This is an enjoyable book! I am reading all of Karin Fossum's books and am having a wonderful time. Her characters are unusual and easy to like even the bad ones. Her mysteries are interesting and unpredictable which is refreshing. She keeps you guessing...

Wonderfully written; excellent translation. A police procedural that spends most of its words on character development--and what interesting characters. There is no bad guy, just flawed people in untenable situations.

This is the second Karin Fossum mystery I have read. Her style of writing is moves along at a good pace, her characters are well developed and interesting - even if they are not likeable. The twists this story takes makes it difficult to predict 'who did it'. An engaging read.

Excellent read. One of the wonderful authors from Scandinavia.

This is the 2nd in the inspector sejer series and I have to admit that there is something about the way Fossum writes that gets me everytime. Her way of expressing the mental and psychological functions of the mind along with the emotional fragility of human beings makes her not an expert per say but a keen, reflective and sharp observer. She is really really sharp about the inner workings the human mind. I am already starting the 3rd book today.

#2 of Inspector Sejer series by Norwegian Karin Fossum. She writes about misfits in a way similar to Ruth Rendell. Errki escapes from the clinic and is in a bank when Morgan robs it and takes Errki hostage. Most of the book is about the interesting relationship between a misfit and a criminal. Also involved is a boy Kannick who left a boys' home with his bow and arrow. I won't give away any more of the plot, which is good reading.
