Inspector Sejer is on the trail of a violent killer in small-town Norway in this gripping thriller from acclaimed crime writer Karin Fossum.
Gunder Jomann, a quiet, middle-aged man from a peaceful Norwegian community, thinks his life has been made complete when he returns from a trip to India a married man. But on the day his Indian bride is due to join him, he is called to the hospital to his sister's bedside. The local taxi driver sent instead to meet the bride at the airport returns without her. Then the town is shocked by the news of an Indian woman found bludgeoned to death in a nearby meadow. 

Inspector Sejer and his colleague Skarre head the murder inquiry, cross-examining the townsfolk and planting seeds of suspicion in a community which has always believed itself to be simple, safe and trusting. For what can only have been an unpremeditated and motiveless act of violence, everyone is guilty until proven innocent.

Book Description:

Published in hardcover by Harcourt, 2007, 978-0-15-101182-7/0-15-101182-6

From the Back Cover:

A Washington Post Book World Best Book of the Year

 

When the battered body of a woman is found on the day Gunder Jomann’s bride is due to arrive from India, the town of Elvestad is stunned—no one can believe that one of them could be capable of such a brutal murder. But Inspector Sejer understands that no one is completely innocent—not the café owner who knows too much, the girl who wants to be a star witness, or the bodybuilder with no outlet for his terrible strength.

 

"This new mystery out of Norway is so heart-stoppingly suspenseful that it was all I could do to keep myself from catapulting instantly to the bang-up final chapter." --Richard Lipez, The Washington Post Book World

"[It] takes . . . subtle thought to interpret a cafe owner's surliness or a schoolgirl's eagerness to be a murder witness. What it takes is a writer like Fossum, able to see into the soul of an entire village." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

 

KARIN FOSSUM’s novels featuring Inspector Sejer have been translated into sixteen languages. The third in the series, When the Devil Holds the Candle, won the Gumshoe Award. She lives in a small town in southeastern Norway.
