    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.

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

    Karin Fossum is an excellent writer, and I am a big fan, but this book doesn't measure up to her best. It is very, very dark, and sad. Her previous books are slightly dark, and not very sad. This went over the edge to me, and I just wanted to finish it.


    What does David Rintoul bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    David Rintoul has a lovely deep and resonant voice. He carries the listener along.


    Any additional comments?

    Inspector Sejer is a favorite protagonist, but his ruminations don't get enough room in this story.
