Karin Fossum

The Caller


“Hell Begins Here,” says the card that detective Konrad Sejer finds outside his door late one night. Earlier that day the young couple Lily and Karsten found their baby in a pool of blood in the pram. The little community is plagued by events that frighten them all. But does the perpetrator intend to follow through or is it all a bad joke?

The Caller is Fossum’s tenth novel about Konrad Sejer.
