can this really be a karin fossum novel?,
This review is from: In the Darkness: An Inspector Sejer Novel (Inspector Sejer 1) (Paperback)
After reading four or five other Karin Fossum novels, I thought she was one of the best and most interesting of the Scandinavian crime fiction writers. That was before I read 'In The Darkness'. It bears no resemblance to the other Fossum novels, with its flimsy characterisation, clumsy style (not helped by the inelegant translation) and far-fetched plot. It appears to be an early novel of hers, which is being published in English for the first time. Her publishers have done her reputation no favours by issuing it.
