The Cabin (The Cold Case Quartet Book 2) by Jørn Lier Horst. Anne Bruce (Translator)

Book blurb

15 years ago, Simon Meier walked out of his house and was never seen again.

With no leads, the case quickly ran cold. Until now.

Because one day ago, politician Bernard Clausen died. And in his cabin on the Norwegian coast, police make a shocking discovery.

Boxes of bank notes, worth millions of dollars. Collecting dust.

Chief Inspector William Wisting thinks it could link to Meier’s disappearance.

But solving both cases will mean working with an old adversary, and delving into a dark underworld – which leads closer to home than he could have imagined . . .

My thoughts

Just the sort of story I enjoy reading.

Set in Norway we have the return of Chief Inspector Wisting who is asked to lead a ‘hush-hush’ investigation when a lot of money – millions of Kroner – is found at the lake retreat of a well known politician who has recently died. He is to find out where the money came from.

Wisting puts together a small group of people, including his daughter Line, to help him.

Meanwhile the cold case team is looking into the case of Simon – a young man who disappeared, presumed dead, but whose body was never found. Adrian Stiller is in charge of the cold case investigation.

The two cases have coinciding elements and a letter – an anonymous tip off from the cold case – brings Wisting and Stiller’s investigations together.

Meanwhile, Line’s checking out various leads were her father doesn’t want to make obvious there is a police investigation going on.

As the threads unravel and lead to the truth about where the money came from and what happened to Simon, Line is attacked. She has obviously been targeted and has been brought to the attention of some very nasty villains.

This is a really good, very well written Police procedural with a twist. With well drawn characters and terrific plot. It is well paced and, as the storyline goes on, becomes a taut and gripping read. A very satisfying read which I thoroughly enjoyed.

This was my last read of 2019 and an excellent book to finish the year with.

Thanks
