The Indian Bride by Karin Fossum

This is the most recent book in the Norwegiian series with Inspector Sejer. A lonely middle aged man goes to India to find a bride and actually falls in love with a waitress working in a restaurant near his hotel. They get married and he returns to Norway. She is to follow when she takes care of details at home. On the day of her arrival, he can't pick her up because his sister is in a near fatal car crash. This is how the novel begins. Fossum writes a great psychological mystery. The characters are dark and complex. I've loved the whole series but this one ends ambigiously and I'd love to discuss the ending with somebody.
