9780857380357: Dinosaur Feather

Biology graduate Anna Bella Nor is just two weeks away from defending her thesis on the origin of birds when her supervisor Lars Helland is found dead in his office, his severed tongue lying on his bloodied shirtfront, a copy of her thesis in his lap. Police Superintendent Soren Marhauge is assigned to unravel what appears to be a multitude of intrigues in the Biology Department of Copenhagen University. Helland had been deliberately infected with a rare parasite that only an expert in the field would have access to. But when Anna Bella's fellow graduate and close friend is also killed, the murders seem to be linked not only to the university but also to Anna herself. As Marhauge investigates he comes up against the vicious competition for academic success, dark secrets from the past - all against the fabulous backdrop of palaeontology's age-old mysteries. Suspenseful, compelling, richly detailed and stunningly researched, The Dinosaur Feather unveils a sparkling mosaic of related destinies as well as a sinister web of lies.

About the Author:

Sissel-Jo Gazan is a biology graduate from the University of Copenhagen. The Dinosaur Feather was her breakthrough novel, having sold in twelve countries and named the Danish Novel of the Decade. It is followed up by The Arc of the Swallow. She lives in Berlin.

From Booklist:

University of Copenhagen Professor Lars Helland has built an international reputation with his research on the evolution of birds from dinosaurs. When he is found dead in his office, an autopsy shows that he has been murdered in an ingenious, hideous way. One of the people most affected by his death is Anna Bella Nor, who must defend her thesis in two weeks. Helland was her thesis advisor, and the tightly wound single parent is furious at Helland’s lack of interest in her work. When Soren Marhauge, a brilliant police detective who is also spectacularly emotionally conflicted, begins to investigate, he finds many potential suspects, including Anna, a Canadian scientific rival, and members of Helland’s department. Promising first-novelist Gazan, a graduate of the University of Copenhagen, offers vivid sketches of academic politics, scientific rivalries, and avian evolution. She also offers lengthy backstories on Anna, Soren, and Helland’s Canadian rival, which provide depth and texture but interfere with the narrative flow. The Dinosaur Feather was selected by Danish crime-fiction fans as the Danish Crime Novel of the Decade. --Thomas Gaughan
