Publisher Description

The final nail-biting installment in the ten-part, award-winning Hanne Wilhelmsen series from Scandinavia’s most celebrated female crime writer, Anne Holt

In 2001, three-year-old Dina is killed in a tragic car accident. Not long thereafter Dina’s mother dies under mysterious circumstances, and Dina’s father Jonas is convicted of her murder.

Now it’s 2016, and the cold case ends up on the desk of Detective Henrik Holme, who tries to convince his mentor Hanne Wilhelmsen that Jonas might have been wrongly convicted. Holme and Wilhelmsen discover that the case could be connected to the suicide of an eccentric blogger, as well as the kidnapping of the grandson of a EuroJackpot millionaire.

Twenty-four years in the writing, the ten books in Anne Holt’s internationally bestselling series is now complete. “Hanne is a character who’s going to get in your head—and stay there” (Entertainment Weekly). In Dust and Ashes is the exciting, not-to-be-missed conclusion to this terrific series.

“In this tenth and final book in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series, Wilhelmsen is as intuitive, and prickly, as ever, as Holt explores further the relationship between Wilhelmsen and Holme. For fans of Jo Nesbø, who has noted Holt’s primacy in Norwegian crime fiction, and of the genre in general.”

— Booklist 


  • “Kate Reading’s performance is elegant, cool, and beautifully responsive to the text…There’s no need to have read earlier installments to understand or relish the plot, in which apparently unrelated tragedies…converge for a nerve-shredding climax. Nordic noir at its best.”

    — AudioFile
  • “Offers more than a tricky plot. There is also fascination in seeing Ms. Holt enter the minds of characters troubled and admirable alike.”

    — Wall Street Journal
  • “Sharp characterization, brilliant plotting, and a pair of puzzling mysteries, all of which play out against the background ticking of a loud plot. It seems that author Anne Holt (with an assist in the form of a fine translation by Anne Bruce) has saved the very best for last.”

    — BookReporter
  • “For Hanne and Henrik, both convincing complex characters, all suffering comes down to the ‘good old sins’: money, sex, and revenge. Readers will be sorry to see the last of them.”

    — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “This tenth and final book in this bestselling Norwegian series is perhaps one of the best. Holt is an expert at creating multifaceted characters and riveting fast-paced crime novels.”

    — Library Journal (starred review)
  • “Holt closes her series with one of its strongest entries, combining a generous sensitivity to all with an unblinking portrait of a franchise sleuth who, pressed to defend the corners she’s cut, acknowledges, ‘I’ve become more pragmatic with age.’”

    — Kirkus Reviews
