Former Special Forces commando Anna Aune has abandoned the world and everyone in it, and is hiding out in a hovercraft at the North Pole. She’s there for the duration of the Arctic winter to document the destruction unleashed by climate change.
On All Saints’ Day, the pitch-black sky is suddenly lit up by a distress flare shot up from a Chinese research station. Anna and her colleague are the only ones close enough to come to their rescue. But is the flare a cry for help, or a warning sign?
At the Chinese base, a vision from a nightmare awaits them. In the laboratory, they find the researchers dead, frozen solid and covered in ice. It quickly becomes clear that they were brutally murdered. At the same moment, a furious Arctic storm blows in. A savage power struggle has provoked a full-scale international conflict – by any means necessary – for Arctic resources. And Anna Aune is caught in the middle of it all.
“The Ice is a tense international thriller that plays out at one of Earth’s most inhospitable places – the North Pole. “The Ice” is technically close to a perfect thriller."VG, 5 out of 6 stars
“The Ice is a claustrophobic thriller.”Aftenposten
“I love how the writer just plunges straight into the action and keeps the tension up throughout book.”Stavanger Aftenblad, 6 out of 6 stars
