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

Seventeen years ago, William Wisting led one of Norway’s most notorious murder investigations into the killing of young Cecilia Linde. The discovery that evidence was falsified and the wrong man convicted, results in his suspension. With the media baying for blood, only Wisting’s journalist daughter, Line, is on his side. Worse, the real murderer must still be out there…

Publisher Review

'An original, thrilling novel about a policeman's struggle on the edge between disaster and restoration of justice.' * The Martin Beck Award, 2014 given by the Swedish Crime Writers' Academy for the best crime novel in translation. * 'Urban rather than natural settings are the stamping grounds of Jorn Lier Horst, whose Drges (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 and Euro Noir * '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 * 'Written from the viewpoint of a recently serving police officer, this book's authenticity gives a true flavour of the search for a dangerous criminal.' * Crime Squad * 'An immaculately plotted, beautifully structured novel, complex and full of tension.' * Crime Time * 'Gripping and well executed.' * The Herald * 'One of the best Scandinavian crime novels I've read.' * Mrs Peabody Investigates *
