‘He’d just learnt to walk’, she said. ‘He was sitting playing on his blanket, then all of a sudden he was gone.’

A 16-month-old boy is found dead drowned in a pond right by his home. Chief  Inspector Sejer is called to the scene as there is something troubling about the mother’s story. As even her own family turns against her, Sejer is determined to get to the truth.

A truly great writer and explorer of the human mind.

What I liked about this story is that Karin  put a twist in this story of a boy drowning who has Down’s Syndrome. One of my friend’s sister had a beautiful daughter with long eye lashes had a down’s Syndrome baby girl who sadly died before she one. And my daughters friend has a brother who is Down’s Syndrome who lives life to the full singing and dancing.
