The books about Lotte-Marie are considered as Norway’s sexy, humorous and feministic answer to Jo Nesbo/Harry Hole and Gunnar Staalelsen/Varg Veum. The books are of course UNISEX and quite popular also among men. Humor, irony, intelligence, romance, sex and excitement, and sometimes crime, mysteries and murderer – are good reading material for both men and women. It´s also being said that men actually falls in love with the complexity of the Lotte-figure and of course they may learn a thing or two about women – and women on the other hand, might learn something about their own mysteries. The books might be read separately and are totally limitless in terms of language and use of humor and satire, but still with an underlying message to the sharp reader.


The Author Trude Helén Hole writes about fantasies and emotions, love and careers and about sex, lust and passion in a tone that captures both genders. The books also touches both vulnerability and courage – all told with a lot of extravagant humor and self-irony. Hole got an easy-going style and writes unfiltered through a pretty twisted and fast-going-pen. The sky is no limit.

The Dark side of Winter is the third book about the charming Norwegian novel figure Lotte-Marie and a parody of Knife written by Jo Nesbo. Norway´s beloved heroine Lotte-Marie has left her glamorous life in California and returned to Oslo where she experiences both loneliness, drama and excitement. She also puts her life at stake in her eagerness to help the brilliant, audaciously rogue police officer, Barry Hole and the sexy detective Varg Lerum to solve the mysterious murders. If you like it a bit fierce, raw, sexy, exciting, perverted and funny – then this is the book for you. #Parody
