This is my favorite Karin Fossum book to date--I think the Norwegians might be just a little too jaded and hardened amongst the Scandinavian authors to write murder mysteries--but this one proves me wrong. The main character is a Norwegian man that we can all relate to--a typical "work hard, save, oops I forgot to have a relationship--any relationship--with a woman", so he decides one day that he will take a trip to India, and find himself a wife--which miraculously he does, and does surprisingly well. They really click as a a couple, and within a short time, they are in love, married, and she is packing up her life in India and moving to Norway to be with him. Which is the beginning and the end of his happy story--the tales of prejudice and worse ring true and are very sad in this book-the inspector is wise and realistic, and the story is well told.
