Book Summary: William Wisting må genåbne en gammel forsvindingssag, da liget af en kvinde dukker op i en udgravning. Hvis der er tale om mord, er der kun få dage, til forældelsesfristen indtræder, og hendes morder kan gå fri for altid. Samtidig forsvinder en anden ung kvinde, og først efter nogle dage går det op for politiet, at der kan være tale om en kriminel handling. Wisting og hans hold kæmper mod tiden for måske denne gang at redde et liv – og for at kunne stille en morder til ansvar efter 25 år. Bogen kan læses uafhængigt af de andre bøger i serien.

Book Summary: Sinds het verschijnen in juni 2013 van Noorse auteurs in Nederlandse vertaling 1741-2012. Een bibliografie - Norske forfattere oversatt til nederlandsk 1741-2012. En bibliografi hebben verschillende cultuurbemiddelaars die vertalingen verzorgen van Noorse literatuur in het Nederlands spontaan suggesties en aanvullingen doorgegeven. De respons geeft mij het vertrouwen dat de eerste druk van deze bibliografie een handig werkinstrument is voor al wie met Noorse literatuur begaan is. De bibliografie uit 2013 vormt dan ook een basis voor een verdere studie waarbij een ruimer beeld wordt verkregen van de wijze waarop Noorse literatuur onder de aandacht werd gebracht in tijdschriften, week- en maandbladen. Tijdens de opmaak van de eerste druk werd het belang van de boekomslagen en illustraties duidelijk. Fraaie boekomslagen illustreren de tijdsgeest waarin deze Noorse vertalingen eveneens werden opgenomen in de toenmalige brede culturele stroming. Wegens het belang van de ontwerpen van boekomslagen wordt in deze uitgave ook een aanzet tot inventaris van de illustratoren opgenomen. Het kan een beeld geven van de wijze waarop uitgevers een bepaalde strategie hebben gevolgd om iemands werk te typeren en te promoten. De bibliografie wordt uitgebracht in de reeks ‘Studies on Cultural Transfer & Transmission' die onder andere in het teken van de cultuurbemiddelaar staat. De vertalers en vertaalsters zijn de culturele bemiddelaars die het werk en gedachtegoed van de auteurs aan het Nederlandstalige publiek overdragen.

JØRN LIER HORST (f. 1970) arbeidet fram til september 2013 som etterforskningsleder i Vestfold politidistrikt, men er i dag fulltids forfatter.

Book Summary: William Wisting er inne i sin andre ferieuke. Fra sidelinjen observerer han hvordan en lokal forsvinningssak utvikler seg til å bli en nasjonal nyhetssak. Agnete Roll har vært borte i tre dager, uten livstegn. Mens forsvinningen fremdeles skaper overskrifter mottar han et brev som kun inneholder en spesiell tallkombinasjon. Det trekker ham inn i en gammel sak han ikke tidligere har hatt befatning med. En sommerkveld i 1999 ble 17 år gamle Tone Vaterland drept på vei hjem fra jobb. Saken ble raskt oppklart. Skyld ble fordelt, straff utmålt og dommen er sonet. Glemselens slør har lagt seg over sak 1569, men hendelser i ettertiden gjør det mulig å se sammenhenger som ikke var synlige for tjue år siden. Brevet er bare det første av flere hvor det pekes på andre løsninger enn den etablerte sannheten. Wisting leter etter både avsenderen og en ny løsning, men ikke alle er glade for at det rettes nytt lys på det som har passert. Sak 1569 er den fjerde, frittstående boken i Cold Case-kvartetten, der Wisting gjenåpner saker som virker umulige å løse.

Book Summary: Police officer Alexander Blix and celebrity blogger Emma Ramm join forces to track down a serial killer with a thirst for attention and high-profile murders, in the first episode of a gripping new Nordic Noir series... 'Grim, gory and filled with plenty of dark twists ... There's definitely a Scandinavian chill in the air with this fascinating read that loses none of its terror and fun in translation' Scottish Sun 'A clever, gripping crime novel with personality, flair, and heart' Crime by the Book 'An exercise in literary tag-teaming from two of Norway's biggest crime writers with a bold new take on the serial-killer-as-twisted-artist ... the start of a series with potential' Sunday Times ________________ Oslo, 2018. Former long-distance runner Sonja NordstrØm never shows at the launch of her controversial autobiography, Always Number One. When celebrity blogger Emma Ramm visits NordstrØm's home later that day, she finds the door unlocked and signs of a struggle inside. A bib with the number 'one' has been pinned to the TV. Police officer Alexander Blix is appointed to head up the missing-persons investigation, but he still bears the emotional scars of a hostage situation nineteen years earlier, when he killed the father of a five-year-old girl. Traces of NordstrØm soon show up at different locations, but the appearance of the clues appear to be carefully calculated ... evidence of a bigger picture that he's just not seeing... Blix and Ramm soon join forces, determined to find and stop a merciless killer with a flare for the dramatic, and thirst for attention. Trouble is, he's just got his first taste of it... ________________ 'A stunningly excellent collaboration ... a brutal tale of fame, murder, and reality TV that gets the pulse racing' Russel McLean 'Everything about this crime novel sings, the relationship between Blix and Emma, which is complex, but also the relationship between Blix and Fosse and Kovic. The past bleeds into the present and the clever melding of the strands of the story and the slow reveal of details that propel the story is masterly. This tale often surprises or shifts in subtle ways that are pleasing and avoid clichÉ. As the opener for a new series this is a cracker, long live the marriage of Horst and Enger' New Books Magazine 'Death Deserved is a fast-moving, punchy, serial killer investigative novel with a whammy of an ending. If this is the first in the Blix and Ramm series, then here's to many more!' LoveReading

