9780816698998: Only the Dead (Minnesota Trilogy)

A Norwegian tourist has been found murdered on the shore of Lake Superior—right where an Ojibwe man may have been killed more than one hundred years earlier. Four months later, the official investigation is supposedly over but still not resolved, and U.S. Forest Service officer Lance Hansen, drawn into the mystery by his grisly discovery of the body, is uncovering clues disturbingly close to home.

His former father-in-law, Willy Dupree, may hold the key to the century-old murder of Swamper Caribou. And his own brother, Andy, might know more than he’s telling—more than he should know—about the recent homicide. The relationship between the brothers takes a dangerous turn as their annual deer hunt becomes a deadly game.

Steeped in the rich history of Lake Superior’s rugged North Shore, this follow-up to the Riverton Prize–winning The Land of Dreams pursues two tales through a bleak and beautiful landscape haunted by the lives and dreams of its Scandinavian immigrants and Native Americans. Hansen finds himself equally haunted by the complex mysteries that continue to unravel around him.

About the Author:

Vidar Sundstøl is the acclaimed Norwegian author of seven novels, including the internationally best-selling Minnesota Trilogy, which he wrote after living on the North Shore of Lake Superior for two years. The first volume of the series, The Land of Dreams (Minnesota, 2013), was nominated for the Glass Key for best Scandinavian crime novel of the year.

Tiina Nunnally has received numerous awards for her translations of Scandinavian literature, including the PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize for her translation of Sigrid Undset’s Kristin Lavransdatter.


Review:

"The second in the Minnesota Trilogy, this slim volume is so exquisitely written, lyrically descriptive and mystically mysterious it could stand on its own, but to understand all the nuances it’s best read as part of the trilogy." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Like the central movement of a dark Grieg symphony, this brief second installment of Norwegian author Sundstøl’s Minnesota Trilogy resounds with two stunning variations on a single theme: the complex motivations behind murders that link brotherhood, love, and death. Readers will eagerly await The Ravens, the trilogy’s conclusion." —Publishers Weekly

"The second in Sundstøl’s Minnesota trilogy is a darker, more meditative mystery than the first, shot through with Gothic Romanticism and chilly metaphor." —Star Tribune
"Sundstøl’s outstanding second entry in his acclaimed “Minnesota Trilogy” measures up to the first installment with its quick pace and succinct plot. " —Library Journal
