Publisher's Summary

A mother and child are found brutally murdered in an old caravan on a remote piece of land. A bloody footprint is discovered at the scene, and Chief Inspector Sejer is called to investigate.
Meanwhile another mother, dying of cancer, confesses to her 21-year-old son that he is adopted. The man who abandoned them, whom the boy has become obsessed with, is not his real father.
Why do we lie to those closest to us? Hellfire delves deep into the dark heart of family and what drives people to commit the most horrific of crimes.

I have read all Karin Fossum books but this will be the last, the only good thing about this book was the narrator. he made a poor story worth listening to until the end. It was predictable all the way through with uninteresting characters. Very disappointed.

First Karin Fossum I haven't liked

This is because I'm squeamish. David Rintoul puts in a wonderful performance, as always, having said that. It's the story I don't like, I found it upsetting and nasty.

Also, not much of Sejer, and his personal life - and that's one of the things I liked the best about the other novels.

No spoilers, make up your own mind about the plot. It was just not to my taste this time.

Bit thin on the ground

Not this author's best book. Story line a bit thin and well padded out for about the first quarter with the daily life of a home care worker. So boring and I thought it would never end. It was a given early on whodunit. I love this author but she has written much better books than this one
