Bunnfall Dregs

William Wisting #6

During the course of just one summer week, four left feet wash ashore on Stavern’s beach. Are the severed limbs the consequence of a shipwreck or something much more sinister? William Wisting finds himself in deeper waters than ever before as he’s embroiled in a mystery involving convicted killers, missing people, and stay-behind operatives, not to mention a large quantity of unregistered weapons.


  • “Horst is an intelligent and often poetic writer. His storytelling is as measured and precise as his main character. So we hope to see more of William Wisting in the English language soon.”

    Crime Fiction Lover, UK

  • “Brilliant crime in deep waters.”

    Verdens Gang, Norway

  • “Yes indeed, Jørn Lier Horst has once more written a well-founded and tense crime novel, with space for both the expected and the downright surprising.”

    Aftenposten, Norway

  • “Another step closer to the Riverton Prize.”

    Østlands-Posten, Norway

  • “Many have known it for a long time, but now it ought to be acknowledged as a truth for all Norwegian readers of crime fiction: William Wisting is one of the great investigators in Norwegian crime novels. He can bear comparison with Thygesen, Sejer and Isaksen (in the best-selling novels of Jon Michelet, Karin Fossum and Unni Lindell).”
