WISTING: THE MAJOR TV SHOW NOW ON BBC FOUR
Winner of The Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel in 2013
Seventeen years ago William Wisting led the investigation into one of Norway’s most widely publicised criminal cases, when the young Cecilia Linde was killed. Now it is discovered that evidence was planted and the wrong man convicted. Wisting is suspended and the media smell blood. William Wisting has spent his life hunting criminals, but now it is he who is hunted. To discover what really happened he must work alone and undercover, assisted only by his journalist daughter Line. Then another young woman disappears.
Chief Insp. William Wisting started his career by solving the murder of Cecilia Linde, a girl who went missing and was found dead 12 days later. Seventeen years afterward, in Horst's engaging third mystery featuring the Norwegian policeman to be published in English (after Closed for Winter), the media accuse Wisting of planting a cigarette butt with DNA evidence at the crime scene in the Cecilia case and failing to take the statement of a key witness. As the officer in charge, he is suspended pending review of the Bureau for Investigative Police Affairs. Wisting's daughter, Line, an investigative journalist in Oslo and one of several well-drawn characters, helps her father try to uncover who tampered with the evidence and to determine whether Cecilia's convicted killer, Rudolf Haglund, who is now out on parole pending review of the tainted evidence, was, in fact, guilty. A recent unsolved murder and another young girl's disappearance heighten the suspense.
