The Whisperer

by Karin Fossum

Part of the Inspector Sejer Series

The Whisperer Synopsis

Read the stunning, psychologically acute new thriller from the Queen of Norwegian crime fiction. **SHORTLISTED FOR THE PETRONA AWARD 2019** Ragna Riegel works in a supermarket and still lives in her childhood home. She's alone in the world since her only son moved to Berlin. She longs for a Christmas or birthday card from him. Ragna lives her life within strict self-imposed limits: she sits in the same seat on the bus every day, on her way to her predictable job. On her way home she always visits the same local shop. She feels safe in her routine, until one day she receives a letter with a threatening message scrawled in capital letters. An unknown enemy has entered her world and she must use all her means to defend herself. When the worst happens, Inspector Konrad Sejer is called in to interrogate Ragna. Is this unassuming woman out of her depth, or is she hiding a dark secret? 'The final page will make your jaw drop and your heart stop' Evening Standard 'Exemplary... the suspense is maintained with a sure touch' Guardian

The Whisperer Press Reviews

The final page will make your jaw drop and your heart stop -- Mark Saunderson * Evening Standard * The new twists are all wonderful and the old creepy atmosphere is brilliantly recreated with Long Island's swirling mists -- Wendy Holden * Daily Mail * Exemplary... the suspense is maintained with a sure touch -- Barry Forshaw * Guardian * The Whisperer contains deep psychological insight ... Creepy, unnerving discomfort and plausible madness in everyday life... Builds towards the shocking reveal. * VG * It is her ability to make average, often wounded human psyches crackle and glow...that is Fossum's forte...She has an exceptional eye for fragility and vulnerability, and the complexity and dark humour of these states of mind. * AFTENPOSTEN *
