Inspector Konrad Sejer and his chief assistant Jacob Skarre do not work alone, but few of their colleagues matter in Karin Fossum's long-running Norwegian series. As their investigations play out, a counterpoint of social and philosophical commentary runs parallel to them, in brief passages of dialogue between Sejer and Skarre.
