Oslo, 1969. When a wealthy man collapses and dies during a dinner party, Norwegian Police Inspector Kolbjørn Kristiansen, known as K2, is left shaken. For the victim, Magdalon Schelderup, a multimillionaire businessman and former resistance fighter, had contacted him only the day before, fearing for his life. It soon becomes clear that every one of Schelderup's ten dinner guests is a suspect in the case. The businessman was disliked, even despised, by many of those close to him; and his recently revised Will may have set events in motion. But which of the guests from his current and former wives and three children to his attractive secretary and old cohorts in the resistance - had the greatest motive for murder? With the inestimable help of Patricia a brilliant, acerbic young woman who lives an isolated life at home, in her wheelchair K2 begins to untangle the lies and deceit within each of the guests' testimonies. But as the investigators receive one mysterious letter after another warning of further deaths, K2 realises he must race to uncover the killer. Before they strike again.

A man is murdered/poisoned at dinner and everyone who was there is suspect. then some of the suspects start dying as well. My prime suspects were killed off leaving me with a "huh?" that forced me to keep reading to find out who was the killer. Satellite people - those who lives revolve around one person or event. Very good book.
