9780156030496: He Who Fears the Wolf (Inspector Sejer Mysteries)

A boy arrives - breathless and aghast - at his police station, to report the discovery of a horribly maimed body outside an isolated house in the woods. Yet there was another person in the woods that day - standing nearby, hidden within the trees, was the mysterious figure of the local misfit, Errki. The next morning a bank in the nearby town is robbed at gunpoint. The gunman takes a hostage and flees. As his plans begin to come apart he, unlike his passive hostage, rapidly loses control. Meanwhile the search for the killer has developed into a manhunt - everyone is looking for the enigmatic Errki.

Review:

"Karin Fossum has been heralded as Norway's Queen of Crime."
--"Daily Mail
"Like the best Rendell, this unsettling novel tackles the reasons people commit crimes and the devastating effect it has on the protagonists' lives."
--"Good Book Guide
"Fossum's highly atmospheric and involving books are among the best being produced in the crime genre today."
--Barry Forshaw, "Crime Time

From the Publisher:

'As yet, the crime novels of Karin Fossum are something of a well-kept secret, known to a growing band of aficionados but not to the larger crime readership. In fact, Fossum's highly atmospheric and involving books are among the best being produced in the genre today. Don't Look Back was a psychological thriller that was both economical and forceful, and He Who fears the Wolf is an even more persuasive piece of writing. Like the best of Ruth Rendell, this is a dark and unsettling novel...' Barry Forshaw, Crime Time

Book Description HARVEST BOOKS, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Following her critically acclaimed debut, Don t Look Back, Karin Fossum s next mystery finds Inspect Sejer at the scene of a brutal murder in a stark, strange town. Inspector Sejer is hard at work again, investigating the murder of a woman who lived alone in the middle of the woods. The chief suspect is another loner, a schizophrenic recently escaped from a mental institution. The only witness is a twelve-year-old boy, overweight, obsessed with archery, and a resident at a home for delinquents. When a demented man robs a nearby bank and accidentally takes the suspect hostage, the three misfits are drawn into an uneasy alliance. Shrewdly, patiently, as is his way, Inspector Sejer confronts a case where the strangeness of the crime is matched only by the strangeness of the criminals, and where small-town prejudices warp every piece of information he tries to collect.
