Don't Look Back

Item Details

Meet Inspector Sejer: smart and enigmatic, tough but fair. At the foot of the imposing Kollen Mountain lies a small, idyllic village, where neighbors know neighbors and children play happily in the streets. But when the body of a teenage girl is found by the lake at the mountaintop, the town's tranquility is shattered forever. Annie was strong, intelligent, and loved by everyone. What went so terribly wrong? Doggedly, yet subtly, Inspector Sejer uncovers layer upon layer of distrust and lies beneath the town's seemingly perfect façade. Critically acclaimed across Europe, Karin Fossum's Inspector Sejer novels are masterfully constructed, psychologically convincing, and compulsively readable. They evoke a world that is at once profoundly disturbing and terrifyingly familiar.

Our story begins in a small Norwegian village at the foot of the Kollen Mountain. A six-year-old girl is missing, and Inspector Sejer is on the case. But that’s not all that’s happening in the village!

The body of a teenaged girl is found, and Sejer officially has his hands full. The good news: everyone in the village knows everyone else. The bad news? No one has any idea why someone would murder Annie Holland.

Secrets and lies will be revealed as Sejer searches for the murderer. Readers will encounter lots of red herrings along the way.

I really enjoyed this one!
