This is character driven police procedural set in small town Norway, along the lines of Wallander or Beck It places realistic human characters at the core of a criminal investigation the discovery of a dead body juxtaposed alongside everyday domestic concerns A meticulously crafted criminal plot runs in parallel to the events in Chief Inspector William Wisting s personal life But Wisting is not the typical melancholic, self destructive fictional detective, and this is not a book about the bleak extremes of the human soul Which is why the title doesn t quite suit it As the tenth book in the Wisting series, Ordeal comes with a fully developed cast and a useful previously on intro at the front A relatively simple missing persons investigation in his district becomes muchcomplicated when it develops links to other police districts and parallel enquiries The pleasingly detailed routines of Wisting s investigation are shadowed by his rising concern that a miscarriage of justice is in process and how he reacts to that troubling scenario, in the face of concerted opposition from his colleagues becomes the main theme of a multi faceted story.Refreshingly free from implausible action sequences, Ordeal also doesn t delve into particularly explicit sex or violence, nor does it aim for an atmosphere of high tension The plot is intriguing and intelligent, not driven by pulse pounding suspense It s written in crisp, clear, no nonsense language which eschews the bitter emotional chill and the stark significance of the landscape so often utilised by Nordic writers Very matter of fact and understated.In truth, I probably prefer a bitgrit and grime than Ordeal provides But it s an extremely well constructed mystery with a knotty moral conundrum at its core, and it held my attention throughout So while I m not rushing off to read the other nine Wisting books, I d be happy to pick up another on a quiet afternoon.8 10There s adetailed version of this review, and stacks about other crime thrillers at The Nordic Noir genre has brought a sense of realism to the crime fiction world that I have high regard for, with its appreciation for the daily grind behind so much of police work and its wider social and political commentary In Ordeal, Lier Horst brings a tale of everyday life in a neighbourhood which is reassuringly ordinary and chimes with readers Combining the rigour and stringency of a police procedural with humane investigators, Ordeal exposes the darker element of an ever changing society and Wisting understands that both people, including police personal, and procedures can be fatally flawed.Ordeal is the fifth of the William Wisting novels to be translated into English and sees Wisting aged fifty five, a widowed man, father to two adult twins and soon to become a grandfather Wisting is an upstanding and earnest policeman and along with high standards for his work he makes time for his family and colleagues and has risen through the ranks to become Chief Inspector of CID for Larvik Police Thankfully free of the neuroses that plague so many of the Nordic Noir crime fighters he has a keen social awareness and a refreshingly normal relationship with both women and alcohol A career policeman he may be but Wisting is not blinkered to the darker side of human nature and his understanding and acceptance that humans err and his job is evolving constantly is fundamental to the man.Ordeal sees Wisting under fire from his superiors with the six month old disappearance case of taxi driver Jens Hummel remaining unsolved and a thinly veiled newspaper article implying substandard work by the police force has upped the ante When the taxi, without Hummel, is recovered at an isolated barn things seem no clearer and it is former investigative journalist daughter, Line, who by chance presents Wisting with the first clue Raisingcomplications as the case unravels Wisting discovers a web of intrigue which involves a murder case 100 miles away, an imminent trial and a long established narcotics trade in his own home town When his discoveries threaten to derail a long considered closed case in a neighbouring town, the dissenting voice of the Chief of Police grows increasingly louder as Wisting threatens to make an awful lot of enemies amongst his colleagues in the force Attempting to keep an eight months pregnant Line out of the equation, Wisting must simultaneously head off a possible miscarriage of justice.William Wisting considers every new piece of information and it is his ability to stand back from the eye of the storm and evaluate is intrinsic to his success and it is patently obvious that Jorn Lier Horst himself has occupied a prominent role in the force His invaluable insights and emphasis on the interpretation of a crime scene as opposed to simply the physical evidence that it holds is just one of numerous examples It is these satisfying nuggets of information and his willingness to embrace new investigation methods and technologies that are central to Ordeal Interestingly in the novel Wisting spends much of his time waiting the outcome of routine tests and the cross over between what the investigator alone can offer and the less subjective evidence is highlighted brilliantly Likewise, the