Black Seconds by Karin Fossum

This is the fifth book translated into English by Norweigian author Fossum. It's in the Inspector Sejer series. Fossum is a brilliant writer. You care about the victim and the people who commit the crimes (at least in this one) and Konrad Sejer, the police detective, who is a very compassionate man. This story is about the disappearance of Ida Joner, a lovely 9 year old girl. The tension is taut as you follow Sejer and his younger partner, Jacob Skarre, through the details of the case. I highly recommend this series. I can't wait for the next one.
