Default ksh scripts

I want to help seed linux and bsd to the world. So I have set up a seedbox for linux/bsd torrent files.

Code:
#!/bin/ksh

# Fetch Debian torrent

wget -r -l 10 -A *.torrent -nd -P /home/pi/torrent/debian 
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/8.5.0

exit
From command line i dont get it to work as a script file.
ksh debian.torent
wget: missing url

If i only run it as a command it works and download 100s of debian torrent in a few minutes.
Code:
 wget -r -l 10 -A *.torrent -nd -P /home/pi/torrent/debian 
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/8.5.0
I have mange to make similar script in bash work in before, what can I do to make it work in ksh?

(updated script to /bin/ksh, from /usr/bin/ksh, still does not work)

Is your "wget" command spread over two lines of your file? If so, you must use a backslash "\" escape character as the last character on the first of the two lines.

(It actually escapes the unseen new-line character which follows in the ASCII file.)