delicate balance between the formal police role and the need to present a human face whilst never allowing it to detract from the leadership of the investigation was intelligently made.The meaty sub plots ensure readers maintain constant engagement with the storyline, from Line s pregnancy fears to Wisting s relationship with former girlfriend Suzanne and the overtones which colleague Christine appears to be making This adds an element of frisson to the proceedings and alongside personal matters, the evolving challenges facing the police force are frequently brought into the light, reduced resources being central to this Wisting recognises that the attitude of the public to the police force has hardened, people have becomeremote from each other and he appreciates the demands that face public prosecutor Christine acting as a go between for the rank and file and the conflicting managers of the force who demand results.Whilst Lier Horst may not bring the gung ho action packed shoot outs common in so much of crime fiction, he packs an equally powerful punch with his pragmatism, intelligence and understanding of the minutiae which so much of crime fighting relies on Jorn Lier Horst runs rings around his readers and even the most hardened crime fiction reader won t see the denouement coming Prepare to be bamboozled and blindsided With its subtle social commentary and reflections on how the job has changed Wisting sensitively explored and with a poignant parting shot, Jorn Lier Horst has one final sting in the tail to leave readers with a bittersweet aftertaste 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.The two page pr cis at the start of the novel introducing readers to the William Wisting character serves wonderfully as a handy guide to his police career and personal life which ensures that Ordeal can be read as a standalone However, I sawthan enough here to tell me that Lier Horst and the admirable William Wisting will be making a repeat appearance on my reading list With four novels already published in the series I will have plenty to keep me occupied ahead of the next release A wonderfully fulfilling novel, with ingenious plotting and an understanding of just what it take to be a successful investigator, this is splendid stuff . Nordic Noir is a thing at the moment some brilliant books arriving on our doorstep and Ordeal was such a book distinctly atmospheric, with its own peculiar vibe I enjoyed it very much.A great mix of police procedural and intensley intriguing character study, Jorn Lier Horst weaves a clever and perfectly paced tale around his main protagonists and has a clear and descriptive eye for interpersonal relationships that allows the reader to fully absorb into their world.The mystery element is expertly done, Ordeal is light on action, heavy on authenticity, a quietly addictive read that keeps you turning those pages I have a fondness for crime fiction with real soul, coming from writers that know how to engage and hold attention as the author did here, Ordeal is very much its own thing and that was the draw for me.It has been said that it has all been done before and that is probably true but often with this type of novel it is not so much the basics of the story but how it is executed, how a particular writer brings his or her own particular creative spirit to the table in the case of Ordeal I loved the sense of it and it was a darn good yarn to boot.If you are a fan of all things Nordic Noir then you will love this Sometimes it really is that simple.Recommended. In the latest William Wisting novel, Horst takes the reader on another wonderful adventure, where the law and justice meet, if only for a moment After months of no leads on the case of a missing taxi driver and his vehicle, Wisting is forced to push it to the side Juggling work and the potential of the early stages of a new relationship, Wisting must also focus on his daughter, Line, who is eight months pregnant and has just returned to raise her child alone When Line meets an old school friend, Sofie Lund, they rekindle the acquaintance, which leads to a pact of mutual assistance in all areas related to single motherhood When Sofie reveals that she is living in her grandfather s old home, Line isthan happy to help her sort things out, which includes getting into an old safe in the basement, the contents of which prove highly suspect Along with the discovery, Sofie must also admit that her grandfather, Frank Mandt, is a notorious criminal and smuggler from decades past, a mark she wishes to scrub from her life Along with a stack of money and a pile of cassettes in the safe, Line and Sofie discover an old revolver Choosing the high road, Line takes it to her father to discard, though police procedure is to run ballistics tests before disposing of anything These tests tie the gun to a shooting on New Year s Eve and an airtight trial set to begin the following week Following some independent leads, Wisting and his team stumble upon an old barn and locate the missing taxi therein When he receives the ballistic information on the gun and a property search reveals that Frank Mandt is tied to both, clues begin to fall into place, though a motive remains elusive or