Review

A good Nordic police procedural with well-drawn charactersChoice Magazine

A well-crafted, atmospheric, character-driven thriller- I couldn't put it down! ― Alex Dahl, author of The Boy At The Door

Jørn Lier Horst is one of the most brilliantly understated crime novelists writing today -- Joan Smith ― Sunday Times

Up there with the best of the Nordic crime writers -- Marcel Berlin ― The Times

The Katharina Code is the best and most ingenious novel that Jørn Lier Horst has written thus far -- Tvedestrandsposten ― Norway

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

Jørn Lier Horst only gets better and better . . . The Katharina Code is a beautiful crime fiction story -- Stavanger Aftenblad ― Norway

The Katharina Code vibrates with anticipation all the way to the finish -- Dagbladet ― Norway

The author has employed literary devices one only rarely finds in a crime novel. And he's succeeded marvellously -- Tvedestrandsposten ― Norway

With The Katharina Code Jørn Lier Horst again delivers an excellent crime novel with a credible plot . . . All that remains is to declare that Jørn Lier Horst impresses again -- Østlands-Posten ― Norway

The untangling [of the mystery], the tactics, and the climax keep the suspense at a solid Horst level -- Trønder Avisa ― Norway

Jørn Lier Horst has truly done it this time . . . Exceptionally well-executed -- Tønsbergs Blad ― Norway

Horst invites the readers to join the investigation in a credible manner that highlights professional practices [in the police] and generates a new kind of suspense -- Bok 365 ― Norway

Norwegian bestselling author, former policeman Jørn Lier Horst delivers yet another adept story . . . Without excessive complications, unnecessary frills and decorations in his style, [Lier Horst] writes in a bare and sober prose which one still may refer to as masculine. In the style of the genre's founder, Ed McBain ― Politiken, Denmark

It's thrilling and well-narrated . . . I look forward to reading the upcoming novels and am excited to see what old cases appear. . . . The author is an expert when it comes to characters, and I'm crazy about William Wisting as well as his family, and colleagues at the Larvik police ― Litteratursiden, Denmark

I'm crazy about Jørn Lier Horst's style of writing and crime fiction, where the story and the human character traits are front-and-center and a theme is used as the fulcrum of the story - in this [novel] it's the theme of lies, and what they do to people ― Bogblogger.dk, Denmark --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The first instalment in the Cold Case Quartet from the international bestseller. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
