9780099555049: The Water's Edge

A couple out walking in the woods discover the dead body of a half-naked boy.

To Kristine's horror her husband begins to take photographs of the corpse on his mobile phone, but this proves only the beginning of his obsession with the case.

Inspector Sejer is called to the scene but he can find no immediate cause of death. And who was the agitated man the couple saw moments before their discovery? Then, a second boy goes missing, and the once peaceful community is left deeply shaken.

Is there a killer within their midst?

Product Description:

Water's Edge

Review:

"If you're in search of an antidote to the in-your-face energy of American crime fiction, this quiet, slender, bracingly bleak tale could well be it" ( The Sunday Times)

"As a portrait of a community possessed by suspicion, The Water's Edge can scarcely be bettered" ( Independent)

"It's heart-rending, sometimes cold, forensic writing; she pushes you into tight, uncomfortable corners. She's good" ( Scotsman)

"It's difficult to out-creep Karin Fossum" ( Time Out)

"An exceptionally fine story, Fossum's real narrative appeal rests on her ability to see the humanity in even the most wretched soul" ( New York Times)
