Illvilje Ill Will
The Cold Case Quartet #3
A cold case heats up as the body of a young woman is found in the forest. She’s been killed and dismembered in a manner that’s eerily reminiscent of serial killer Tom Kerr’s signature m.o. But Kerr is currently serving his fourth year behind bars and couldn’t possibly have committed the murder. Everything points instead to the man the press named The Other - Kerr’s never-found partner.
Adrian Stiller prepares a reconstruction in which Kerr will lead the police to the remains of an old victim. The grave is in Eftang and Wisting is put in charge of security. His daughter Line has been recruited to document it all. But the reconstruction goes terribly wrong and when Kerr escapes, Wisting suddenly finds himself being made the scapegoat as both Kerr and The Other are free once more.
“Pure evil in a solid Wisting crime novel. /…./ Jørn Lier Horst delivers credible crime fiction as always.”
“With Ill Will, Jørn Lier Horst claims the number one spot on the winner’s podium. /…/ Ill Will is the most brutal and ruthless novel penned by Horst to date. A ruthlessness that Horst delivers with elegance. /…/ The interplay between father and daughter, the police man and the journalist, is once again brilliantly portrayed.”
“Nerve-racking. /…/ The novel is incredibly thrilling and Lier Horst narrates the plot closely and with humanity. Another blessing of Horst’s writing is that he spares the reader various chronological and literary device leaps. It’s simply put a joy to read a story that begins with the beginning, and ends with the end.”