the proper timeline to have committed the crimes As the investigation progresses, a body is discovered, though it is still a mystery as to who might be the murderer, with Mandt having no known reason to kill either victim TheWisting learns of the gun s place at the scene of the New Year s murder, the deeper he digs, even as he is cautioned from messing with the case before the courts Wisting cannot ignore the call for justice, even if it contradicts all that fills boxes of evidence and witness statements With the case pushing him in many directions and Line set to have her baby, William Wisting has little time for questions, but will not rest until the real killer is caught Another wonderful addition to the William Wisting series that is sure to garner Horstfans.While there is no shortage of good crime fiction available today, Horst not only competes with other authors, but excels at his craft His place amongst other Scandinavian writers is strengthened by the clear and precise prose he offers, alongside a story that keeps the reader wondering from one page to the next Character development is continuous, though it does not take away from the story as a whole Wisting is a complex character and one who will remain ever evolving throughout the series, which has reached its tenth instalment Without trying to draw parallels between Wisting and Harry Hole or Joona Linna, there is surely a strong characteristic that binds these three men, all of whom seek justice and find their own way to deliver it to the public, in their respective authors ways Horst should be applauded for his hard work and, truth be told, stellar delivery, even with the novel being written in Norwegian That a novel can hold such strength while going through the translation process speaks volumes about its calibre.Kudos, Mr.Horst for another stellar piece of work I found myself wondering where things were going from the get go Now then, if only we could find a way to get the earlier novels translated into English for me to enjoy.Like hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at SWEDISH REVIEW Blindg ng r den f rsta boken jag har l st i William Wisting serien och trots att det r bok 10 s hade jag inga problem med att h nga med i handlingen Jag kom att gilla William Wisting och hans dotter redan fr n b rjan Jag tyckte att de hade en v ldigt fin relation och jag r nyfiken p Lines situation d hon r gravid och pappan till barnet r en amerikansk polis som bor i Amerika Jag m ste verkligen l sa de tidigare b ckerna f r att f reda p varf r han var i Norge och arbetade och hur de tr ffades.Handlingen var intressant, en f rsvunnen taxif rare, ett mord och ett upphittat vapen som har kopplingar med varandra Jag gillade verkligen hur b de William och Line r involverade i fallet p olika s tt och hur slumpm ssiga m ten och handlingar till slut ger svar p g tan med vad som k nde med taxichauff ren Jens Hummel.Boken r oerh rt v lskriven och sp nnande att l sa och jag tyckte att slutet i r tteg ngssalen r otroligt bra Tack till Lind Co f r recensionexemplaretENGLISH REVIEW Ordeal is the first book I have read in the William Wisting series and, despite this being book, 10 didn t I have any problems getting into the story Instead, I found myself instantly liking both William Wisting and his daughter Line I thought that they had a very loving relationship and I was curious about Line s situation being pregnant and the dad is a cop from America who is still living there I really need to read the previous book to find out why he was in Norway and how they met.The story is interesting, a missing taxi driver, a murder and a found weapon that have connections with each other I liked that both William and Line were involved in the case in different kinds of ways and thanks to random meetings and events finally the mystery with the missing taxi driver will be resolved.The book is well written and engrossing and I think the ending in the courtroom is incredibly good I liked this book very much and I will definitely readbooks in this series Thanks to Lind Co for the review copy 3.5 stars and a wider plot than in the usual Wisting But I rounded it up for the baby Ingrid s birth It s always the best days of all when the babies come It is to me.William is pushed a farther than usual inquiry even within a homicide tangent to a missing case Because these bad guys are rather cabal length and wide as opposed to the random local inebriate And there is a new character friend of Line who is an old prime school buddy and she s interesting and owns a recently deceased mob chief Grandpa Who has left her a bundle and a mansion.Some of these Norway perps getting caught just don t ring true to me, regardless of the smooth series Of course, they probably equate to equal real desserts Hardly And you never hear of them again after the confession Trial Sentence But beyond that larger crime picture come on that girl who was hitting the registers for herself at Suzanne s place What thief with that kind of calculated and reasoned method would explain it and then say she would pay back the money taken After all that time of personal increase too Fiction indeed , , , fans Horst , , , , ,, , ,, , , , , , , , ,, , , , , , ,Horst,
