Fossum, Karin, The Murder of Harriet Krohn

Charlo Torp, a former gambler who’s recently kicked the habit, makes his way through the slush to Harriet Krohn’s apartment, flowers in hand. Certain that paying off his debt is the only way to start a new life and win his daughter’s forgiveness, Charlo plans to rob the old woman’s antique silver collection. What he doesn’t expect is for her to put up a fight. 
The following morning Harriet is found dead, her silver missing, and the only clue Inspector Sejer finds in the apartment is an abandoned bouquet. Charlo should be relieved, but he’s heard of Sejer’s amazing record — the detective has solved every case he’s ever been assigned to. 
Told through the eyes of a killer, The Murder of Harriet Krohn poses the question: how far would you go to turn your life around, and could you live with yourself afterward?
