Revue de presse

'Urban rather than natural settings are the stamping grounds of Jørn Lier Horst, whose Dregs (his first book to be published in English) is immensely impressive The writers career as a police chief has supplied a key ingredient for the crime fiction form: credibility. --Barry Forshaw, author of Nordic Noir

'Jørn Lier Horst demonstrates in Closed for Winter that he belongs to the premier division of Norwegian crime fiction.' --The Norwegian Book Club

Top class crime writing. --Sindre Hovdenakk, Verdens Gang

'Such a wonderful title! Can you not immediately sense that wistful end-of-season atmosphere, the unfamiliar chill in the air, the damp and the mist rolling in from the sea, the evenings drawing in? Autumnal daylight and earth-scented evenings. Very northern hemisphere, very evocative... It would make wonderful telly and perhaps it will.' --Bookoxygen

'This highly atmospheric novel sees Chief Inspector Wisting investigate an off-season burglary and a disturbing case of murder on the Norwegian coast of Vestfold. As ever, author Jørn Lier Horsts police background lends the novel a striking authenticity, with readers treated to the outstanding plotting and characterisation that typify this quality series. --The Petrona Prize judging panel

'Painstaking and swift, Closed for Winter is a piece of quality craftsmanship, with Horst meticulously bringing together an unexpectedly windy plot, highly intelligent characterizations and a delectably subtle noir mood to create a very engrossing crime novel.' --Edinburgh Book Review

Classic police procedural from an author who knows what he is doing ... I recommend that every fan of crime novels should dedicate some time to Jørn Lier Horst s writing. Make a pleasurable start with Closed for Winter. --Torbjørn Ekelund, Dagbladet

'Up there with the best of the Nordic crime writers.' --Marcel, The Times

Classic police procedural from an author who knows what he is doing ... I recommend that every fan of crime novels should dedicate some time to Jørn Lier Horst s writing. Make a pleasurable start with Closed for Winter. --Torbjørn Ekelund, Dagbladet

Présentation de l'éditeur

The summer cottages are closed and peace is settling over the coast of Vestfold, but the autumn fog conceals evil deeds. In the novel 'Closed for Winter', William Wisting has a new case to solve during the off-season. Ove Bakkerud, newly separated and extremely disillusioned, is looking forward to a final quiet weekend at his summer home before closing for winter but, when the tourists leave, less welcome visitors arrive. Bakkerud's cottage is ransacked by burglars. Next door he discovers the body of a man who has been beaten to death. Police Inspector William Wisting has witnessed grotesque murders before, but the desperation he sees in this latest murder is something new. Against his wishes his daughter Line decides to stay in one of the summer cottages at the mouth of the fjord. Wisting's unease does not diminish when they discover several more corpses on the deserted archipelago. Meanwhile, dead birds are dropping from the sky.

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. It is my understanding that these two books are in the middle of the series, but each book can be read as a stand alone. At the beginning of this book, the author gives a summary of the character and his family. This was helpful in understanding some past developments.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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Coinkydinks 11 février 2014
Par C.Wallace - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As I finished this book and thought about reviewing it, I felt that there were a couple of very “convenient” coinkydinks within. But this very morning an improbable coincidence happened to me. I won’t bore the reader with the details, but it did make me think that, indeed, highly improbable coinkydinks do pop up.

This novel is the story of Norwegian police Chief Inspector William Wisting. Wisting is called to the scene of a series of burglaries of several summer cottages. It’s fall and few still reside at the cottages, but there are valuables within. In the course of these burglaries a man, apparently one of the thieves, is killed, shot and clubbed to death. Wisting’s investigation reveals a connection with a ring of thieves based in Lithuania. Wisting journeys there, and the novel includes a fascinating description of Vilnius.

The writing is strong. Author Jorn Lier Horst is himself a veteran investigator for the Norwegian police, and his expertise is evident in this book. The Norwegian setting is skillfully drawn.

Once the reader accepts the coincidences at the heart of the matter, a great story emerges.

Great story - the story takes place in Norwaay. This is the 2nd book in this series to be translated into english. I understand that there are earlier books in the series that have not been translated, but I have not read them - I cannot read another language :( These 2 books are easy to follow though and are able to be read as stand alone books
This story begins with a break-in in a group of summer cottages. One man returns to the cottages to find that his cottage has been broken into. He goes next door to see if his neighbor has had a similar experience - and finds a dead body on the floor. This is where Inspector Wisting is called to the scene. The story is full of surprises and various plots ... and subplots. Wistings daughter is a Journalist and also discovers a body - when she breaks up with her boyfriend and takes time to stay in another cottage on the lake

I am an avid reader of Nordic crime novels. This author is very detailed in procedure as other reviewers have posted. I purchased this and "The
Hunting Dogs" , and found myself turning pages to finish both books. I didn't feel a "rush " that I get with other authors, Jussi Adler Olsen , Jo Nebo and Hennig Mankell. Just my taste.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Quite the opposite to "Dregs" 28 mars 2014
Par mpoppins - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
"Closed for Winter" is a second book written by J. L. Horst. In spite of negative reviews of "Dregs" I bought it and I was not sorry. I am very hard to please and it is but very seldom that I give 5 stars to a book (I did give 5 stars to "Dregs"). As I liked it immensely I ordered "Closed for Winter" then. To say that I was disappointed is to say nothing. The police couldn't pinpoint the culprit or the reason of so many birds dying though it was self evident. They were dumbfounded most of the time.
As a rule if there are several subplots it adds to the book merit. In this case it does the opposite. And to go to such lengths to mask the personality of one of the victims is a big stretch. The police are tired and clueless practically till the very end.
Neither did I like the description of Lithuania. Maybe the author is right and I am wrong: I was there twice when it was part of the USSR. It looked like any western European city. Here the author gives a very gloomy picture of Vilnius: poverty, peddlers in each and every street and so on. I beg to differ, though I can't be 100% sure.
So the bottom line is: it is a far cry from the first book. I do hope the third book will be as great as " Dregs".
