The award-winning book adapted for the BBCs critically acclaimed TV series Wisting starring Carrie Anne Moss, from the producers behind Wallander and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Only three houses away from Wisting’s, a man has been sitting dead in front of his TV for four months. There is no indication anything criminal has taken place. His death doesn’t hit the headlines, but something about the case that catches the attention of William Wisting’s journalist daughter, Line.

Publisher Review

'The Caveman will delight fans of suspense and procedural realism.'- * Crime Fiction Lover * 'It's a thought-provoking book - and, as in the gripping climax, an exciting one, as the two investigations merge in a well-engineered and entirely unexpected way. Then, if you haven't already, do go back and read THE HUNTING DOGS.' * Bob Cornwell in Euro Crime * 'A thought-provoking book.' * Euro Crime Blog * 'Fascinating concept . . . "the caveman" . . . where a criminal could take over and live the life of a marginalised member of society without being detected.' * Shotsmag * 'May well be the breakthrough book in the UK for this most unusual crime writer.' * CrimeTime * 'Not a typical serial killer melodrama.' * The Sunday Herald * 'If you haven't already, introduce yourself to Norway's Chief Inspector William Wisting - you'll warm to him even though his patch can get pretty cold.' * The Sunday Sport * 'Up there with the best of the Nordic crime writers.' * The Times *
