Review

'Horst, a former Norwegian policeman, now produces classy procedurals with plotting, depth and humanity to rival the best of the Scandis. '-The Sunday Times Crime Book Club; 'Following on from excellent crimer The Caveman, top author of Nordic nastiness Horst sets his series hero Chief Insp Wisting a new poser.'-The Sunday Sport; 'Horst's novels are solid, satisfying police procedurals, offering an insider's view of the tensions between detectives and bureaucrats who want results at any cost.'-The Sunday Times; 'Lier Horst's books are always an excellent mix of police procedural and character study which give them a special place in Scandinavian crime fiction.'-Crime Pieces; 'Horst writes some of the best Scandinavian crime fiction available. His books are superbly plotted and addictive, the characters superbly realised. Ordeal kept me engaged to the end and I cannot wait for the next.'-Yrsa Sigurdardottir; 'I really like Chief Inspector William Wisting... In Ordeal he leads us through a complex and intriguing investigation into Norway's underworld in a masterpiece of storytelling.'-Lin Anderson; 'There is an air of authenticity that striates this gripping narrative...The run-up to the final resolution is absolutely gripping.'-Shots Magazine; 'A pleasure to read, the characters and situations are completely believable and I would not hesitate to recommend it.'-Live and Deadly; 'Lier Horst has delivered a masterclass in ingenious plot construction and this is intelligent crime fiction which leaves you pondering. Simply stunning and highly recommended.'-My Reading Corner; 'The mystery element is expertly done, Ordeal is light on action, heavy on authenticity, a quietly addictive read that keeps you turning those pages.'-Liz Loves Books; 'I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the English translated versions of these books and hoping more books get translated in the meantime.'-Day Dreamer Thoughts; 'Beautifully told, engaging and a damn fine crime story which does not need to resort to extreme over-the-top action sequences to keep the reader's attention.'-Grab This Book
