Jørn Lier Horst & Thomas Enger

Jørn Lier Horst (b. 1970) and Thomas Enger (b. 1973) are the internationally bestselling Norwegian authors of the William Wisting and Henning Juul series respectively.

Jørn Lier Horst first rose to literary fame with his No. 1 internationally bestselling William Wisting series. A former investigator in the Norwegian police, Horst imbues all his works with an unparalleled realism and suspense. To date, Horst has authored two crime fiction series for adults and two crime fiction series for younger readers, both of which are the most popular children’s book series in their respective age categories.

Thomas Enger is the journalist-turned-author behind the internationally acclaimed and bestselling Henning Juul series. Enger’s trademark has become a darkly gritty voice paired with key social messages and tight plotting. Besides writing fiction for both adults and young adults, Enger also works as a music composer.

Death Deserved is Jørn Lier Horst & Thomas Enger’s first co-written novel and the first installment in a suspense series that combines the very best of both authorships.

She tries to call her closest superior, Alexander Blix, not yet wanting to involve anyone else in the police. But before Blix has time to call her back, Kovic is shot and killed in her own home. It appears to be an outright execution. And in the apartment below, Blix’s daughter Iselin narrowly escapes the fate of becoming the killer’s next victim.

Four days later, Blix and crime journalist Emma Ramm are locked inside an interrogation room, seated across from The National Criminal Investigation Service. Blix has shot and killed a man, and Ramm saw it all happen. In the hospital, Iselin’s life hangs in the balance. Blix no longer knows who among his closest allies he can trust. Worse, he doesn’t know if Iselin will pull through. And not even Blix himself is certain that he killed the right man.
