Editorial Reviews

• "Karin Fossum shows us how the crime novel can be more than sheer entertainment literature... Well-written and gripping." --Dagbladet 

   • "Karin Fossum is among our foremost authors, regardless of genre. This because of her unique ability to create real people and her deep understanding of the human soul. She has always mastered this, but never better than in Carmen Zita og doden." -- Drammens Tidende
