Jorn Lier Horst
The multi-award winning series behind the thrilling BBC TV show Wisting starring Carrie Anne Moss, from the producers behind Wallander and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
William Wisting has encountered grotesque murders before. Nonetheless, he finds the savagely beaten corpse in a holiday cottage on the Vestfold coast particularly disturbing. His daughter Line, finally coming out of a dangerous relationship, finds another body in a boat close by. There will be more, and a dangerous journey into Euro-crime for Wisting before the case comes to its breath-taking conclusion.

'Jorn Lier Horst is a phenomenal new voice in Nordic Noir. His handling of landscape and location matches that of Henning Mankell. The narrative concern with digital technology is on a par with Stieg Larsson. What makes Lier Horst distinctive is his haunting ability to find the feasible in the psychopathic.' * Steve Peacock * 'Urban rather than natural settings are the stamping grounds of Jorn Lier Horst, whose Dregs (his first novel to be published in English) is immensely impressive. The writer's career as a police chief has supplied a key ingredient for the crime fiction form: credibility.' * Barry Forshaw, Nordic Noir *