Book Summary: 1998. Varg Veum sits by the hospital bedside of his long-term girlfriend Karin, whose life-threatening injuries provide a deeply painful reminder of the mistakes he's made. Investigating the seemingly innocent disappearance of a wind-farm inspector, Varg Veum is thrust into one of the most challenging cases of his career, riddled with conflicts, environmental terrorism, religious fanaticism, unsolved mysteries and dubious business ethics. Then, in one of the most heart-stopping scenes in crime fiction, the first body appears… A chilling, timeless story of love, revenge and desire, We Shall Inherit the Wind deftly weaves contemporary issues with a stunning plot that will leave you gripped to the final page. This is Staalesen at his most thrilling, thought-provoking best. 'The Varg Veum series is more concerned with character and motivation than spectacle, and it's in the quieter scenes that the real drama lies.' Herald Scotland 'Staalesen is one of my very favourite Scandinavian authors and this is a series with very sharp teeth' Ian Rankin ‘A Norwegian Chandler' Jo Nesbo ‘Gunnar Staalesen was writing suspenseful and socially conscious Nordic Noir long before any of today's Swedish crime writers had managed to put together a single book page … one of Norway's most skillful storytellers' Johan Theorin ‘Razor-edged Scandinavian crime fiction at its finest' Quentin Bates ‘Not many books hook you in the first chapter – this one did, and never let go!'

Book Summary: A murder at the Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia, bears a close resemblance to one in Trondheim, Norway. The corpse of the museum curator in Virginia is found flayed in his office by the cleaning staff; the corpse of an archivist at the library in Norway, is found inside a locked vault used to store delicate and rare books. Richmond homicide detective Felicia Stone and Trondheim police inspector Odd Singsaker find themselves working on similar murder cases, committed the same way, but half a world away. And both murders are somehow connected to a sixteenth century palimpsest book—The Book of John—which appears to be a journal of a serial murderer back in 1529 Norway, a book bound in human skin. A runaway bestseller in Norway, Jørgen Brekke's Where Monsters Dwell has since sold to over fourteen countries. Where Monsters Dwell is the most awaited English language crime fiction debut in years.

Book Summary: Police Inspector Odd Singsaker has been captured, imprisoned on an island off the Northern coast of Norway. He wakes to find himself holding a shotgun. Next to him is a corpse. But what events led him to this point? And how did he get here? A few weeks earlier, Felicia, his wife, disappeared. Though he didn’t know it, she was trying to find her way back to Odd to reconcile, but then she vanished into a snowstorm. Possibly involved is a corrupt, coldblooded cop from Oslo, a devious college student who’s stolen a great deal of cocaine from drug dealers, and a hit man hired by the drug dealers who have been robbed. All of these lives intersect with Odd’s as he searches for Felicia. The Fifth Element is ultimately the story of what happened to Felicia Stone. Within that journey, brutal crimes are uncovered, tenacious love shines through, and chilling characters with nothing to lose will stop at nothing to get what they want. Jorgen Brekke once again delivers a chilling thriller that readers will tear through to unravel what happened-and why.

Book Summary: At the end of World War II, twenty-year-old Vera is brutally raped by an unknown assailant. From that rape is born a boy named Fred, a misfit who later becomes a talented boxer. Vera’s young son, Barnum, forms a special but bizarre relationship with his half brother, fraught with rivalry and dependence as well as love. “I should have been your father,” Fred tells Barnum, “instead of the fool who says he is.” It is Barnum, who is now a screenwriter with a fondness for lies and alcohol, who narrates his family’s saga. As he shares his family’s history, he chronicles generations of independent women and absent and flawed men whom he calls the Night Men. Among them is his father, Arnold, who bequeaths to Barnum his circus name, his excessively small stature, and a con man’s belief in the power of illusion. Filled with a galaxy of finely etched characters, this prize-winning novel is a tour de force and a literary masterpiece richly deserving of the accolades it has received.
