Don’t Look Back by Karin Fossum (Inspector Sejer)

When a popular teenage girl is found dead by a mountain lake, the innocence of an idyllic town is shattered.

While I enjoyed Don’t Look Back, I wasn’t hooked on the series. The mystery is very well-plotted and kept me guessing to the end, but the psychological complexity wasn’t there the way I wanted it to be. And the reveal at the end had some elements that felt forced and overly dramatic. However, I loved the Norwegian setting and the mention of Sigrid Undset’s The Wreath, one of my all-time favorite books, because I’m a nerd that way.
