Publisher's Summary

Ida Joner gets on her brand-new bike and sets off to buy sweets. A good-natured, happy girl, she is looking forward to her 10th birthday. Thirty-five minutes after Ida should have come home, Helga Joner, her mother, starts to worry. She phones the shop and various friends, but no one has seen her daughter. As the family goes out looking for Ida, Helga’s worst nightmare becomes reality, and they contact the police.

Hundreds of volunteers comb the neighbourhood, but there are no traces of Ida or her bike. As the relatives reach breaking point and the media frenzy begins, Inspector Sejer is calm and reassuring. But he finds the case puzzling. Usually missing children are found within forty-eight hours. Ida Joner seems to have vanished without a trace.

    "Karin does it again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend it, this author draws me in with her characters. I think this is her strength. Her insight into human behaviour is quite remarkable, the why and wherefore's her character's actions are so believable. I feel she so often gets it right in regard to how people act.


    If you’ve listened to books by Karin Fossum before, how does this one compare?

    I was a little disappointed as I worked this one out very early in the book but Karin's writing kept me interested until the end. I am so intrigued by her writing skill that she keeps me listening.


    What aspect of David Rintoul’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing, he is like an old friend now


    Any additional comments?

    It is so refreshing to read murder mysteries when the main detective's offsider,
    in this case Skarre, can think for himself and is more like a partner. I really like this about this series, it's not always Sajer telling his junior what to do. I also appreciate the fact that there is no 'big police boss' yelling at Sajer and demanding results. This theme is so overdone in most crime novels. So far we haven't had the killer after the main protagonist either and we learn enough about Sajer's personal life without the book becoming all about him and losing the crime as a focus

    "Drab and monotonous"

    I've never read a mystery where the ending is so ridiculously obvious from the very beginning, nothing but a drab and monotonous read.
