Product description

Review

A good Nordic police procedural with well-drawn characters (Choice 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)

From the Inside Flap

Twenty-four years ago Katharina Haugen went missing. All she left behind was her husband Martin and a mysterious string of numbers scribbled on a piece of paper.

Every year on 9 October Chief Inspector William Wisting takes out the files to the case he was never able to solve. Stares at the code he was never able to crack. And visits the husband he was never able to help.

But now Martin Haugen is missing too.

As Wisting prepares to investigate a new missing persons case, he's visited by a detective from Oslo. Adrian Stiller is convinced Martin's involved in another disappearance of a young woman and asks Wisting to close the net around him.

But is Wisting playing cat and mouse with a dangerous killer or a grief-stricken husband who cannot lay the past to rest?

Set between the icy streets and dark forests of Norway, The Katharina Code is a heart-stopping story of one man's obsession with his coldest case.
