Quick Hits 152 – Intelligence Veteran Reviews Wisting (2019)

Are serial killers terrorists?

A recent Norwegian series called Wisting looked at a serial killer and a joint FBI/local police investigation. Borealis reviews the series looking at two main issues: the link between serial killing and terrorism, and what happens when multinational forces have to collaborate to solve a case.


Empathetic, meticulous and relentless – the only thing to escape Larvik detective William Wisting in his hunt for Norway’s most notorious criminals is a happy family life. And when two mysterious deaths interrupt Wisting’s Christmas, it is the beginning of a showdown with the deadliest killer of them all.
