    Wonderfully presented

    The book concerns the effect on a married couple's discovery of a dead boy during a walk. Inspector Sejer's investigation adds to the boiling pot. Karin Fossum writes so smoothly and masterfully in presenting the psychology of the crime and its impact.

    Karin Fossum books are the best. recommended.

    I have read all of Karin Fossum books that are available. I look forward to new releases. If you like mystery, this is it.

    mostly suspensful but bad plot

    This author delivers suspence and developes all the characters to look suspect. However, when the stories goes into how the pedophiler snatched up a 7yr old victim and what he does with him. I didn't want to read further. I love a good, page-turning thriller but NOT when it involves the victims being children. For that reason, I give this book two stars.

    Like an invigorating cold shower...

    Spare, restrained and understated, this Norwegian author's writing style evokes the glacial aridity of a Scandinavian winter, in stark contrast to the more grotesque and florid motives attributed to several of the suspects. The plot is embroidered with the requisite red herrings in such a way as to make the story engaging and interesting, although the denouement devolves to a stunningly mundane conclusion - another striking contrast.

    There are a couple of awkward passages in which I got the feeling that the translator had failed to properly capture the tenor of the characters' conversations, but that didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of this mystery. It is a bracing relief from the steamier, more overheated entries in this genre on current best seller lists.
