Publisher's Summary

The summer cottages are closed, and peace is settling over the coast of Vestfold, but the autumn fog conceals evil deeds. Ove Bakkerud’s cottage is ransacked by burglars, and next door he discovers the body of a man who has been beaten to death. Police Inspector William Wisting is uneasy; the desperation he sees in this latest murder is troubling. Meanwhile dead birds are dropping from the sky.

A Fun Listening Experience

I enjoy listening to audio-books by Norwegian, Jorn Lier Horst. My first book by Horst was "Dregs" which I thought was a very good debut. This second book is just as enjoyable, with some reservations. You can listen to these books in any order even though there is a recurring character, Inspector Wisting. I have researched Horst and discovered that he was previously a senior investigating officer in Norway. That makes sense because his stories appear to have lots of police procedural knowledge. I appreciate the numerous details about life in Norway. I see a great career for Horst and will use a credit for the next book. The narrator did a good job.

My reservations include the realization that sometimes the police are slow at solving obvious situations (it involves birds), there are quite a few coincidences, and the Norwegian names and places require that I concentrate or listen to some sections twice.

I ended up walking 2 extra miles today so that I could get to the end of the story. It was well worth it as there was a fun twist I wasn't expecting.

Good solid story.

Not as dramatic as Jo Nesbo nor as funny as jussi Adler Olsen but still a good solid believable detective story.
