    When I had finished reading the last page, I felt like I had been dumped out of a moving vehicle onto a quiet countryside road in the middle of nowhere For an instant I thought, Is there a Part II This book is a quick, fun read and you become addicted to the situation and the characters early in the book the addiction becomes increasingly stronger as you continue to read on But there are no easy answers to who is the guilty culprit Someone confesses, but is he a victim of mind control In When I had finished reading the last page, I felt like I had been dumped out of a moving vehicle onto a quiet countryside road in the middle of nowhere For an instant I thought, Is there a Part II This book is a quick, fun read and you become addicted to the situation and the characters early in the book the addiction becomes increasingly stronger as you continue to read on But there are no easy answers to who is the guilty culprit Someone confesses, but is he a victim of mind control Inspector Sejer has a definite view but it doesn t seem like there is any hard core evidence that would convict the suspect You re left wondering how things will play out Sadly enough, you get a sense of what it must be like to be an investigator, who spends hours trying to sort out the facts, who ends up with no real evidence, yet has a pretty good idea who the criminal is, and how frustrating that must be essentially, the book mirrors real life, but it s not what we want at the end We want happy endings and and all the pieces of the puzzle in place Fossum gives us one bone, however the character who marries the Indian woman learns of her true feelings for him, of which he was becoming insecure As for the rest of the story, since the book was first published in 2001, it s pretty safe to say that we re on our own, dangling in time, wishing someone Karin would email us the outcome I still recommend the book

    This Norwegian mystery was a strange little book It held my interest, but I wasn t so thrilled with the characters Except for Poona the Indian bride , the female characters were not very bright or sane or likeable Marie was okay I guess but she was in a coma for most of the book The police officers were too good to be true And the main character, Gunder was the world s sweetest most devoted man living a fantasy until August 20th when his charmed life completely turned upside down I kep This Norwegian mystery was a strange little book It held my interest, but I wasn t so thrilled with the characters Except for Poona the Indian bride , the female characters were not very bright or sane or likeable Marie was okay I guess but she was in a coma for most of the book The police officers were too good to be true And the main character, Gunder was the world s sweetest most devoted man living a fantasy until August 20th when his charmed life completely turned upside down I kept waiting for obvious connections that never appeared and at the end, the book just sort of stopped, with us assuming at least one character is in danger and another is accused of a murder that we don t know if he committed The beauty of mysteries is seeing if you can solve it before the author tells you what happened In this book all speculation is wasted since we ll never really know

    This book was an easy read, with many interesting characters, a good flow, moments of mystery and moments of suspense I thoroughly enjoyed picking the book up every night, hoping to find outand to try and guess who the murderer was However, the ending disappointed me.I usually judge a book by the ending If it is a good ending, I will say the whole book was good even if it started out less well In this case, the book was great, but the mediocre ending ruined it for me The problem was, This book was an easy read, with many interesting characters, a good flow, moments of mystery and moments of suspense I thoroughly enjoyed picking the book up every night, hoping to find outand to try and guess who the murderer was However, the ending disappointed me.I usually judge a book by the ending If it is a good ending, I will say the whole book was good even if it started out less well In this case, the book was great, but the mediocre ending ruined it for me The problem was, it was too ambiguous There were many suspects, and we never found out who truly did it and what was their motive Hours after I finished reading the book, it s still on my mind as I try to recount past details and to figure out who the murderer was I guess this lasting feeling was the author s goal, but it does not please me I love reading a mystery and then a perfect conclusion, and feeling all the puzzle pieces come together, leaving you with a feeling of amazement This was not the case All that I was left with was a feeling of emptiness and confusion.Here are some parts of the story which I felt were left uncomplete SPOILERS Linda She started out as a rather ordinary character, but by the end of the book, she had became quite a psychopath, with an unhealthly obsession with Jacob Skarre We never know what happened with her did she kill Jacob, as she was planning Was she telling the truth about the car she saw Was she telling the truth about the time she got attacked by a man If so, who was this man that attacked her at night Mode Was he the muderer Many clues point towards it he drives a white Saab, which Gunder saw speeding away after the muder The fact that he had a bowling ball was emphasized it would make the perfect murder weapon And he truly had no alibi, since he left the bowling alley before the murder occured All clues point towards him, yet this character received little attention during the book, and I have no clue what his motive would be.Poona Why did she leave her suitcase in the cafe And was Einar telling the truth The book emphasized that the suitcase is very big surely you cannot simply forget something like that.Lillian Was she really with Goran that night Goran Is he the murderer The author leaves you with a feeling that he is not, and that Sejer manipulated him to give a false confession However, how did he know some key details like her small bag which was the shape of a banana Sejer said it was the shape of a srawberry once, and another time he said it was the shape of a melon, to trick Goran.Anders Kolding Many clues also pointed towards him in the book He messed around at the gas station shop and left at the same moment as Poona and could have easily taken her He also bought a car battery, the perfect murder weapon.Writing this, I realise how many unresolved parts there are in this story I wish there wereanswers, but the ambigious ending certainly made the book memorable Therefore I give it 3 stars

