|Summary, etc.:|| "In this tense and twisty latest from Norway's maven of crime, time shifts between Inspector Sejer's interrogation of the accused Ragna Reigel and the shocking events that led up to her arrest. How did this lonely, quiet woman come to kill a man--or did she?"-- Provided by publisher.
Ragna Riegel likes to sit on the same seat on the bus every day and she likes to buy the same things at the local shop each day. She must have order in her life. And she does, until one day she receives a letter with a threat written in block capitals on the sheet inside. Facing an unknown enemy, she must use all her means to defend herself. When the worst happens, Inspector Konrad Sejer thinks it is an open-and-shut case. But Ragna may be hiding a dark secret.... -- adapted from jacket

It takes a steady hand to craft a 336-page mystery that takes place almost exclusively in an interrogation room as a Norwegian detective questions an oddly detached suspect. In Fossum's thirteenth Konrad Sejer mystery (following Hell Fire, 2016), the award-winning author proves up to the challenge posed by the restrictive setting. Ragna Riegel has confessed to a crime. The solitary shop worker relishes the safety of her cell and the chance to tell her story to the sympathetic Sejer. Though the reader does not know what crime has been committed or who from Ragna's small group of acquaintances may have been involved, we do learn that it all started with an anonymous card deposited in Ragna's mailbox that read, "You are going to die." As Ragna, speaking only in a whisper, describes the events leading up to her crime, Sejer reconstructs what she says in such a way as to create another version of what happenedâone that Ragna does not recognize. A wonderfully tense psychological crime novel by a master storyteller. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
