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


Wisting’s first case was already cold when he took it on.


1983. Christmas is approaching and ambitious young police officer William Wisting has just become the father of twins.


Edged off a robbery investigation by more experienced officers, he is soon on a less prestigious case: in a dilapidated barn stands a forgotten, bullet-riddled car.


Tasked with finding out how long the car has been there and what happened to the driver, young Wisting has no idea how this case will change his life.


Return to the early career of the brilliant William Wisting – and get to the know the case that made him into the detective he became.



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