‘Resurfaced’ published in Norway
William Wisting has entered the second week of his summer holiday. He observes from the sidelines how a local missing persons case grows into a national news story. Agnete Roll has now been missing for three days, and no clues can be found.
Even as the disappearance makes headlines, Wisting receives a mysterious letter containing a set of numbers and nothing else. He connects them to an old case code for a murder, one he wasn’t personally assigned to. One summer night in 1999, 17-year-old Tone Vaterland was killed on her way home from work. The case was quickly solved and the perpetrator sentenced and sent to prison. The case has nearly been lost to memory, but recent events now reveal connections that weren’t visible twenty years ago.
The letter is only the first in a series, all pointing to there being another truth behind the case then the one found by the police. Wisting will have to search for the sender as well as the true facts – but far from everyone are happy to have him shed new light on the past.
Resurfaced is the fourth and final installment in Jørn Lier Horst’s Cold Case Quartet.
