The Hunting Dogs by Jørn Lier Horst



William Wisting is an experienced investigator. 17 years ago he led the investigation of a widely publicized murder case where a young woman was abducted and killed. Now new information has surfaced claiming that evidence was planted and the wrong man convicted. The man convicted of the crime is released from prison. Wisting is suspended and to discover what really happened he gets help from his daughter Line, who works as a criminal reported. Then the unthinkable happens, another young woman disappears.

Critically Acclaimed

Jørn Lier Horst has worked as an investigator at the Norwegian Police and he was suspected of having planted evidence. After that he wrote The Hunting Dogs, and excellent and critically acclaimed crime novel. It has won several prizes, e.g. The Glass Key (top Nordic novel 2013) and The Golden Revolver (top Norwegian crime novel 2012).

8th Novel

The Hunting Dogs is the eighth novel in the series about William Wisting, but only the second one translated to English. Why haven’t more of them been translated? This one was so good!

Considering the author’s own experiences it is hardly a surprise that the story seems believable, but it also keeps you guessing until the very end. My dad also liked the novel and appreciated that it did not contain “as much family drama.”
