1222 metres above sea level, train 601 from Oslo careens off iced rails as the worst snowstorm in Norwegian history gathers force around it. Marooned in the mountains with night falling, its travellers are forced to abandon their snowbound train and decamp into a centuries-old mountain hotel. They ought to be safe from the storm here, but as dawn breaks one of them will be found dead, murdered

With the storm showing no sign of abating, retired police inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen is asked to investigate, but Hanne has no wish to get involved. She has learned the hard way that the pursuit of justice comes at a price; her glittering career in the force ended when a bullet lodged in her spine.

Trapped in a wheelchair, trapped by the killer within, trapped by the deadly storm outside, Hanne’s growing unease is shared by everyone in the hotel. Why was the last train carriage sealed? Why is the top floor of the hotel locked down? And, of course, what if the killer strikes again?
