A boy arrives - breathless and aghast - at his police station, to report the discovery of a horribly maimed body outside an isolated house in the woods. Yet there was another person in the woods that day - standing nearby, hidden within the trees, was the mysterious figure of the local misfit, Errki. The next morning a bank in the nearby town is robbed at gunpoint. The gunman takes a hostage and flees. As his plans begin to come apart he, unlike his passive hostage, rapidly loses control. Meanwhile the search for the killer has developed into a manhunt - everyone is looking for the enigmatic Errki.

"If you like the Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell, you'll also enjoy the work of Karin Fossum. He Who Fears the Wolf is distinguished by a humane approach to its troubled characters" ( Independent)
"The psychological insight which she showed [in Don't Look Back] is even more strongly in evidence... It makes fascinating reading" ( Telegraph)
"Fossum's presentation of her characters is marked by an intelligence and compassion that is not often found in the pages of crime fiction" (Donna Leon Sunday Times)
"Fossum's highly atmospheric and involving books are among the best being produced in the genre today... Like the best of Ruth Rendell, this is a dark and unsettling novel" (Barry Forshaw Crime Time)
'As yet, the crime novels of Karin Fossum are something of a well-kept secret, known to a growing band of aficionados but not to the larger crime readership. In fact, Fossum's highly atmospheric and involving books are among the best being produced in the genre today. Don't Look Back was a psychological thriller that was both economical and forceful, and He Who fears the Wolf is an even more persuasive piece of writing. Like the best of Ruth Rendell, this is a dark and unsettling novel...' Barry Forshaw, Crime Time
