Igi Heitmann battles the city's underbelly of corruption, sadism, and child abuse as she tries to piece together the last days of her dead father's life

Blackwell North Amer
It is a cold, dark, windy night in Oslo, and Igi Heitmann pores over the debris in her dead father's office, trying to piece together the last days of his life as a failed private eye. She discovers a curious butterfly medallion in his desk - which in turn leads to the discovery of a young woman, Siv Underland, in a snow-drift, two bullets in her head and a gun in her hand. Igi learns that her father and the young woman died within hours of each other. Who killed Siv Underland, and did the same person kill Andreas Heitmann?
Igi is an under-employed research psychologist, with more than enough problems of her own: her husband is a transvestite who often wakes up next to very attractive men instead of next to her. But she soon finds herself in the role of detective, on a trail that leads not only to the final days of her father and Siv Underland, but to the city's underworld of corruption, sadism and child abuse.
The Butterfly Effect is a fast-paced, unconventional story of present-day Oslo, with a fast-thinking, unconventional heroine who must decide if the events confronting her have come about through accident or through sinister human design.
