Inborn

1 Mins read

Thomas Enger is already known for his Henning Juul novels all about a journalist who ends up investigating crimes, but with Inborn he’s written an intriguing standalone. Originally a Norwegian young adult novel, it’s been rewritten and revamped for international release in English, but the story still revolves around a teenage boy who is accused of two murders at the local high school. Even immediately wins your sympathy, but some of his decisions cast him in a guilty light in the eyes of the townsfolk and of police detective Yngve Mork. As the court case against Even is built, the past soon emerges to haunt the book’s adult characters in what is a superbly plotted and cerebral read. Read our full review here.