    Fossum takes quite a different approach to the murder mystery genre than we usually see, built in a different sensibility Yes, there is a murder, a brutal murder There is an investigation But the focus here ison the quirks of fate that led the victim to be where she was, when she was, and on the husband left behind The tale is also about the people in this small Norwegian town village, what they ve seen, what they imagine, and why they don t talk the level of secrecy is astonishing I Fossum takes quite a different approach to the murder mystery genre than we usually see, built in a different sensibility Yes, there is a murder, a brutal murder There is an investigation But the focus here ison the quirks of fate that led the victim to be where she was, when she was, and on the husband left behind The tale is also about the people in this small Norwegian town village, what they ve seen, what they imagine, and why they don t talk the level of secrecy is astonishing It s a fascinating portrayal of all involved Of course there is a mystery, but we seetragedy, heartbreak, and acceptance than anything else I m sure that if I readby this author they won t all get five stars This is just such a different approach to the thing that it left me stunned Spoiler After reading the entire book, including the investigation, arrest, interrogation, and , I m still not sure who done it And that actually isn t as important as one might think, all in all

    I m a big fan of Karen Fossum and have enjoyed going through her books, reading one about every three months as I catch up on all that she has written THE INDIAN BRIDE is the fourth book in the Konrad Sejer series, I believe It is a book where you will definitely enjoy the journey, but the destination might leave a sour taste in your mouth It takes some getting used to, but I ve grown to love the structure of Fossum s novels in which Sejer and his partner Jacob Skarre don t appear until chap I m a big fan of Karen Fossum and have enjoyed going through her books, reading one about every three months as I catch up on all that she has written THE INDIAN BRIDE is the fourth book in the Konrad Sejer series, I believe It is a book where you will definitely enjoy the journey, but the destination might leave a sour taste in your mouth It takes some getting used to, but I ve grown to love the structure of Fossum s novels in which Sejer and his partner Jacob Skarre don t appear until chapter five The first four chapters introduce Gunder, a lonely man who, after getting a traveling book from his sister, decides to go to India to try and find a wife He meets, woos, and makes plans to return home with Poona Bai, a lovely Indian woman Through a horrific string of events he can t control, Gunder misses picking Poona up at the airport, and Poona never arrives at his house Later, he hears of a murder in his small town, and his life spirals out of control Sejer and Skarre are on the case, interviewing everyone from the flaky, obsessed 16 year old girl to the old man who lived close to where the body was found Fossum writes in a way that keeps you turning the page, waiting for the next revelation from her twisted cast of characters.The ending perhaps leaves some unanswered questions and makes the reader doubt Sejer and his methods That is the major problem with this book, but also a strength because it is perhaps truer to life than we might hope

    4.5 stars This is my first book by this author and I loved it I like a lot of Scandinavian mysteries psychological thrillers and this is no exception There is a lot of ambiguity, almost as though there isthan one truth I look forward to my next one by this author

    After having read When the Devil Holds the Candle, I knew I was in for something unusual when I picked up another of Karin Fossun s Inspector Sejer s books This one, The Indian Bride, as did the earlier book, features action that takes place almost outside of Inspector s Sejer s investigation Fossum succeeds in developing parallel narratives of Sejer and the character Gunder, who goes in search of a wife in India Throughout the book, as in the earlier book, the reader always knowsthan I After having read When the Devil Holds the Candle, I knew I was in for something unusual when I picked up another of Karin Fossun s Inspector Sejer s books This one, The Indian Bride, as did the earlier book, features action that takes place almost outside of Inspector s Sejer s investigation Fossum succeeds in developing parallel narratives of Sejer and the character Gunder, who goes in search of a wife in India Throughout the book, as in the earlier book, the reader always knowsthan Inspector Sejer, who seems almost purposefully obtuse at times This may strike one as strange until it becomes clear that murder investigations probably work that way in reality It is only in Law and Order land that the detectives are ahead of the villain in every episode.The conclusion of The Indian Bride is satisfying, but not in the ordinary way that murder mystery conclusions are satisfying And one of the most satisfying aspects of the book is the unique cast of Norwegian characters who people the story

    When will I learn not to rent audios for Nordic crime fiction I hope that I m not ethnocentric, but I couldn t keep the foreign sounding names for these Norwegian characters and towns straight in my head I became frustrated, which diminished my enjoyment of this story I ve no doubt that it is a better novel that my rating indicates.

    I ll only say that I had a difficult time putting it down My husband s review sums it up well There was a touch of guilt in everyone, which put them in a bad light, sometimes quite undeservedly The ruthlessness of it, digging into other people s lives, was the part of the job he disliked most Karin Fossum s Nordic noir hero Inspector Sejer is back to delve into the lives of the 2,000 souls in Elvestad, a Norwegian village so interested in protecting one another that the truth of a brutal cri I ll only say that I had a difficult time putting it down My husband s review sums it up well There was a touch of guilt in everyone, which put them in a bad light, sometimes quite undeservedly The ruthlessness of it, digging into other people s lives, was the part of the job he disliked most Karin Fossum s Nordic noir hero Inspector Sejer is back to delve into the lives of the 2,000 souls in Elvestad, a Norwegian village so interested in protecting one another that the truth of a brutal crime would never surface but for Sejer s persistence The town comes to see how their own slow, steady, dependable Gunder Jomann really did the unimaginable and traveled to India where he met and married Poona Bai Now with her tragically and savagely killed, everyone has seen something they don t want to share with investigators lest they get the wrong idea.This uncommonly good work of detective fiction is at its best in the the author s attention to the inner life of the people that populate the village, like this observation of a mother and her grown son Sejer was reminded of curling The mother was like a broom, the way she swept potential obstacles away from her son s path so that he would slide effortlessly straight into the goal He had seen it many times The details of the mystery are left a bit untidy, defying neat conclusions that wrap up every action and motive The Indian Bride is all thefinely crafted for these complications and uncertainties
