I read this years ago, and it was one of the those mysteries that seemed so very dark--the setting in the cold northern forested mountains, in the gloom of people's lives. It did help to introduce me to a vein of fiction that I have been following ever since. It almost seems as though Scandinavian fiction is an acquired taste: perhaps a little harsh on first exposure, but gradually one develops an insatiable thirst for the unique flavor they impart...For those that find the harsh winter landscapes irresistible, one must recommend the accessible Henning Mankell novels from Sweden, and the Erlendur Sveinsson novels from Iceland.

I just recently started reading Ms. Fossum's book, so I'm not reading them in order of release, but don't think that is a necessity. After reading the Indian Bride, I was hooked. This book was more on the edge of your seat, especially the first and last chapters. I think mystery readers will like this series and I intend to read them all.

Grabs you right from the start. A young girl is found dead and completely naked except for a jacket gently placed to cover her.  It’s a small town where everyone knows each other.  This is the type of girl everyone loved and could not imagine anyone wanting to hurt, let alone murder her.  A once very athletic girl has a change in her personality and becomes a bit withdrawn, and no one knows why, not even her boyfriend.  But nothing that anyone would want to see her dead.  Inspector Sejer is the man to solve the crime, bit by bit and piece by piece. Why is it that the person who took the time to cover the body does not report it to the police?  Was it the killer?  Does the killer have a conscience?  Was it an accident?  But her body was carefully posed and left by the water.  If it wasn’t the killer, why didn’t the person who found her report it? So many characters of all kinds keeps you guessing who could have done such a thing.  Short chapters keep you turning pages to see what happens next and who did it.

This is the second of the Inspector Sejer series translated to English. I enjoy the writing and look forward to the endings - I like the suspense generated. She's an excellent storyteller. I intend to read the rest in the series.

I really enjoy Scandinavian Authors. It was an easy read and held my interest all the way through. I like the small town feel to the police department and there characters. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Wish that the First book was out in English!! I would recommend this book and also books by Camilla Lackberg.

Mystery lovers must read this wonderful inspector Sejer mystery. So elegant and subtle yet always keeping the reader on edge. A compelling page turner that propelled me to buy and read whatever is available by Karin Fossum without regrets so far.

I am surprised to see I am the first to do a review on the book.. I thought it was a good book. The plot was well written although the beginning had me a little worried if you read it you will know what I mean.. But the book turned out to be good and kept you guessing until the end but it was one of those books you were like ah ha I knew it was that person or that it was going to end like that. But I would still recommend it..

Claustrophobic. Has its moments but the language is strange, I'd guess because it is a translation. I will read more of this series.

All of Fossums books are great....this one especially! The only thing I regret is that her books are too short. I would enjoy reading a 400pager by Fossum. She is unique.
