The Holiday Party

By David Øybo

Should chief investigator James Wiley Redding of the Norwegian Police suspect that any of the doctors working in the small rural hospital of Godshus, located where a fjord meets the North Sea, might be linked to the gruesome discovery made on a December morning after their annual Julebord (holiday party)? Much more whodunit than a diversified nordic noir novel, JULEBORD is laced with what life is like to work in a small rural hospital, where things and humans occasionally get dirty. Not merely a piece of - at times - a bit upmarket crime fiction, the story brings to the realization that in today’s small global village we are linked to each other in some way - whether we want to be or not and cannot hide from the events that affect us all.

About the author

When not busy either with his family, or working nights as an internal medicine doctor in hospitals on islands, David Øybo is trying to finish the two remaining stories of the CORRELATIONS trilogy. Should there ever be enough time and space, he would get one more cat besides Maša. A male Russian Blue. The cat would be named VV (Vladimir Vladimirovich). As Maša is a lady, VV would need to be castrated. The locale this scribbler has chosen to call home on the dreary third planet of our solar system is the only city that truly deserves that designation: New York.
