'The Caveman is Wisting's fourth appearance in an English translation, and shows Horst a former Larvik cop to be up there with the best of the Nordic crime writers.' -Marcel Berlins, The Times 'The writer's career as a police chief has supplied a key ingredient for the crime fiction form: credibility.' -Barry Forshaw, author of Nordic Noir and Euro Noir 'A phenomenal new voice in Nordic Noir. His handling of landscape and location matches that of Henning Mankell.' -Steven Peacock, author of Swedish Crime Fiction 'These novels are top-notch Norwegian/Scandi crime, which, thanks to their author's background in policing, provide genuine insights into investigative procedure and are utterly gripping throughout.' -Mrs Peabody Investigates 'In the finest class of Scandinavian Noir.' --Caro Ramsay, author of the Anderson and Costello series
'Jorn Lier Horst is one of the most brilliantly understated crime novelists writing today.' -Joan Smith, Sunday Times 'A moving testament to the value of each and every human life.' -Nicola Upson, author of the Josephine Tey series 'If you haven't already, introduce yourself to Norway's Chief Inspector William Wisting- you'll warm to him even though his patch can get pretty cold.' -Jon Wise, Sunday Sport 'I really like Chief Inspector William Wisting, he s a decent man and an excellent detective. In Ordeal he leads us through a complex and intriguing investigation into Norway's underworld in a masterpiece of storytelling.' --Lin Anderson, author of the Dr Rhona MacLeod series
Together with her one year old daughter Maja, single mother Sofie Lund moves into the house she inherited from her grandfather. Sofie has such painful memories that she has had every trace of the old man removed, every trace but a locked safe that has been bolted to the basement floor. Inside the safe, Sofie finds something shocking that will also become crucial evidence in a case that has plagued Inspector William Wisting for a long time. To follow this lead though, he must cut across important loyalties and undermine confidence in the police force.
