Overview

He Who Fears the Wolf (Inspector Sejer Series #3) by Karin Fossum

Inspector Sejer is hard at work again, investigating the brutal murder of a woman who lived alone in the middle of the woods. The chief suspect is another loner, a schizophrenic recently escaped from a mental institution. The only witness is a twelve-year-old boy, overweight, obsessed with archery, and a resident at a home for delinquents. When a demented man robs a nearby bank and accidentally takes the suspect hostage, the three misfits are drawn into an uneasy alliance.

Shrewdly, patiently, as is his way, Inspector Sejer confronts a case where the strangeness of the crime is matched only by the strangeness of the criminals, and where small-town prejudices warp every piece of information he tries to collect. Fossum once again provides extraordinary insight into marginalized lives and richly evokes the atmosphere she captured so brilliantly in Don't Look Back.

This was a good one-the characters were strangely likeable and there was some dark humor among the villans. I enjoyed learning more about Insp. Sejer.

Its amazing how good of a writer Fossum is. She makes you want to keep reading even when nothing is actually happening in the story. This is a very simply but elegant tale. And I can't wait for her next book.

It was so well written. Karin Fossum showed her talent in how she got her main characters to build a realtionship with each other when they couldn't accomplish this in their own real worlds.

I loved reading this book. This is one of my favorites from detective Sejer series. The dialogues between the characters were super funny. Sometimes I couldn't stop laughing. Interesting plot and misterious characters. I strongly recommend this book.
