Publisher's Summary

Viggo Hansen was a man nobody ever noticed, even though he lived in the midst of a close-knit community. His death doesn't hit the headlines, but there is something about the case that catches the attention of William Wisting's journalist daughter, Line, and she decides to write a newspaper article with a different twist for the festive season: the portrait of a completely anonymous and obscure person whose death goes unremarked and unmourned.

Surprise Christmas Gift

I have been a fan of this author since his first novel featuring Inspector Vistig, but this latest one is definitely my favorite. The summary sounded wholesome, warm festive tale so I took a chance. So very glad I did! Completely unexpected story of 2 dead men turned into a totally spellbinding drama of international killer hiding, and continuing to kill in Norway and Sweden after leaving the US. The manhunt began with American FBI assisting local police. I believe this is first Scandinavian novel to create an international crime hunt. Fantastic novel, would recommend it unreservedly to all readers who appreciate the writing of Henning Mankell, Thomas Reiner, Michael Connelly. When is Horst's next novel due?

Interesting--And Some Predictability

If you could sum up The Caveman in three words, what would they be?

It was predictable that Lina would end up caught in the web of the active murder investigation. If you've listened/read other in the series, this seems to be a pattern. I don't like patterns from one book to the other...isn't that what interesting writing is? No pattern and no predictability? In any case--it was a good listen. I like the characters--and the story.
I am hoping, however, that Horst becomes less predictable int he future.
