The Water's Edge, by Karin Fossum

Surprise! It's disturbing, tense, violent and depressing Scandanavian noir. Decent atmospherics, but the plot was a little thin, and, as I said, disturbing, tense, violent, and depressing, including the lighthearded elements of pedophilia, murder, domestic violence, children killing children, and I'm pretty sure there was a dead seal or something somewhere, but I skimmed that bit. I'm a bit of a wimp, really.
