Praise For The Indian Bride…
PRAISE FOR KARIN FOSSUM"A superb writer of psychological suspense." — THE NEW YORK TIMES "With sharp . . . insight and a fine grasp on police procedure, Fossum is easily one of the best new imports the genre has to offer." — THE BALTIMORE SUN
"Heart-stoppingly suspenseful...terrific...[Sejer and Skarre] make such an agreeably civilized pair that if I had to be a crime victim and could chose the locale, I would pick Norway....Fossum is a master at probing the plague of guilt that infects a community in which just about everyone has something they think they need to hide..."
"Fossum is a master at drawing finely detailed suspects
"Outstanding...With a skill few can equal, Fossum deftly paints the provincial inhabitants of Elvestad, coupling those poignant word portraits with a whodunit and an insightful but fallible detective." (starred)
"Showcases the crisp prose and unsettling scenarios that have made Fossum one of Europe''s most successful crime novelists. Like a Scandinavian winter, this potent psychological thriller chills right to the bone." (starred)
"[It] takes...subtle thought to interpret a cafe owner''s surliness or a schoolgirl''s eagerness to be a murder witness. What it takes is a writer like Fossum, able to see into the soul of an entire village."
