Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reinhardt and Kristine Ris, a married couple, are out for a Sunday walk when they discover the body of a boy and see the figure of a man limping away. They alert the police, but not before Reinhardt, to Kristine's horror, kneels down and takes photographs of the dead child with his cell phone. Inspectors Konrad Sejer and Jakob Skarre begin to make inquiries in the little town of Huseby. But then another boy disappears, and an explanation seems more remote than ever. Meanwhile, the Rises marriage unravels as Reinhardt becomes obsessed with the tragic events and his own part in them.

 The Waters Edge is a riveting portrayal of a community in turmoil from Karin Fossum, Norway's “Queen of Crime.”

Synopsis:

Inspector Sejer must track down a sinister figure who fled from the scene of a terrible crime.

Walking through the woods one warm September day, Reinhardt and Kristine Ris pass a man who is in a state of agitation. Unusually in a small town, he does not return Kristine's smile and drives off in a hurry. As the couple continue on their walk they make a terrible discovery: lying in a cluster of trees is the lifeless body of a young boy. It is a moment that will change their lives forever.

Inspector Sejer is called to the scene, but can find no immediate cause of death. As the weeks go by, the appeal for the man seen in the woods to come forward remains unanswered. A once peaceful community is deeply shaken, and the children lose the sense of complete freedom they once enjoyed. Then a second boy goes missing . . . .
