Yours Until Death

Yours until death by Gunnar Staalesen

Yours Until Death

Translated by 

The single-mother families of the isolated high-rise community under the shadow of the Lyderhorn, Bergen's great mountain – steep, dark and oppressive – were being robbed, terrorized and molested by a teenage gang led by the psychopath, Joker, who looked like a priest, but with the eyes of a tiger and the teeth of a decaying corpse.

One of the finest, most serious, most ambitious books in post-war Norwegian crime writing' Nils Nordberg

'Staalesen is another fine representative of Scandinavian crime fiction' Independent

'Yours Until Death is an unbearably tense novel of revenge, murder, marriage, child-hood, and the destructive force of passion' DuFour Editions

'Staalesen provides a thick vein of melancholy running behind the dark humour, along with a very strong sense of place. This is a book to read with the lights on. What makes it so menacing is the everyday feel to it, and the ordinariness of the people Varg encounters' Crime Review
