1222 by Anne Holt

Today I read 1222  by Anne Holt.

1222 was a 2012 Edgar Award nominee.

Anne Holt is a Norwegian crime writer of the highest order. Her protagonist, Hanne Wilhelmsen, is an ex-police investigator now confined to a wheel chair.

The story is a locked-room mystery set in an isolated hotel in Norway where guests stranded during a monumental snowstorm start turning up dead.

Locked-room mysteries are not my usual preference.  I read this one because of the Edgar Award nomination.  I'm glad I did.
