Riktor doesn´t ask the policeman why he has stormed into his house without knocking - he´s certain that someone has finally realised what happened that day.
As the policeman questions him, however, Riktor realises that he´s being accused of something completely unexpected - something he has nothing to do with. But can Riktor convince the policeman that he´s innocent of one wrongdoing without revealing that he´s guilty of another, far more terrible, crime?
The storytelling is outstanding...Dark, brilliant and guaranteed to leave you feeling queasy.
Fossum´s elucidation of the criminally degenerate mind is first-rate.
A superb writer of psychological suspense.
NEW YORK TIMES
Fossum writes humane thrillers, which perturb and chill.
