UPDATE

Karin Fossum fans - her new book has arrived!

And for anyone who hasn't read Fossum's books, now's a good time to start.

Bad Intentions is another remarkable detective novel by the Norwegian author and her translator, Charlotte Barslund.

Fossum's books are not police procedurals and this time her detectives, Sejer and Skaar, are truly in the background. Her books are about the psychology of perps and victims, often adolescents and young adults, and in this book, the two intertwine.

It's very dark, heartbreaking, and, like all her novels, a window on Norwegian society.
