really liked it
bookshelves: noir-fictioninternational, my-reviews

Karin Fossum is known as the Queen of Nordic Noir and I was quite excited to read her books, especially the series featuring Inspector Konrad Sejer. Although Don't Look Back is her second novel in the series, I did not find it difficult to pick up in the story line. Fossum describes each of her characters in depth, filling out each of their personalities perfectly. Sejer is meticulous and thorough but not ever to the point of becoming redundant or boring which often is found in crime novels. There is a reason that Fossum is famous world wide for her crime writing - she really is "that good." If you enjoy crime fiction or nordic noir then I highly recommend this series.
