La cuarta entrega de la serie protagonizada por el inspector Konrad Sejer es una de las novelas más oscuras y siniestras de Karin Fossum, autora destacada de la nueva narrativa policíaca escandinava. Dos adolescentes roban el bolso a una mujer desprevenida. Sin saberlo, provocan accidentalmente la muerte de su hijo. Sin embargo, desconocedores de la gravedad de su crimen e insatisfechos con el botín obtenido, Andreas y Zipp se disponen a cometer otro delito. Es de noche, y las desiertas calles de la ciudad han descubierto ya a su próxima víctima: Irma, una mujer mayor que vuelve a casa tras una velada en el teatro. Los dos delincuentes la siguen hasta su residencia, en la que Andreas se cuela mientras Zipp lo espera afuera. Pero Andreas no regresa. El inspector Konrad Sejer y su compañero Jacob Skarre no encuentran conexión alguna entre la muerte de un niño y la denuncia por desaparición de un delincuente juvenil. Así, mientras la confusión y los misterios se acumulan en el mundo exterior, la terrible verdad se esconde tras la puerta cerrada de una casa cuya llave guarda celosamente una aparentemente apacible anciana. Reseña: «Fossum nos atrapa tanto por la proximidad de tantas vidas echadas a perder como por nuestra incapacidad de cerrar el libro.» Booklist

“No one can thoroughly chill the blood the way Karin Fossum can.” —Los Angeles Times Eva Magnus and her daughter are out walking by the river when a man’s body floats to the water’s surface. Eva goes to call the police, but when she reaches the phone, she dials another number altogether. The police find the body anyway. Inspector Sejer and his team quickly determine that the man, Egil, died in a violent attack. But Egil has been missing for months and the trail to his killer is cold. It’s as puzzling as another unsolved case on Sejer’s desk: the murder of a prostitute, found dead just before Egil went missing. Sejer sets to work piecing together these two impossible cases; it's not long before he realizes that they aren’t as separate as they previously seemed.

Ida Joner gets on her brand-new bike and sets off toward town. A good-natured, happy girl, she is looking forward to her tenth birthday. Thirty-five minutes after Ida should have come home, her mother starts to worry. She phones store owners, Ida’s friends—anyone who could have seen her. But no one has. Suspicion immediately falls on Emil Mork, a local character who lives alone and hasn’t spoken since childhood. His mother insists on cleaning his house weekly—although she’s sometimes afraid of what she might find there. A mother’s worst nightmare in either case—to lose a child or to think a child capable of murder. As Ida’s relatives reach the breaking point and the media frenzy surrounding the case begins, Inspector Konrad Sejer is his usual calm and reassuring self. But he’s puzzled. And disturbed. This is the strangest case he’s seen in years.

Inspector Sejer is hard at work again, investigating the brutal murder of a woman who lived alone in the middle of the woods. The chief suspect is another loner, a schizophrenic recently escaped from a mental institution. The only witness is a twelve-year-old boy, overweight, obsessed with archery, and a resident at a home for delinquents. When a demented man robs a nearby bank and accidentally takes the suspect hostage, the three misfits are drawn into an uneasy alliance. Shrewdly, patiently, as is his way, Inspector Sejer confronts a case where the strangeness of the crime is matched only by the strangeness of the criminals, and where small-town prejudices warp every piece of information he tries to collect. Fossum once again provides extraordinary insight into marginalized lives and richly evokes the atmosphere she captured so brilliantly in Don't Look Back.

When perpetual bachelor Gunder Jomann goes to India for two weeks and comes home married, the town of Elvestad is stunned. On the day the Indian bride is supposed to arrive, the battered body of a woman is found in a meadow on the outskirts of town. None of the "good people of Elvestad" can believe that anyone among them would be capable of such a brutal murder. But in his quiet, formal way, Inspector Konrad Sejer understands that good people can commit atrocious deeds, and that no one is altogether innocent—including the café owner who knows too much, the girl who wants to be a chief witness, and the bodybuilder with no outlet for his terrible strength. Another brilliantly conceived, dark novel from one of Europe’s most successful crime writers.

Andreas's disappearance is a mystery to all, including his inseparable friend Zipp. But as much as the police question him, its not easy for Zipp to come forward with details of the last time he saw his friend: following an old woman into her home, brandishing his knife. Zipp waited anxiously outside but Andreas failed to reappear. Inspector Sejer and his colleague Skarre are baffled but while the confusion in the outside world continues, a chilling and heart-stopping drama is unfolding inside the old woman's home. In a plot in the tradition of Stephen King, Fossum deploys her trademark skill of looking realistically, terrifyingly, into the minds of criminal and victim. Appearances aren't always to be believed, and people are not always what they seem.

Segundo caso del inspector Sejer: un nuevo y misterioso caso que resolver. Novela ganadora del premio La llave de cristal a la mejor novela policíaca escandinava, un galardón que comparte con Henning Mankell y Stieg Larsson. Ragnhild, una niña de seis años, desaparece sin dejar rastro. Mientras la policía, encabezada por el inspector Konrad Sejer, inicia la búsqueda de la pequeña, esta se encuentra jugando en casa de Raymond, un individuo algo retrasado que vive en el bosque con su padre. El caso parece resuelto cuando Ragnhild regresa a su casa sana y salva esa misma noche, pero en realidad la pesadilla no ha hecho más que empezar. La niña recuerda haber visto a una chica desnuda en la orilla del lago y la policía no tarda en descubrir el cadáver de Annie Holland. Al principio Sejer no cuenta con ninguna pista que explique el atroz asesinato, pero a medida que se suceden los interrogatorios va destapando el sórdido pasado de varios miembros de la pequeña comunidad noruega.

Suddenly, Archer find himself smack in the middle of a decades-long mystery of a brilliant artist who walked into the desert and simply disappeared. He left behind a bevy of muses, molls, dolls, and dames-each one scrambling for what they thought was rightfully theirs.

En El ojo de Eva, primer caso del Inspector Sejer, el detective deberá investigar la muerte de una prostituta y su relación con una joven pintora. Eva Magnus, una joven pintora de escaso éxito, se encuentra a Maja, una vieja amiga, que intenta convencerla para que se gane la vida como prostituta y salde así sus deudas, cada día más acuciantes. Maja invita a Eva a su casa y la anima a ver por el resquicio de la puerta cómo se hace el «trabajo». Pero de pronto el cliente y Maja se enzarzan en una pelea, y Eva acaba con el cadáver de su amiga en los brazos. Se inicia así un torbellino criminal al que Eva, casi por casualidad, se ve arrastrada. El inspector Sejer, al hacerse cargo de la investigación, intuye que la joven artista sabe más de lo que dice y que las respuestas a sus interrogantes están en la vida secreta de Eva Magnus...

Un tesoro para los fans.» Kirkus Reviews
