An outstanding psychological crime novel from Karin Fossum: when a body surfaces in a lake Inspector Sejer must uncover a dark secret of betrayal and paranoia.
Early one September three friends spend the weekend at a remote cabin by Dead Water Lake. With only a pale moon to light their way, they row across the water in the middle of the night. But only two of them return.

When the body of the third friend is discovered, Inspector Sejer is put in charge of the investigation. He is troubled by the apparent suicide and has an overwhelming sense that the surviving pair has something to hide. Weeks pass without further clues and then, in a nearby lake, the body of another teenage boy floats to the surface.
KARIN FOSSUM made her literary debut in Norway in 1974. She is the author of poetry, short stories and several novels, and her Inspector Sejer series has been published in twenty-six countries.

Editorial Reviews

"I not only enjoyed it but admired it, too. I also found it playing in my head for a long time afterwards, the effect on the reader every writer surely longs for." --Lesley McDowell, Sunday Herald"The seventh Inspector Sejer novel from Norway's leading female crime writer is, like its predecessors, a gem." --Laura Wilson, Guardian"Few match her ability to conjure an atmosphere of emotional as well as geographical desolation." --Marcel Berlins, The Times
