The Drowned Boy

Willful. Karin Fossum’s recurring detective, Inspector Konrad Sejer, proceeds at a slower than usual pace in the eleventh installment of this series, The Drowned Boy. The title refers to sixteen-month-old Tommy Brandt who has drowned in what appears to be a tragic accident in a pond near his home. Sejer conducts his methodical investigation and readers are drawn into a psychological exploration of multiple characters, especially Tommy’s nineteen-year-old mother, Carmen, whose willful behavior catches Sejer’s close notice. The result is a very satisfying novel that can be read quickly by most readers and can provide insights into human nature to those readers who like to reflect on why we do what we do. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Drowned Boy from amazon.com.
