The Drowned Boy

1 Mins read

drownedboy200Karin Fossum’s latest case for Inspector Sejer is the case of a little boy with Down’s Syndrome who has drowned, apparently, in a pond near his parents’ home. But forensics prove that he didn’t drown in the pond but elsewhere, while his mother swears it was all a big accident. Did she kill her unfortunate little lad, or is she a young mother beset by the worst of bad luck? What affect will the death have on Tommy’s father and grandparents? And, indeed, on Sejer himself? Superbly written, compassionate and honest, this is a must-read book from Norway’s queen of crime. Find out more about The Drowned Boy in our Reviews section.
