Kim P. said:
The first English translation of a series of psychological thrillers set in Norway by "Norway's Queen of Crime". The book begins with the deliciously tense scene of a little girl, walking home from a visit to her best friend, being cajoled into getting a ride home in a beat up old van. The novel then veers off in another thread as the body of a beloved young girl is discovered in the forest. Inspector Sejer, aging, introspective, and grieving for his late wife, relentlessly probes the secrets of the villagers in a plot that keeps you guessing. Great for fans of Ruth Rendell, Minette Walters, and Henning Mankell.

At first, the death of a young teen seems completely out of the blue. Who could have a motive to kill a neighborhood babysitter that everyone loved? However, as we come, along with Inspector Sejer, to know the people of this small town it seems nearly everyone has a secret. As all good mysteries do, this one creates doubt and suspicion right and left. Well plotted.
