I am currently reading the latest Karin Fossum book to be translated into English - I Can See in the Dark. I am four chapters in and it looks like her main character, Riktor, is going to equal some of her characters in previous books. Fossum is really good at creating disturbed and interesting characters.
A fellow Fossum fan! Oh I have to ask if you've read "When the devil holds the candle"? That's my favorite, it's horrible in the good way.
I have read "When the Devil Holds the Candle
and thought it was excellent but He Who Fears the Wolf
is my favourite Fossum novel. I think that the character of Erkki Johrma is one of the best developed and most tragic characters I have ever come across. Inspector Sejer is my second favourite police inspector coming in behind Arnaldur Indridason's Inspector Erlendur.
