One of the books we’re busy preparing a review for is the English language debut of Norwegian author Jørn Lier Horst. Dregs follows detective William Wisting as he tries to work out where a severed left foot, washed up on the beach near the town of Stavern, came from. When more left feet start turning up, it becomes a murder investigation. The feet may be linked to the disappearances of several elderly people in the town – could they also be linked to a deeper, darker secret within the community?
Well, we certainly aren’t going to spoil it for you but we did locate this video trailer for the book. If you’re interested in Scandinavian crime fiction, it’ll be right down your street. There’s even a touch of that hard, black heavy metal Norway has become known for in the sound track. Let us know what you think. (Film by Nordsveenfoto.no)
