The first Inspector Sejer mystery is available for the first time in English.

Eva Magnus is a struggling artist and the divorced mother of seven-year-old Emma. One afternoon she and Emma are walking by the river when an unknown man’s body floats to the surface of the icy water. She tells her daughter to wait patiently while she calls the police, but when she reaches the phone box Eva dials another number altogether.

When the police discover the body, it doesn’t take long for Inspector Sejer and his team to determine that the man, Egil, died in a violent attack. But Egil has been missing for months, and the trail to his killer has gone cold. It’s as puzzling as another unsolved case on Sejer’s desk: the murder of a prostitute who was found dead just three days before Egil went missing.

Sejer sets to work piecing together the fragments of these two impossible cases; soon enough he realizes that they might not be as separate as they had seemed.

Gripping and thought-provoking, Eva’s Eye is Karin Fossum’s first novel featuring the iconic Inspector Sejer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A truly great writer and explorer of the human mind.”

    Jo Nesbø, New York Times bestselling author of Blood on Snow, praise for the author

  • “Fossum’s first Inspector Konrad Sejer mystery has lyrical, emotionally intense writing and many twists and turns, but the ending turns into a surprise that gathers all the strands into a complicated solution. Part of the story’s appeal is the extended look at the characters’ families, which brings out all the complications in even loving relationships.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “Eva’s transition from struggling painter and single mother to something new and unpredictable will delight fans searching for the next diverting Scandinavian mystery. While Eva steals the center stage from Sejer, her increasingly fraught decisions give this dark police procedural warmth despite the frigid environs.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Fossum’s signature style of unveiling the story through the voices of everyone touched by the murder illuminates the crime’s tragedies and ensures a steady flow of story-twisting revelations…A match for Ruth Rendell’s and Sophie Hannah’s subtle, chilling psychological tales.”


  • “Gather[es] tremendous suspense as it builds to a shattering climax…This tour de force doesn’t have the remorseless wall-to-wall creepiness of Sejer’s most chilling cases. But it’s more than a worthy introduction to one of Norway’s leading cops for newcomers and a treasure for fans.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “This first in the Police Inspector Konrad Sejer series is engagingly presented by Steven Crossley. His warm, conversational style is ideal for Sejer, who is always calm and considerate, no matter the situation…Crossley excels at portraying Eva’s father, a tired but spirited old gent whom Eva is close to. However, Crossley’s best creation is Maja Durban, Magnus’ old school friend…Crossley’s understated narration of the story’s climax is far more terrifying than a highly emotional one.”
