Overview Den som elsker noe annet

A middle-aged couple out walking in the woods discover the body of a half-naked boy. To Kristine´s horror her husband, Reinhardt, begins to take photographs of the body on his mobile phone. But this proves only the beginning of his obsession with the case. Inspector Sejer is called to the scene, but he can find no immediate cause of death, nor can he uncover the identity of the agitated man that the couple saw moments before their discovery. Then a second boy goes missing and the once peaceful community is left deeply shaken.

This is the eighth book about Inspector Sejer.

An exceptionally fine story, Fossum´s real narrative appeal rests on her ability to see the humanity in even the most wretched soul.

If you´re in search of an antidote to the in-your-face energy of American crime fiction, this quiet, slender, bracingly bleak tale could well be it.

Taut, tense...The Water´s Edge can scarcely be better.

"Karin Fossum har gjort det igjen, skrevet en type krim som først og fremst er båret av stor psykologisk innsikt og menneskeforståelse. Sånn sett er hun enestående her til lands."
