9780151011827: The Indian Bride (Inspector Sejer Mysteries)

When perpetual bachelor Gunder Jomann goes to India for two weeks and comes home married, the town of Elvestad is stunned. On the day the Indian bride is supposed to arrive, the battered body of a woman is found in a meadow on the outskirts of town. None of the "good people of Elvestad" can believe that anyone among them would be capable of such a brutal murder. But in his quiet, formal way, Inspector Konrad Sejer understands that good people can commit atrocious deeds, and that no one is altogether innocent—including the café owner who knows too much, the girl who wants to be a chief witness, and the bodybuilder with no outlet for his terrible strength.
Another brilliantly conceived, dark novel from one of Europe’s most successful crime writers.

Book Description:

Published in hardcover by Harcourt, 2007, 978-0-15-101182-7/0-15-101182-6

From the Back Cover:

A Washington Post Book World Best Book of the Year

 

When the battered body of a woman is found on the day Gunder Jomann’s bride is due to arrive from India, the town of Elvestad is stunned—no one can believe that one of them could be capable of such a brutal murder. But Inspector Sejer understands that no one is completely innocent—not the café owner who knows too much, the girl who wants to be a star witness, or the bodybuilder with no outlet for his terrible strength.

 

"This new mystery out of Norway is so heart-stoppingly suspenseful that it was all I could do to keep myself from catapulting instantly to the bang-up final chapter." --Richard Lipez, The Washington Post Book World

"[It] takes . . . subtle thought to interpret a cafe owner's surliness or a schoolgirl's eagerness to be a murder witness. What it takes is a writer like Fossum, able to see into the soul of an entire village." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

 

KARIN FOSSUM’s novels featuring Inspector Sejer have been translated into sixteen languages. The third in the series, When the Devil Holds the Candle, won the Gumshoe Award. She lives in a small town in southeastern Norway.
