    One mild summer evening Lily and her husband are enjoying a meal while their baby daughter sleeps peacefully in her pram beneath a maple tree. But when Lily steps outside she is paralysed with terror. The child is bathed in blood. Inspector Sejer is called to the hospital to meet the family. Mercifully, the baby is unharmed, but her parents are deeply shaken, and Sejer spends the evening trying to comprehend why anyone would carry out such a sinister prank.

    Paul says: "Good listen!"
    "not on par with other "scandinavian" mysteries"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, this was not on par with some of the other Scandinavian mysteries such as Mankell, Lackberg, and Nesbo.


    What was most disappointing about Karin Fossum’s story?

    Story and characters seemed shallow with the book more as a series of unpleasant episodes. It was hard to care about any of the characters and there was never any payoff to the story. At least it was short.


    Any additional comments?

    too bad audible doesn't offer versions Fossum's other novels since it seems like this isn't as good as her others.
