Riktor doesn?t like the way the policeman comes straight into the house without knocking. He doesn?t like the arrogant way he observes his home.The policeman doesn?t tell him why he?s there, and Riktor doesn?t ask. Because he knows he?s guilty of a terrible crime. But it turns out that the policeman isn?t looking for a missing person. He is accusing Riktor of something totally unexpected. Riktor doesn?t have a clear conscience, but this is a crime he certainly didn?t commit.

A journey into the mind of a psychotic person : Fossum dissects and analyses his
dark impulses , his rage and anger and forces the reader to understand his motives and mental state causing his cruelty .. the vulnerability of his victims ( the elderly) makes it more horrifying , very Nordic Noir indeed.

I loved this book. Definitely, Nordic Noir is not for the faint of heart but honestly Fossum's books are tame compared to many others. It's all just good creepy fun.

I've read this book by Karin Fossum and another titled The Murder of Harriet Krohn and will never read another one due to the subject matter. She's probably an excellent psychological, murder mystery author but the people and murders she writes about are so dark, sick, twisted and horrible that I'll not forget them soon. If you don't want terrible nightmares, don't read her books.

Karin Fossum's books are always intelligent, well plotted and relevant to today's issues. She combines psychological suspense with mystery and has to be one of the top writers in this field. I certainly would recommend this book to anyone who wants a bit of a challenge in their reading.
