Oskar Jensen writes crime,
literary, historical, and children’s fiction.
His non-fiction focuses upon the history of song
and street culture. He is represented by Joanna Swainson.
A classic whodunnit for the twenty-first century.
Torben Helle – art historian, Danish expat and owner of several excellent Scandinavian jumpers – has been dragged to a remote snowbound Northumbrian mansion for a ten-year reunion with old university friends. Things start to go sideways when their host, a reclusive and irritating tech entrepreneur, makes some shocking revelations at the dinner table. And when these are followed by an apparent suicide, the group faces a test of their wits… and their trust.
Jensen is the real deal
