Description

Eva is walking by the river with her seven-year-old daughter when they catch sight of a man's body in the water. Eva tells her daughter to wait while she calls the police, but when she reaches the phone box she doesn't call them. Instead she phones her father, and makes no mention of her discovery.

When the body is eventually found, it soon becomes clear to Inspector Sejer and his team that this was no accidental drowning - the man was the victim of a very violent killer. But the trail has gone cold. Until, one night, Eva receives a phone call...

Review quote

"This is a tightly-written, carefully plotted story with amazing depths which is likely to remain with you long after you close the book" * Get West London * "A compelling read" -- Sean Farrell * Irish Sunday Independent * "Vintage Fossum" -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror * "It is Karin Fossum's wry observations of human frailty and the warmth with which she portrays even her flawed characters - that make this book such a pleasure to read. It's rare for me to find a book that I love so much I can't put it down, but this was one of them" -- Penny Hancock "The latest offering from the "Norwegian queen of crime" is a novel of mighty power. In The Darkness, the first Inspector Sejer novel, is intricately crafted with undeniable pedigree" -- Ruth Dugdall
