 1/30/2014

    " 3.5 As I was reading this book about a train derailment, with all the passengers having to stay snowed in at a hotel, I was reminded of The Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Only instead of ghosts and spirits, there is a murderer and a mysterious car that had been added to the back of the train and no one knows who was on it. I liked the main character Hanne, who had been with the police but was now paralyzed and in a wheelchair, she is kind of grumpy and very opinionated but somehow I found her very real. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 1/27/2014

    " Hanne Wilhelmsen is a terrific character and this book is a great read. Hanne is a police veteran, crippled by a bullet in her spine, on her way to consult a specialist surgeon. Her train is derailed in a Norwegian mountaintop village by a blizzard with hurricane force winds. The engineer is killed, and the passengers take refuge in a nearby resort hotel. As the storm intensifies, tempers grow short, people die and/or are killed, and Hanne is forced to bring her police experience to bear on her surroundings. The descriptions of the storm are terrifying and the passengers and hotel staff include some memorable characters. The first of Holt's previous Hanne Wilhelmsen books is due out in English later this year. I hope the rest will follow in good order. "

    " Picked up after G&M recommendation. Hard to read, awkward prose at times. Either original was like that, or was in translation. Either way - didn't make it past the page 50 cut-off/ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 1/5/2014

    " I enjoyed the interaction of the characters especially because they were confined in one area during a snowstorm. I wasn't sure even at the end whether I liked Hanne Wilhelmson but plan to read another of Anne Holt's with this character. I've already read What Never Happens by this author and thought it was great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 12/31/2013

    " A fabulous modern day version of The Murder on the Orient Express, complete with the gripping ending scene(even if you've already figured out who did it) and engaging characters. The setting was also a tremendous character in this story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gg | 12/12/2013

    " I am not sure why this was nominated for an Edgar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy Rockey | 12/7/2013

    " I really enjoyed this one & am looking forward to more of this series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri Light | 10/4/2013

    " An American debut for this author and lead character but I felt as if I were missing a great deal of the backstory. I am a stickler for reading series books in order so to me it could have been better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray | 9/3/2013

    " Overall, a good read. Decent whodunit, part of a series, starts up intriguing but ends somewhat predictable. The main character is a bit hard to like, but I ended up rooting for her anyway by the end. I'll definitely be on the lookout for more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 7/12/2013

    " Interesting mystery. Kept me wanting to come back for more. The story was good, I liked the charachters and for me it wasnt an obvious who done it, I was actually surprised but I was disappointed with the ending only because it left me with so many more questions "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 6/21/2013

    " Captivating, but not demanding. Holt deftly weaves clear and colorful imagery. An enjoyable weekend read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Seaton | 8/14/2012

    " I enjoyed reading this book while in Norway, in the mountains. It is a mystery in the Agatha Christie sense, in that all the suspects are trapped in a hotel during a storm in the Norwegian mountains. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 7/1/2011

    " Anxious to read more of her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arwindh Ravishankar | 6/23/2011

    " Very Slow start... very slow book coudnt complete reading it yet!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison | 5/16/2011

    " A Scandinavian crime story more in the tradition of Agatha Christie than Stieg Larsson. A disparate group of travellers are left stranded in a hotel when their train is derailed. Then people start dying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 2/13/2011

    " Similar to Agatha Christie but more exciting, very chilly! but got a little confused at the ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dmje | 2/6/2011

    " Felt promising quite a lot of the time but ultimately failed to go anywhere. The plotline just didn't hold up, even with lots of potential - snowed in, hotel miles from nowhere, etc etc.

    Disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsty | 1/29/2011

    " I'm a sucker for locked-room mysteries and snowy landscapes, so I loved this. The building of the atmosphere was more fun than the eventual reveal, but it's still a well-written crime story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marjet | 2/1/2010

    " I read this book in dutch and then it is called Hoogtelijn. I think it is funny written and easy to read, especially when you don't have a lot of time to read. It is about Norway so that is also nice to know more about.

    It is not really exciting and the book is bad translated.
