The summer cottages are closed and peace is settling over the coast of Vestfold, but the autumn fog conceals evil deeds. In the novel 'Closed for Winter', William Wisting has a new case to solve during the off-season. 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.

I can do that from the other telephone.’ Wisting heard him keying in the number at the other end, followed by the voice on an automatic answer phone. ‘No,’ Arnesen stated. ‘Might there have been a road accident?’ ‘I’ll find out. What’s his name, other than Ottar?’ ‘Ottar Mold. He hasn’t worked for me for very long. To be quite honest, I’m not sure if I’ll keep him on after his probationary period.’ ‘Why not?’ ‘There

They discussed individual points before coming to an agreement. ‘Have we made contact with Thomas Rønningen?’ she wanted to know. ‘No. He lives in Bærum. I’ve instructed the police there to drive to his house but haven’t heard back from them yet.’ ‘Do you think the press know about his involvement yet?’ Christine enquired. ‘That his cottage is the crime scene?’ ‘I don’t know,’

As well as a wide bed, it was furnished with a writing desk and high-backed winged armchair. Two large windows overlooked the sea.

She located the hot water tank underneath the worktop and switched it on, but
