The Caveman, Paperback
2.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The Fourth William Wisting Mystery Only three houses away from the policeman's home, a man has been sitting dead in front of his television set for four months.

There are no indications that anything criminal has taken place.

Viggo Hansen was a man nobody ever noticed, even though he lived in the midst of a close-knit community.

His death doesn't hit the headlines, but there is something about the case that catches the attention of William Wisting's journalist daughter, Line, and she decides to write a newspaper article with a different twist for the festive season: the portrait of a completely anonymous and obscure person whose death goes unremarked and unmourned.

Review by

A man is found dead in front of his tv set. He has been dead 4 months, and no one missed him, even though he lived almost across the street from police inspector Wisting, our protagonist. Inspector Wisting's daughter, a journalist, decides to do a human interest story on the dead man's plight, using him as an example of the alienation and lack of connectiveness suffered by modern man.Initially it was thought that the man died a natural death. However, as events unfold, and other bodies are discovered, it becomes apparent that a murderer may be on the loose.I found this to be rather lackluster Scandicrime, despite its interesting premise and initial good start.2 1/2 stars
