Brought to you by Penguin.

Following weeks of heavy rain, the earth comes crumbling down on one of Larvik’s residential areas, burying a handful of houses.

Detective William Wisting is quick to join the rescue operation. Luckily, by sunrise the next day, it becomes clear that the landslide has claimed no victims.

And yet, just twenty-four hours later, a body is found – and the victim was killed before the landslide.

As Wisting opens an investigation into the mysterious murder, he soon discovers this death might have dangerous ties to a series of ongoing cases.

And the clues start leading Wisting not towards an enemy on the outside – but to a traitor in his own unit…

Reviews

Praise for Jørn Lier Horst Tense, fast-paced...compelling Relentlessly exciting...creates a sense of real menace Atmospheric Jørn Lier Horst writes some of the best Scandinavian crime fiction available. His books are superbly plotted and addictive, the characters wonderfully realised Horst, a former Norwegian police detective, is often compared to Sweden’s Henning Mankell for his moody, sweeping crime dramas Expand reviews
