We start the first of the year with the first ever Inspector Sejer novel, "In the Darkness", which launched Karin Fossum's career as the Norwegian Queen of Crime.
Eva is walking by the river one afternoon when a body floats to the surface of the icy water. She tells her daughter to wait patiently while she calls the police, but when she reaches the phone box Eva dials another number altogether. The dead man, Egil, has been missing for months, and it doesn't take long for Inspector Sejer and his team to establish that he was the victim of a very violent killer. But the trail has gone cold. It's as puzzling as another unsolved case on Sejer's desk: the murder of a prostitute who was found dead just before Egil went missing.
Will Inspector Sejer be able to put the puzzle together? Read "In The Darkness", then come to the discussion where we’ll also explore what has made this a prize-winning series that’s been published around the world.
