'He'd just learnt to walk,' she said. 'He was sitting playing on his blanket, then all of a sudden he was gone.'

A 16-month-old boy is found drowned in a pond right by his home. Chief Inspector Sejer is called to the scene as there is something troubling about the mother's story. As even her own family turns against her, Sejer is determined to get to the truth.

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
