I roundly "second" this recommendation. Like you, I picked this up forgetting I had not at all liked the last two of hers I had read (Indian Bride and When the Devil Holds the Candle). Inspector Sejer is likable again, the other characters are interesting and real and Fossum's device of sort of letting you in on the solution ahead of time actually moves the story along and increases your interest. This is as good, I think, as He Who Fears the Wolf--if not even better.
