Booklist Reviews 2013 July #1

When a local factory worker's body is pulled from an Oslo river just months after the suffocation murder of a high-end call girl, Inspector Konrad Sejer is struck by the unusual circumstance of having two mysterious homicides share his caseload. Confident that the best evidence will be plucked from witnesses' recollections, Sejer embarks on a campaign of interviews. Inexplicably, interviews for both cases reveal ties to melancholy artist Eva, childhood friend of the slain prostitute. Why didn't she tell police she was first to see the body in the river? Sejer, who is quietly confident and oddly comforting, meets his crime-solving tasks with a unique understanding of human desperation. Fossum's signature style of unveiling the story through the voices of everyone touched by the murder illuminates the crime's tragedies and ensures a steady flow of story-twisting revelations. Sejer followers will enjoy this payoff for their wait for the U.S. release of the series' first novel, and librarians can confidently recommend it as a match for Ruth Rendell's and Sophie Hannah's subtle, chilling psychological tales.

LJ Reviews 2013 June #1

Expect high demand for the debut title in Fossum's popular series (first time available in English). No excuses for not meeting the compelling Norwegian Insp. Konrad Sejer now. [See Prepub Alert, 2/11/13.]

Originally published in Norway in 1995, Fossum's entertaining first Insp. Konrad Sejer mystery is finally available in English (after 2012's The Caller, the eighth series entry to be published in the U.S.). While walking along the riverbank of an unnamed small town, divorced artist Eva Magnus and her seven-year-old daughter, Emma, spot a dead body floating in the river. In front of the inquisitive Emma, Eva pretends to call the police, but instead calls her father. When the police discover that the body is that of a murdered prostitute who used to be a friend of Eva's, suspicions arise. Eva's transition from struggling painter and single mother to something new and unpredictable will delight fans searching for the next diverting Scandinavian mystery. While Eva steals the center stage from Sejer, her increasingly fraught decisions give this dark police procedural warmth despite the frigid environs. (Aug.)
