🥰 The Caveman (The William Wisting Mysteries Book 4) by Jørn Lier Horst
(Translated from the Norwegian by Anne Bruce)

Jørn Lier Horst is my favorite Norwegian crime writer. His books are more police procedurals than crime thrillers. Detective Wisting is a methodical and likeable investigator. His daughter Line, a journalist, often gets involved which adds a nice touch to the plot. This is the 4th book to be translated into English. It was the first book in the series that I read. They do not need to be read in order.
