As part of the Oslo detective series, Faithless is the 7th book which was originally written in Norwegian and the only one to be translated so far. I was a little bit apprehensive about reading this book as I usually like to start a series at the beginning but Faithless can easily be read as a standalone I found.

The book starts off with Frank Frølich carrying out a surveillance operation, which should be quite simple but things take a turn when a body is found and it turns out to be the girlfriend of an old pal Frølich has just reconnected with after 20 years. Not only that on a different case a young student disappears with out a trace and the hunt is on to find out what happened and where she is.

The characters are all well developed and I particularly liked Frølich, his determination and possibly loneliness drew me to him. Also Lena, she seemed like a really interesting character, quite feisty and I’d like to have found out a little bit more about her, hopefully we’ll get to read more in this series soon that can shed more light into her character.

This isn’t a fast paced book but it grabs your attention and keeps you reading, the story has many twists and turns and I really wasn’t sure where the author was taking us and how it would end but it all tied up brilliantly and actually left me so disappointed I’d finished the book. This being the first book I’ve read in the Nordic Noir genre it’s really given me the taste for it, I thoroughly enjoyed Faithless and I’ll definitely be looking out for more books in the same genre.
