    schema:reviewBody ""Nordic noir of note" GQ "Fossum shows us how the crime novel can be more than sheer entertainment... Well-written and gripping" Dagbladet "Karin Fossum is among our foremost authors, regardless of genre. This because of her unique ability to create real people and her deep understanding of the human soul. She has always mastered this, but never better than in The Drowned Boy" Drammens Tidende "Among Fossum's finest novels...a strong literary quality and quivering suspense" Dagsavisen "Reading a Karin Fossum novel is always a wonderful, almost meditative, experience. Even though she writes about horrible crimes, her compassion and intelligence shine through, and by the time you reach the final page you're left feeling irrevocably changed - for the better. Her latest, The Drowned Boy, is right up there among her best" Reading Matters." ;
