9780099501725: Black Seconds

Ida, a good-natured, happy girl, is looking forward to her tenth birthday when she gets on her brand new bike and sets off to buy sweets. She should be back within half an hour but she never returns. Her mother, frantic with worry, calls the shop, friends and family but no one has seen her daughter. As the relatives reach breaking point and the media circus begins, Inspector Sejer is calm and reassuring, but inside he is worried: missing children are normally found within forty-eight hours. Ida seems to have vanished without a trace.

Review:

"Possibly the most popular foreign crime writer in translation, the Norgwegian Karin Fossum is an intelligent author who delivers more than a smart plot by way of psychological insight and clear-eyed characterisation" ( Daily Mail)

"There is no room for debate: the most important female writer of foreign crime fiction at work today is the Norwegian Karin Fossum" ( Rough Guide to Crime Fiction)

"Fossum is frequently compared to Ruth Rendell, but Black Seconds is much more reminiscent of the psychological thrillers of Patricia Highsmith. Fossum is a clever writer; this is her most cunning tale yet" ( Daily Express)

"A superb writer of psychological suspense" ( New York Times)

"Writes like Ruth Rendell with the gloves off" ( Kirkus Reviews)

Book Description:
