A single mother finds a disturbing drawing in her son’s room.
A young man and a teenage boy meet by chance on the shores of the deep lake in Svartland Forest.
The next day, sixteen-year-old Gritt Zeeland is found dead in the same forest.
There are so many reasons why a pretty young girl might be in danger. Police inspector Sejer finds himself dealing with a distressing murder mystery that has many possible solutions. Gritt Zeeland let almost nobody get close to her, but there were plenty of people –young and old – who had noticed her.
Lovely Creature is a profoundly penetrating crime novel about beauty and ugliness, tenderness and violence, great lies and painful realities.
Masterful! An extremely actual and masterly performed crime novel. Everything is so well done that you feel like immediately reading the book again just to see how all the dots are connected. ******
Surprising and straight forward elegant. *****
Fossum at her best ******
So realistic and strong, just straight forward remarkable writing - no matter the genre. (...) Karin Fossums psychological reflections are impressive, and the progress of the narrative is impeccable. The book has plenty of surprises and the occasional twist that made me think: I did not see that coming. It does not get much better than that. ******
More than an ordinary crime novel. ******
One of Karin Fossum´s very best crime novels. ******
One of Karin Fossum´s very best!
