First Line: She was walking home from school.

Johanne Vik, former FBI profiler now psychology professor at Oslo University, is called to the home of Alvhild Sofienberg. Terminally ill, Sofienberg has always been puzzled by the case of Aksel Seier, a man who was convicted of murdering a child in 1956, served eight years of his sentence, and then was quietly set free. Sofienberg is convinced that Seier was innocent and she wants Vik to look into the case.

Police Inspector Adam Stubo is immersed in the investigation of a series of missing children. He wants Vik to help him with his investigation, and he won't take no for an answer even though Vik has a full plate, not only of work, but as the mother of a mentally handicapped child.

Holt is a former minister of justice, lawyer and journalist. Although she spends a bit too much time carefully delineating each of her characters, this book is an ardent commentary on parenthood and an absorbing mystery with a nice little twist at the end. What Is Mine is the first in a three-part series centered on Vik and Stubo, and I know I won't be able to stay away from the other two books.

Try as I might, I just can't ignore these wonderful mysteries that keep coming my way from Scandinavia!

Children in Norway are disappearing, and the team of police inspector Stubo and ex-FBI profiler Vik must work against time to prevent more loss. Holt pulls you into a complicated plot with lots of surprises, believable characters and suspense that doesn't let up.
