I Can See in the Dark by Karin Fossum

Today we have a guest post by Trouble Mandeson, a fan of crime fiction from the USA. She enjoyed this book by Norwegian queen of crime Karin Fossum so much that she messaged me about it and wrote a short review to share on the blog.

Karin Fossum’s “I Can See in the Dark” was a very well done intimate look into the mind of a sociopath who relates his actions in a way rarely seen in novels. His torture of helpless elders is told without emotion which seems to highlight just how bizarre it is. The delicious irony of the felonious protagonist imprisoned for the wrong crime is wonderful and original. I read the book in one day as I just couldn’t put it down. Highly recommend.

    I’m told “Don’t Look Back” was very good but I have never tried Karin Fossum. Another for my burgeoning list.
