And I would like that man to be you. We have spent many long hours together during all the weeks of the preliminary investigations. But at the time it was too soon.

Karin Fossum Hell Fire My darling Finn. Thank you. 1 July 6, 2005 Women and children sweated in the heat, but the men knew better and stayed in the shade with the peaks of their caps pulled down over their eyes. In a hollow in the fields up by Skarven, an old Fendt trailer stood in a cluster of dark pines. A torn curtain hung in one rusty window a fine net of nylon threads and white lace where insects had gotten caught and trapped. A child was lying just inside the door, a child of around four ...

Karin Fossum I Can See in the Dark Chapter 1 Theres nothing beautiful about her, and she has no control. She cant control her eyes, which dart about, or roll up into her head, so that only the glistening whites are visible. Or her body, which does what it likes.

Children should be plump, pink and warm, soft as rubber and full of sparkling life. ...

Karin Fossum Evas eye To my father Introduction It was a Wendy house. A tiny house with red windowsills and lace curtains. He halted a short distance from it, listened, but heard nothing except the dog panting by his side and a gentle rustle from the old apple trees. He stood there a moment longer, feeling the dampness of the grass seep through his shoes, listening to his heart, which had changed its pace after the chase through the garden. The dog looked up at him and waited. Saliva poured from ...
