9780099565468: Don't Look Back (Inspector Sejer)

A brilliantly engaging atmospheric thriller from Norway's Queen of Crime.
Beneath the imposing Kollen Mountain lies a small village where the children run in and out of one another's houses and play unafraid in the streets. But when a naked body is found by the lake at the top of the mountain, its seeming tranquillity is disturbed forever. 

Inspector Sejer, a tough, no-nonsense policeman whose own life is tinged by sadness, is called in to investigate. As the suspense builds, and the list of suspects grows, Sejer's determination to discover the truth leads him to peel away layer upon layer of distrust and lies in this tiny community where apparently normal family ties hide dark secrets. 

Critically acclaimed across Europe and loved by fellow crime writers including Jo Nesbo, Ruth Rendell and Colin Dexter, Karin Fossum's novels evoke a world that is terrifyingly familiar.

From the Back Cover:

"Sejer belongs alongside the likes of Adam Dalgliesh and Inspector Morse - a gifted detective and troubled man." -- The Boston Globe
At the foot of the Kollen Mountain lies an idyllic Norwegian village, where neighbors know neighbors and children play happily in the streets. But when the naked body of a teenage girl is found by the lake, the town's tranquility is shattered forever. Annie was strong, intelligent, and loved by everyone. What went so terribly wrong?
Inspector Sejer is called to investigate. Doggedly, yet subtly, he uncovers layer upon layer of distrust and lies beneath the seemingly perfect facade.
"Relentlessly gripping." --Los Angeles Times
"Fossum's novels starring Inspector Konrad Sejer have been critically acclaimed throughout Europe, and it's easy to see why." --The Washington Post Book World
"Build[s] to a heart-stopping conclusion." --Entertainment Weekly
Karin Fossum is the author of many novels and two collections of short stories. Her crime novels featuring Inspector Sejer have been widely acclaimed in Europe and translated into sixteen languages. She lives in Oslo.
