The inspiration for thrilling BBC TV show Wisting, from the producers behind Wallander and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo


Single mother Sofie Lund is ready for a new start when she moves into the house her grandfather left her. He died after a fall down the steps to his basement – in which there is a locked safe bolted to the floor.


Line Wisting, Sofie’s new friend, is with her when she opens the safe.


What they discover causes Chief Inspector William Wisting to doubt the conclusions reached in another case.


Despite opposition from his colleagues, Wisting reopens the investigation.


This decision will send Wisting racing along a trail of narcotics and murder that will separate the innocent from the damned.



Get your next Scandi crime fix from number one bestselling author Jorn Lier Horst..
