9780099461128: When The Devil Holds The Candle (Inspector Sejer Mystery)

'Has anyone seen Andreas?'

Andreas's disappearance is a mystery to all, including his inseparable friend Zipp. But its not easy for Zipp to come forward with details of the last time he saw his friend - they had been following an old woman, an easy target for some quick cash, and Andreas boldly followed her into her home brandishing his knife, the next moment he was gone. Zipp waited anxiously outside but Andreas failed to reappear.

Inspector Sejer and his colleague Skarre are baffled but while the confusion in the outside world continues, a chilling and heart-stopping drama is unfolding inside the old woman's home. In a plot in the tradition of Stephen King, Fossum deploys her trademark skill of looking realistically, terrifyingly, into the minds of criminal and victim. Appearances aren't always to be believed, and people are not always what they seem.

Review:

"Like the best Rendell, this unsettling novel tackles the reasons people commit crimes and the devastating effect it has on the protagonists lives" (Good Book Guide)

"Explores the process of scapegoating, and the awful human cost of false accusations ... may well bring the half-Swedish Ruth Rendell irresistibly to mind" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"Marked by an intelligence and compassion not often found in the pages of crime fiction" (Donna Leon Sunday Times)

From the Publisher:

‘Fossum’s elucidation of the criminally degenerate mind is first-rate’ Mail on Sunday
