5.0 out of 5 stars Grounded In Reality, 14 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Closed for Winter (William Wisting Mystery Book 7) (Kindle Edition)
Jørn Lier Horst, is a Norwegian author of crime fiction and a former Senior Investigating Officer at Vestfold Police district. He tends to look into the psychology of working with crime, so that we can see a slice of how good police detectives think and act.

This is the second book translated into English, and the second I have read. The first book 'Dregs' was an exceptional thriller, and this book, 'Closed For Winter' is even better. I find some similarities in the writing style of Jorn Lier Horst to Henning Mankell, one of my favorite Scandinavian mystery writers.

Police Inspector William Wisting has returned to his job after taking a leave to get his mind back on track. His beloved wife had died, his son was in Afghanistan, and his last case was so emotionally exhausting and involved his daughter, Line, in a transitional way. Line is a journalist living in Oslo, and, at times, the lives of father and daughter don't jive.

Wisting is called late at night in the middle of winter to a murder scene at a summer cottage. It appears that a burglary has gone wrong. There are more cottages and more burglaries, that seem to set the stage for a group of thugs from Lithuania, who need and want money. At the same time, it appears a big multi-national drug operation is under way. And, to top off the complications, his daughter, Line has moved into a near by cottage. Burglaries and more murders follow, and this is a fascinating look into the increased crimes between the Scandinavian countries and their Baltic counterparts.

Police Inspector Wisting is one of those men who loves his profession, but also wants a private life. He is not a loner, and wants to enjoy the company of others. He is also a polished professional, experienced and knows his job. His intuition serves him well, and, he is always looking at the clues and wonders what is missing. An exceptional murder mystery.
