A scary and intense thriller with subjugating characters and gruesome scenes , fast-paced , astute : this book possesses all the distinctive qualities of the Nordic Noir Crime Fiction category.
The main perpetrator should be a villain but somehow Fossum manipulates the reader into (if not necessarily approving ) justifying and understanding her behavior. You are made to lean in and ask yourself : what would I have done in her situation ? I’ll be honest and declare I really liked Eva …

"Norwegian police inspector Konrad Sejer, a reserved and thoughtful man, finds it odd that he has two homicide cases in a small town that usually has none. Both victims -- a family man and a call girl -- died within days of each other, and both have a connection to a divorced mother named Eva, who scrapes a living together by selling the occasional painting. Though Eva's Eye is the 1st Inspector Sejer novel written by author Karin Fossum, who's known as Norway's Queen of Crime, eight later books in the series have already been published in English. If you like psychologically rich, well-paced tales like those by Sophie Hannah, you'll want to give Fossum's work a try; this "tour de force" (Kirkus Reviews) is a great place to start." http://www.libraryaware.com/996/NewsletterIssues/ViewIssue/4e094271-7a6c-4526-9ef2-415c153c18ca?postId=18927596-1a79-4a5f-8a46-86587c18fccf

I really enjoyed this book. It is an easy read in which detective Seyer reminds me a little of Wallender, the famous Swedish detective brought to life by Henning Mankell.
