9780099548775: The Caller (Inspector Sejer 9)

One summer evening Lily and her husband are enjoying a meal while their baby daughter sleeps peacefully in her pram in the garden. But then Lily steps outside to find her baby soaked in blood.

The distraught parents rush to the hospital where they discover that she is unharmed - the blood isn't hers. Inspector Sejer is called in and spends the evening trying to comprehend why anyone would carry out such a sinister prank. Then, just before midnight, somebody rings his doorbell.

The corridor is empty, but the caller has left a small grey envelope on the mat. Inside it, Sejer finds a postcard bearing a short message: Hell begins now...

Review:

"Fossum is admired by Ruth Rendell and you can see why' " ( Daily Mail)

" A contemporary Patricia Highsmith, her offbeat obsession with the psychology of the criminal mind, and the human cost of criminal activity, pays off handsomely yet again" ( Irish Times)

"It is a sign of Fossum's sophistication that the reader comes to empathise with the teenaged tormentor - a deliberate ploy which makes the double-twist ending all the more shocking" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Fossum's Norway is an apposite setting for a long dark night of the soul" ( Independent)

"With a focus on characters and the impacts of crime, Fossum’s psychological thrillers will appeal, in particular, to fans of Anne Holt and Henning Mankell" ( Booklist)

Book Description:

The outstanding new Inspector Sejer novel from the award-winning Norwegian Queen of Crime
