The Drowned Boy

The Drowned Boy

Book Review
If you are already a fan of the Inspector Sejer series, you will not be disappointed with Fossum’s latest novel. Centered on the drowning death of a 16-month-old boy, the mystery unfolds with glimpses into the inner workings of various characters, leading up to an end that is unresolved. Fossum lets the reader decide if there is justice. This might not appeal to those who like mysteries that are tied up in a neat little bow, but for those who want the opportunity to ponder the concepts of good and evil, this is a lovely summer read.
