A paranormal detective story that re-imagines the theft of Munch's painting, The Scream
A man steps into the path of a tram. An art school love affair turns tragic. And the eccentric wandering of an antiques dealer catches the attention of a detective investigating the theft of Norway’s most celebrated work of art, Edvard Munch’s The Scream. Haunted by weird dreams and psychic visions, former mental patient Torsten Egland may provide the key in Detective Inspector Henrik Nordkapp’s search for the stolen painting. After a series of mysterious events, Nordkapp must decide if he should abandon traditional police methods and place his faith in a quirky man whose troubled mind may be communicating with the painting itself.
A short story from the speculative fiction anthology, The Masters Reimagined 2.
Inspired by Edvard Munch’s The Scream.
