What you need to know before your trail

Katharina went missing twenty-four years ago.

Each year on the anniversary of her disappearance Chief Inspector William Wisting visits her husband, the man he could never help.

He re-reads her files, searching for the answer he could never find. The code he could never solve. Until now.

This year is going to be different. Another woman is missing. And so is Katharina’s husband. Wisting has to find him, but is he rescuing a dear friend, or playing a deadly game?

Travel Guide

Travel BookTrail style to Norway

There’s a wide area of travel in this book – From Larvik and across to Oslo. Plenty of snowy motorways, cars in journeys and very cold weather as well as cold cases. Following traces of a case into the past is not easy, but it’s fascinating.


Larvik is known as the hometown of Thor Heyerdahl. It is also home to Bøkeskogen, the northernmost beech tree forest in the world. Norway’s only natural mineral water spring, Farriskilden is located here too.

Norway and the statue of limitations

“The statute of limitations on murder was abolished by a change in law on 1 July 2014, causing any murders committed after 1 July 1989 to have no statute of limitations. This led to the national police force implementing a new investigation group for old cases called the “Cold Case” group.”
