A Scandinavian Christmas Murder Mystery
I've just published my short story, Inspector Norse - The Yuletide Murders on Amazon and Smashwords. It's around 11,000 words and costs just 99p. Here's the blurb:
Pitching dark humour against the dark forces of Scandinavian crime, Inspector Norse follows a different path to those noble crime fighters, Wallander, Blomkvist and Lund. They get dark and sadistic killings, he faces a killer who murders his victim using the chair testing machine at the local IKEA furniture store.
As the world, and his colleagues, seem to conspire against him, Norse is plagued with phone calls; some from the killer threatening his life, and some from his mother, reminding him to wash his hands after attending to the dead bodies.
Following the discovery of another body in the store, Norse becomes aware that this might just be personal. But who would want to take revenge on an overweight and distinctly scruffy detective who left behind the dizzy heights of crime fighting in Stockholm seven years ago.
Facing a constant battle of wits and witticisms with his pathologist colleague, Bo Hägglund, can the two men collaborate for long enough to bring the killing spree to an end, or will Norse ultimately succumb to the killer's deadly intent?
