David Rintoul keeps listeners hooked on this second of Fossum's Norwegian crime novels to be translated into English. Inspector Sejer investigates two misdeeds, a bank robbery and the murder of a forest-dwelling old woman, when the two co-mingle. Each of the characters is a distinct individual in Rintoul's reading; he offers believable renderings of men, women, and even children. He is particularly adept at conveying various emotions in a moving, involving way that doesn't overdo. We are led, almost unknowingly, into the center of a psychological drama that grips us to the end. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
