"Ove Bakkerud, newly separated and extremely disillusioned, is looking forward to a final quiet weekend at his summer home before closing for winter but, when the tourists leave, less welcome visitors arrive. Bakkerud's cottage is ransacked by burglars. Next door he discovers the body of a man who has been beaten to death. Police Inspector William Wisting has witnessed grotesque murders before, but the desperation he sees in this latest murder is something new. Against his wishes his daughter Line decides to stay in one of the summer cottages at the mouth of the fjord. Wisting's unease does not diminish when they discover several more corpses on the deserted archipelago. Meanwhile, dead birds are dropping from the sky" --… (mer)

A book, a thriller like I like to read them. Interesting, with a quite complicated case, a solution that's not obvious akready when I'm half way. It was no problem to start with this book, even though it's not the first in the series.
I will happily continue with the rest of the books (in translation). ( )

Nærmer meg faretruende 'slutten' på bøkene om William Wisting... Håper Horst har planer om flere bøker! ( )

For me the key to the appeal of Scandinavian is manyfold:

1 - The unemotional nature of the detectives and their peculiar close relationship with death;

2 - The long dark winters (and the hot summers too) incoporated into the narrative;

3 - Bleak Scandinavian landscape which serves to mirror the thoughts of the characters;

4 - Incorporation of larger social issues into the narrative of police work.

Kenneth Branagh's playing Henning Mankell's detective Kurt Wallander in the BBC series is a good example of what I mean.

The Scandinavian Crime Fiction has consistently come up with great plotlines that are as cold and bleak as the locations in which they are set, but it's this sense of the other that sets them apart.

Crime writers can come up with any number of serial killers and paedophiles with ever sicker twists, but as long as they are situated in the usual urban cities (NY, London, etc), there will inevitably be a sense of dejavu.

The Scandinavian locations always takes me beyond plot and genre to the human condition. That's one of the main reasons for reading Scandinavian (Crime) Fiction.

"Closed For Winter" fails to deliver on this sense of dislocation. At times I felt I was reading another non-scandinavian novel...Talk about trade on their own stereotypes for one.

This time some of the abovementioned characteristics are absent (I won't tell you which ones...Check them out for yourself).

The east-european connection for one, failed to ilicit any kind of emotional response from me. On top of that it was poorly written. No sense of place and character was conveyed by the interplay between Wisting and the east-european characters. They were mere ciphers and not Men...

"Closed For Winter" was quite different in tone and quality writing when compared with "Dregs" ( see my review).

My main gripe with Horst's novels is that he gets so focused on the action and having the plot lines sort out right in the end that he forgets to work in the right amount of detail about the characters. My favorite mystery writers leave you feeling that you really know the main character, and that if you faced a line of people, you could pick them out, even without seeing some favorite gesture. With Wisting we know he looks perpetually tired, but that's not much basis to pick him out of a crowd. I suppose that tired eyes and a
gun at the shoulder go some way, but I really would like more. Especially in this novel, where the plot line keeps seeming to run its course and then somehow miraculously picks up and runs some more in a different direction. ( )
