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)

Grand Eagle Retail

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Walking through the woods one warm September day, Reinhardt and Kristine Ris pass a man who is in a state of agitation. Unusually in a small town, he does not return Kristine's smile and drives off in a hurry. Near the end of their walk they make a terrible discovery- lying in a cluster of trees is the lifeless body of a young boy. It is a moment that will change their lives for ever. Inspector Sejer is called to the scene, but can find no immediate cause of death. As the weeks go by, the appeal for the man seen in the woods to come forward remains unanswered. A once peaceful community is deeply shaken and the children lose the sense of complete freedom they had enjoyed. Then a second boy goes missing. 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. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
