Samuel Bjørk is one of five finalists for the Riverton Prize, the award given to the best Norwegian crime novel of the year, for his latest installment in the bestselling Mia & Munch series, The Boy in the Headlights.
The jury’s motivation reads as follows:
“It’s liberating to read a writer who has such a distinct voice, one who dares to go his way. The author avoids being too verbose, and almost has a minimalist style. But through a language that is precise and rhythmic it gives the story drive and pace.”
The winner will be announced on April 4th.
