9780156031363: Don't Look Back (Inspector Sejer Mysteries)

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.

Review:

" 'Don't Look Back, shows just how well [Fossum] deserves her continental fame... all of her characters [are] marked by an intelligent compassion that is not often found in the pages of crime fiction and her prose comes through translation with grace and style" ( Sunday Times)

"Ends with such a blow to the stomach that most readers will wish they had failed to understand the appalling outcome to this apparently routine investigation" ( Scotsman)

"[From] Norway's Queen of crime...an engaging, atmospheric thriller" ( Daily Mail)

Book Description:

A brilliantly engaging atmospheric thriller from Norway's Queen of Crime
