The Wisting Quartet #2
Seventeen years ago William Wisting led the investigation into one of Norway’s most talked about criminal cases: the murder of young Cecilia Linde. Now signs have appeared that evidence was planted and the wrong man might have been convicted. Wisting is suspended and the media smells blood. Used to being the one doing the hunting, Wisting finds himself in the uncomfortable position of being the hunted. To uncover what really happened and clear his name, he will have to conduct his own, undercover investigation, aided by his journalist daughter Line. But as the clock ticks and yet another young woman disappears, Wisting’s chances of proving himself seem ever more tenuous.
Gripping and well executed.
An immaculately plotted, beautifully structured novel, complex and full of tension.
Jørn Lier Horst /.../ has an ability to convey the police’s curious sniffing so that you yourself are drawn into the hunt.
Jørn Lier Horst tells this story with the best tools of the genre and without resorting to any simple solutions. It feels as if the novel comes with a built-in page-turner.
It’s an amazing read!
