A SUNDAY TIMES CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH
It happened in the quiet town of Larvik.
A severed head displayed on a stake. A crime so dark only one man is capable of solving it: Police Inspector William Wisting.
Before long, more bodies are found. Media frenzy sweeps the locals into panic. And when Wisting's investigation leads him to a deadly underground crime ring, he fears the whole town may be in danger.
But at the heart of it is just one man: The Night Man.
Their elusive leader. The man Wisting must find if he wants to stop the murders.
That is, if The Night Man doesn't get to him first . . .
