Back cover copy
At the foot of the Kollen Mountain lies an idyllic Norwegian village, where neighbors know neighbors and children play happily in the streets. But when the naked body of a teenage girl is found by the lake, the town's tranquility is shattered forever. Annie was strong, intelligent, and loved by everyone. What went so terribly wrong?
Inspector Sejer is called to investigate. Doggedly, yet subtly, he uncovers layer upon layer of distrust and lies beneath the seemingly perfect facade.
"Relentlessly gripping." --Los Angeles Times
"Fossum's novels starring Inspector Konrad Sejer have been critically acclaimed throughout Europe, and it's easy to see why." --The Washington Post Book World
"Build[s] to a heart-stopping conclusion." --Entertainment Weekly
Karin Fossum is the author of many novels and two collections of short stories. Her crime novels featuring Inspector Sejer have been widely acclaimed in Europe and translated into sixteen languages. She lives in Oslo.
"There's no mistaking this psychologically astute, subtly horrifying crime study for a cozy village mystery or its soulful detective for one of those brainy European sleuths who make a parlor game of homicide."-THE NEW Y ORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"Sejer belongs alongside the likes of Adam Dalgliesh and Inspector Morse-a gifted detective and troubled man, whom I am grateful to have met and look forward to knowing better."
-THE BOSTON GLOBE
