Publisher Description

Murder unsettles a Nordic town in this “heart-stoppingly suspenseful” crime novel from “a master at probing the plague of guilt that infects a community” (Washington Post Book World).

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.

“[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, New York Times

“Like a Scandinavian winter, this potent psychological thriller chills right to the bone. —Booklist, starred review

“An irresistible page-turner that’s like a Nordic Sherlock Holmes story, with characters by Bergman and blood by Tarantino.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Outstanding . . . With a skill few can equal, Fossum deftly paints the provincial inhabitants of Elvestad, coupling those poignant word portraits with a whodunit and an insightful but fallible detective.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
