Pimeän ihmismielen hyytävän tarkka läpivalaisu. Karin Fossumin kirjoissa ei ole yksiulotteisen pahoja ihmisiä. On vain epäsuotuisia ja onnettomia olosuhteita, ja mahdollinen lapsensurma. Hieman alle puolitoistavuotias Tommy on hukkunut pihalampeen. Komisario Konrad Sejerin oikea käsi, Jacob Skarre, ei niele onnettomuusselityksiä. Hänen epäilyksensä herättää nuoren äidin, 19-vuotiaan Carmenin ristiriitainen käytös. Ruumiinavauksessa pikku-Tommyn keuhkoista löytyykin saippuavettä. Lukija viedään sisään Carmenin maailmaan tämän päiväkirjojen välityksellä. Niiden sivuilta löytyy tunteeton sosiopaatti, joka pyörittää lähipiiriään suvereenisti. Karin Fossum (s. 1954) on palkittu norjalainen rikoskirjailija, jonka teoksia on käännetty kymmenille kielille.
