Crime novel published in Denmark: "Den blinde skare"
Jógvan Isaksen has written 4 crime novels in the series about crime detective William Hammer and his Skansa department. The third book in the series, "Hitt blinda liðið", has now been translated and released in Danmark by publisher Marselius. Anya Mathilde Poulsen has translated from Faroese to Danish.
About the novel: A skeleton has been found in a basement brick wall in a house in Reyni, the old part of Tórshavn. The skeleton is found only a couple of days prior to the total solar eclipse in March 2015 and the police are busy with all the thousand tourists who have travelled to the Faroe Islands to experience the eclipse. William Hammer and his Skansa department are therefore leading the investigations. Tests show that the skeleton is more than a hundred years old and that the famous Christmas meeting in 1888 plays a part in this crime event.
