Sundstøl_Devil's coverVidar Sundstøl will be at the American Swedish Insitute on Sunday, October 8 at 2:00 p.m. for the launch of his new book, The Devil's Wedding Ring. Mystery author Allen Eskens will lead a Q&A with Vidar, and a book signing will follow.


After a mysterious disappearance, private investigator Max Fjellanger is plunged into a menacing world of ghostly monks, severed pigs’ heads, and mythic rites, all somehow connected to Midsummer Eve, which is fast approaching. This is award-winning crime novelist Vidar Sundstøl at his best, spinning a tale that is taut with suspense and steeped in Norwegian culture, past and present.


"In his novel, The Devil’s Wedding Ring, Vidar Sundstøl has written an intelligent and thoughtful mystery about a man returning to his home country to learn the truth about a friend’s death, and in doing so, he must face ghosts of his own. This pitch-perfect elegy makes for compelling reading, the kind of work that must be savored." —Allen Eskens, author of The Life We Bury


"Ancient myth and contemporary detection collide in this highly impressive thriller." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
