Overview

The Water's Edge (Inspector Sejer Series #8) by Karin Fossum, Jane Kirby

Reinhardt and Kristine Ris, a married couple, are out for a Sunday walk when they discover the body of a boy and see the figure of a man limping away. They alert the police, but not before Reinhardt, to Kristine’s horror, kneels down and takes photographs of the dead child with his cell phone. Inspectors Konrad Sejer and Jakob Skarre begin to make inquiries in the little town of Huseby. But then another boy disappears, and an explanation seems more remote than ever. Meanwhile, the Rises’ marriage unravels as Reinhardt becomes obsessed with the tragic events and his own part in them.
The Water’s Edge is a riveting portrayal of a community in turmoil from Karin Fossum, Norway’s “Queen of Crime.” This e-book includes a sample chapter of THE MURDER OF HARRIET KROHN.

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.

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

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.

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.
