Review:

"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)

"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)

"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)

Book Description:

A little girl seems to have vanished without trace. Inspector Sejer must find her before it's too late in this gripping thriller from pyschological crime writer Karin Fossum
