Publisher's Summary

Has anyone seen Andreas? Andreas's disappearance is a mystery to all, including his inseparable friend Zipp. But it’s not easy for Zipp to come forward with details of the last time he saw his friend - they had been following an old woman, an easy target for some quick cash, and Andreas boldly followed her into her home brandishing his knife, the next moment he was gone. Zipp waited anxiously outside but Andreas failed to reappear.
Inspector Sejer and his colleague Skarre are baffled but while the confusion in the outside world continues, a chilling and heart-stopping drama is unfolding inside the old woman's home. In a plot in the tradition of Stephen King, Fossum deploys her trademark skill of looking realistically, terrifyingly, into the minds of criminal and victim. Appearances aren't always to be believed, and people are not always what they seem.

Another great story by Karin Fossum

I love this author's books and have read most of them now. This was the first one I have listened to though on audio, but once I got used to it, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. She writes wonderful stories.
