Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Scandinavian crime is often dark and gloomy but this author is ace on observation and brings the ordinary into the extraordinary. Charlo Torp is a habitual gambler and has lost the money put aside for his daughter’s horse. He has huge, insurmountable debts so he has a plan to clear them and buy the horse, after all he is a decent man … The plan leaves him looking over his shoulder and heightens his awareness. He can hear every pin drop, hear the blood coursing through his veins, hear his anxiety. Short and well written, this beautifully describes a man at the end of his tether. Enter Inspector Konrad Sejer, the author’s series character.

If you like Karin Fossum you might also like to read books by Kathy Reichs, Stephen Booth and Sophie Hannah.

Synopsis

The Murder of Harriet Krohn by Karin Fossum

Charlo Torp has problems. He's grieving for his late wife, he's lost his job, and gambling debts have alienated him from his teenage daughter. Desperate, his solution is to rob an elderly woman of her money and silverware. But Harriet Krohn fights back, and Charlo loses control. Wracked with guilt, Charlo attempts to rebuild his life. But the police are catching up with him, and Inspector Konrad Sejer has never lost a case yet. Told through the eyes of a killer, The Murder of Harriet Krohn poses the question: how far would you go to turn your life around, and could you live with yourself afterwards?
