NO MAJOR SPOILERS
As this is the twelth book of the Wisting series I was a bit worried that I would be missing a lot of the characters history. I have to admit that this was not the case.
Wisting is a Cheif Inspector in the Norwegian Police Service. Every year for the past twenty four years he has reread the files of a cold case as it has played on his mind that som,ething was missed at the time.
Adrian Stiller, from Police HQ has been assigned to go through the files of another cold case that is two years older, Stiller thinks that both cases are linked.
I soon settled into this book, the characters are well rounded, as you would expect. The story telling has a brilliant pace, starting off gently and building steadily to where Wisting finds himself in a life threatening situation. I found myself having to slow my reading pace as I was rushing through it. I like to savour books when I read them but this one really started to get me racing!
I notice some of the earlier Wisting books have been translated into English. I will definitely be searching them out.
I would like to thank the publishers Penguin UK/Michael Joseph, Jørn Lier Horst and Netgalley for inviting me to read this book and give an honest review.
