Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents Scatter Her Ashes by Heine Bakkeid, read by Colin Mace.

Thorkild Aske returns in the second novel in this brilliant, darkly funny crime series from a fresh voice in Nordic noir.

Disgraced, damaged former police officer Thorkild Aske has stopped taking his painkillers after his last experience searching for the missing in Northern Norway. Wracked by withdrawal and desperate for work, he reluctantly agrees to investigate the disappearance of two schoolgirls for best-selling crime writer Milla Lind - but he soon discovers that Lind’s interest in the case is not, as she claims, simply research for her latest novel.

When Thorkild discovers that her previous investigator was murdered on the job, no-one will explain why - all he has to go on are files about unrelated cases from all across Norway. Oh, and his ex-wife wants to talk. What could possibly go wrong?

"Wonderfully creepy." (Daily Mail

Another very good book. More Aske!

I really enjoyed book 1 and this book didn’t disappoint... More Aske please! Bless him ... will he ever get a break...?
Colin Mace narrates well again really giving us the dark thoughts of Aske and his turmoil. He also delivers the well written dry humour in just the right timbre for Aske.
More Thorkild Aske please.
