The Caveman by Jorn Lier Horst
Jorn Lier Horst
2017, Affirm Press
A neighbour of Detective William Wisting dies and remains undiscovered for four months. Wisting's daughter, a journalist, wishes to write a story on how this could happen in modern society and begins to investigate his life. Meanwhile a body is found in a Christmas tree lot which appears to be connected with a 1980s serial killer.
This is the first book I've read in this Scandinavian murder series, even though it's book four. I bought it at the airport and that's probably the best way to describe it. It's an airport book - extremely easily readable, fun and quick. The chapters are really short, even rivalling James Patterson (ok, maybe not that short). There were a couple of errors in the text, not sure if it's an error by the author or by the translator. Still, a fun quick read and definitely recommended.
