Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Fossum is admired by Ruth Rendell and you can see why'" * Daily Mail * "A contemporary Patricia Highsmith, her offbeat obsession with the psychology of the criminal mind, and the human cost of criminal activity, pays off handsomely yet again" * Irish Times * "It is a sign of Fossum's sophistication that the reader comes to empathise with the teenaged tormentor - a deliberate ploy which makes the double-twist ending all the more shocking" * Sunday Telegraph * "Fossum's Norway is an apposite setting for a long dark night of the soul" * Independent * "With a focus on characters and the impacts of crime, Fossum's psychological thrillers will appeal, in particular, to fans of Anne Holt and Henning Mankell" * Booklist *
