Synopsis

When the tenant of a house that university professor Nina owns with her doctor husband goes missing after an uncomfortable visit, Nina starts her own investigation ... with deeply disturbing results. The long-awaited new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of The Bird Tribunal.



**The Times Book of the Month**

**NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER IN NORWAY**

**WINNER of the Norwegian Booksellers' Award**

**Longlisted for the CWA International Dagger**



'A clever, quirky mystery, full of twists and reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best' The Times



'Ravatn, one of Norway's premier crime writers, manages to conjure up an extra level of chilling atmosphere that will make you want to put the heating on ... The Seven Doors packs a brutal punch' The Sun



'Elegantly plotted and economically executed ... Ravatn smoothly mixes Jungian and Freudian psychology with folklore and an affair's lethal consequences. Inexorable fate drives this searing modern take on ancient Greek tragedy' Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

_________________



University professor Nina is at a turning point. Her work seems increasingly irrelevant, her doctor husband is never home, relations with her difficult daughter are strained, and their beautiful house is scheduled for demolition.



When her daughter decides to move into another house they own, things take a very dark turn. The young woman living there disappears, leaving her son behind, the day after Nina and her daughter pay her a visit.



With few clues, the police enquiry soon grinds to a halt, but Nina has an inexplicable sense of guilt. Unable to rest, she begins her own investigation, but as she pulls on the threads of the case, it seems her discoveries may have very grave consequences for her and her family.



Exquisitely dark and immensely powerful, The Seven Doors is a sophisticated and deeply disturbing psychological thriller from one of Norway's most distinguished voices.
