The Whisperer. Fans of the series will be familiar with the personality and style of Inspector Sejer and enjoy the compassion and empathy he shows to a woman held for a serious crime. Sejer allows protagonist Ragna Reigel tell her story and he listens closely and carefully, showing her respect. Fossum allows readers to enter into Ragna’s life in small bits surrounding Sejer’s interrogations. Ragna speaks very softly, hence the title, so we can imagine the patience and care Sejer shows her as he gives her time and space to speak up. Readers who enjoy finely written mysteries are those most likely to enjoy this novel and this series. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Whisperer from amazon.com.
