Reviews

  • If you're in search of an antidote to the in-your-face energy of American crime fiction, this quiet, slender, bracingly bleak tale could well be it

    The Sunday Times
  • As a portrait of a community possessed by suspicion, The Water's Edge can scarcely be bettered

    Independent
  • It's heart-rending, sometimes cold, forensic writing; she pushes you into tight, uncomfortable corners. She's good

    Scotsman
  • It's difficult to out-creep Karin Fossum

    Time Out
  • An exceptionally fine story, Fossum's real narrative appeal rests on her ability to see the humanity in even the most wretched soul

    New York Times
