The reason for this is because Eva's Eye has everything to do with the character of Eva Magnus and little to do with Konrad Sejer. Everything revolves around Eva's eye: her art (in which Sejer seems to be the only person who sees something meaningful), her young daughter Emma, how Eva views her life... everything. Eva Magnus is a fascinating character who grabs the focus of the book and runs away with it. As is also seen in The Murder of Harriet Krohn, Fossum seems to like to focus on a different character from time to time.
In comparison Konrad Sejer is merely interesting. If I'd read this book first, I would have admired Fossum's characterization of the title character and given a passing nod to Sejer's determination to solve these two puzzling cases-- but there just didn't seem to be enough about this oftentimes brilliant man to warrant my coming back for more.
All this makes it sound as though I did not enjoy the book. On the contrary-- I enjoyed it a lot. As the story gradually unfolds and I learned how deeply involved Eva is in every facet, I had to know more about this self-absorbed woman. At book's end I could only shake my head in disbelief (and admiration) at how well Fossum put this intricate plot together. And-- having already become familiar with Sejer, his personality and his deductive methods-- I could only admire him, too. I'm just glad I didn't read this book first.
Needing money, Eva considers doing something she regards as morally abhorrent, and sets off a chain of events that spin horribly out of control. The book includes a cabin-in-the-woods scene that is Fossum's scariest.
I've found Karin Fossum's books to be just as enjoyable on re-reads because, apart from knowing who done it, the characters are intriguing in their own right, even those who are a little twisted. There is always a point where I decide to abandon my work for the day and just sit and read the book to the end. I think Eva's Eye and The Indian Bride are her best.
