9780099535843: Bad Intentions (Inspector Sejer)

An outstanding psychological crime novel from Karin Fossum: when a body surfaces in a lake Inspector Sejer must uncover a dark secret of betrayal and paranoia.
Early one September three friends spend the weekend at a remote cabin by Dead Water Lake. With only a pale moon to light their way, they row across the water in the middle of the night. But only two of them return.

When the body of the third friend is discovered, Inspector Sejer is put in charge of the investigation. He is troubled by the apparent suicide and has an overwhelming sense that the surviving pair has something to hide. Weeks pass without further clues and then, in a nearby lake, the body of another teenage boy floats to the surface.

From the Back Cover:

"An intimate study of broken lives that showcases Fossum’s poet past." —Bloomberg

In this chilling addition to the internationally best-selling Inspector Konrad Sejer series, the detective must face down his memories and fears as he investigates the deaths of two troubled young men. The first victim, Jon Moreno, was getting better after a mysterious guilt had driven him to a nervous breakdown one year earlier. His psychiatrist said so, as did his new friend at the hospital, Molly Gram, with her little-girl-lost looks. So when he drowns in Dead Water Lake, Sejer hesitates to call it a suicide.

Then the corpse of another young man is found, a Vietnamese immigrant. And Sejer begins to feel his age weigh on him. Does he still have the strength to pursue the elusive explanations for human evil? A harrowing, masterfully wrong mystery from the celebrated Karin Fossum.

“Fascinatingly readable and very cleverly done.” —Colin Dexter, author of the Inspector Morse series

Karin Fossum’s Inspector Sejer series has been published in thirty-three countries. Her honors include a Gumshoe Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller. She lives in a small town in southeastern Norway.
