Teasing Tuesday CB

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read

• Open to a random page

• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to

My Teaser this week is from The Murder of Harriet Krohn by Karin Fossum

The Murder of Harriet Krohn


Charlo Torp has problems.
He’s grieving for his late wife, he’s lost his job, and gambling debts have alienated him from his teenage daughter. Desperate, his solution is to rob an elderly woman of her money and silverware. But Harriet Krohn fights back, and Charlo loses control.
Wracked with guilt, Charlo attempts to rebuild his life. But the police are catching up with him, and Inspector Konrad Sejer has never lost a case yet.
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 afterwards?

My Teaser

He gazes up at the large H&M posters. They cover the front of the block on his right. How strange, he thins, that the buxom girl in the lacy underwear is naked on a bleak evening like this. She looks relaxed in spite of it all, though he is wet and chilled, but this is hardly something that troubles him.

  1. Cleo – I hope you’ll enjoy this one all the way through. I’m a Karin Fossum fan. And the snippet you’ve shared certainly sounds intriguing.


    1. I have to admit this is my first from this author and it took me a while to get into it but now I’m flying through.. It isn’t often a whole story is told from the murderer’s perspective.
