Sarah Broadhurst's view...

“Norway’s Queen of Crime” but this is only the second to be published over here. Strangely there is no “feel” of Norway in this cracking psychological thriller; it’s very Ruth Rendellesque. An intriguing story of disturbed minds, dysfunctional families and reluctant robbers. There is much to unravel and despite the almost inevitable conclusion, it still came as a surprise. It’s a real page-turner.

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

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

He Who Fears the Wolf by Karin Fossum

A boy arrives - breathless and aghast - at his police station, to report the discovery of a horribly maimed body outside an isolated house in the woods. Yet there was another person in the woods that day - standing nearby, hidden within the trees, was the mysterious figure of the local misfit, Errki. The next morning a bank in the nearby town is robbed at gunpoint. The gunman takes a hostage and flees. As his plans begin to come apart he, unlike his passive hostage, rapidly loses control. Meanwhile the search for the killer has developed into a manhunt - everyone is looking for the enigmatic Errki.
