    I've never heard of one, but I'm reading a book (not particularly dog related) at the moment that has one in it and I was wondering what they looked like!
    The book is translated into English from Norwegian (I think) so was wondering whether we know the breed as something else over here?

    A quick google suggests they might be some sort of Hyena type of dog...

    Ignore me, I've just answered my own question! After a bit of searching I found this:

    For those like me who wonder about the novel’s vicious “black Metzner dog,” supposedly related to the speckled hyena, a new friend in Denmark did some googling and found an interview in Swedish with the author (Nyheter - DN.SE ) in which Nesbo indicates that the dog is fictional.

    So, in fact there is no such thing!! Shame really, it sounded like a mean arse dog, I wanted to meet one!

    According to marywhipplereviews.com/jo-nesbo-the-redeemer-nordic-noir-norway/‎, the black metzner in Jo Nesbo's recent book The Redeemer is a fictional breed.
