A missing person and a headless corpse, Jensen is on the case. 

June, and as Copenhagen swelters under record temperatures, a headless corpse surfaces in the murky harbour, landing a new case on the desk of DI Henrik Jungersen, just as his holiday is about to start. Elsewhere in the city, Syrian refugee Aziz Almasi, driver to Member of Parlimament Esben Norregaard has vanished. Fearing a link to shady contacts from his past, Norregaard is reluctant to talk about the missing driver, which of course wakes the interest in crime reporter Jensen, who gets eager to investigate. Could the body in the harbour be Aziz? Jensen turns to former lover Henrik for help. As events spiral dangerously out of control, they are thrown together once more in the pursuit of evil, in a case more twisted and, more dangerous than they could ever have imagined.

Back from the Dead is the thrilling third part in the Copenhagen noir Jensen series.

“In what is a complex and well plotted thriller that draws you in from the very first page, Back From The Dead is quite possibly the best book in the series so far. It is a dark and atmospheric thriller that I loved and I can’t wait to see where Heidi Amsinck will take Jensen and Henrik next.

“With a case rapidly spinning out of con troll, the two anti-heroes find their rapport endangered before the truth emerges, and a surprising one at that. Good stuff.”

“You want the main characters to succeed – you really want them to succeed. And while you’re observing, you’re thinking about bouncing around Denmark’s capital with ice creams. A cracking combination.”

“Back from the Dead is another compelling slice of Scandi-Noir with a determined heroine seeking the truth and uncovering much more than she bargained for.”
