The Waters Edge
by Karin Fossum
From The Jacket:A married couple, Reinhardt and Kristine Ris, are out for a Sunday walk when they discover the body of a boy and see the figure of a man limping away. They alert the police, but not before Reinhardt, to Kristine’s horror, kneels down and takes photographs of the dead child with his cell phone. Inspectors Konrad Sejer and Jakob Skarre begin to make inquiries in the little town of Solberglia. But then another boy disappears, and an explanation seems more remote than ever. Meanwhile, the Ris’s marriage starts to unravel as Reinhardt becomes obsessed with the tragic events and his own part in them.
I really enjoyed this quick read. The characters were excellent and it was very thought provoking.

As a fan of Karin Fossum I was excited to read "The Water's Edge" which won The Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Although the subject matter is quite disturbing as it deals with the murder of a child the story and the charatcters are excellent.
