    Riktor doesn’t like the way the policeman comes straight into the house without knocking. He doesn’t like the arrogant way he observes his home.

He is accusing Riktor of something totally unexpected. Riktor doesn’t have a clear conscience, but this is a crime he certainly didn’t commit.

    Ikke mange kriminalforfattere synes at have så uhindret adgang til menneskets sorte sider som norske Karin Fossum. Det beviser hun igen i "Jeg kan se i mørke", som er beretningen om den mandlige sygeplejer Riktor, der arbejder på et plejehjem. Udadtil er han en pligtopfyldende, høflig person, som ingen kan sætte en finger på, selv om han er lidt "sær". Men indadtil er han plejeren fra Helvede.
