When the Devil Holds the Candle
By Karin Fossum

Either somebody just slid an ice cube down your back or you're reading the opening pages of When the Devil Holds the Candle, a psychological tour de force by Norwegian thriller writer Karin Fossum. A handsome, thuggish teenager disappears, and his tormenter is a lonely, crazed old lady whose mind sucks you in like the most Poe-ish of maelstroms.
