Overview

The Indian Bride (Inspector Sejer Series #5) by Karin Fossum, Random House UK

When perpetual bachelor Gunder Jomann goes to India for two weeks and comes home married, the town of Elvestad is stunned. On the day the Indian bride is supposed to arrive, the battered body of a woman is found in a meadow on the outskirts of town. None of the "good people of Elvestad" can believe that anyone among them would be capable of such a brutal murder. But in his quiet, formal way, Inspector Konrad Sejer understands that good people can commit atrocious deeds, and that no one is altogether innocent—including the café owner who knows too much, the girl who wants to be a chief witness, and the bodybuilder with no outlet for his terrible strength.

Another brilliantly conceived, dark novel from one of Europe’s most successful crime writers.

The corpse of a battered woman is found near the town of Elvestad, Norway. Police Inspector Konrad Sejer is assigned to lead the investigation. The body is identified as Poona Jomann of India, the wife of tractor salesman Gunder, who just married the victim. Coincidently, an auto accident involving Gunder's sister kept him from meeting his new bride at the airport thus Poona was traveling by herself to their home.------------ Because of the degree of the battering, Sejer assumes a crime of passion of some sort happened so he concentrates on the townsfolk seeking a motive. He quickly learns that everyone who knows the fiftyish Gunder was stunned when he suddenly married as he was considered a lifetime bachelor by one and all. Still none of the residents accept that one of them is the killer as they prefer a random incident. However, Sejer begins to uncover potential suspects amongst the 2347 residents a few who might have a motive to commit such a horrific deed.-------------- THE INDIAN BRIDE is an excellent Norwegian police procedural that combines a great investigation with a vivid look at a small somewhat insular Norwegian village. The story line is fast-paced, but also enables the audience to understand life in Elvestad and how much an outsider the former Mumbai, India resident would have been if she lived. Karin Fossin provides a great whodunit that will lead readers to seek other translations of Inspector Sejer mysteries (see WHEN THE DEVIL HOLDS THE CANDLE).---------- Harriet Klausner

I am on my last thirty pages. I so hope that it won't be an unresolved ending. I have experienced that with a couple of other books from Karin. I have read and enjoyed all her books but I do believe it was THE CALLER that also left me with a feeling of the book just missing the end. I still had questions and that was very unsatisfying to me. That being said: I love her books and hopefully she will come out with more. The Inspector Seyer character is wonderful!. So REAL. Wish I could meet him.

This book's ending left me hanging. Many issues were left unresolved. I felt robbed. The story just stopped. Almost like the author had no energy left to finish thee job.

I did not particularly care for this novel because the ending was so unresolved - - it was disappointing and seemed unfair to the victim and well as to the suspects. Maybe it is this author's style as it is the only book of this series I have read. It will probably remain as such.
