Anne Holt worked in the Oslo Police Department before becoming a lawyer and setting up her own law firm. Then she saw an advert for a crime writing competition. She set to work, wrote her first novel, but missed the deadline. However the novel did get published, and became an immediate bestseller. She has since written many more books and the latest one, called ‘1222’ is about to be published in Britain. She talks to Jane about the book, which is set in a snowbound hotel where hundreds of people, including at least one murderer, are marooned following a train crash.
