Inborn Kindle Edition
When a double murder takes place in a Norwegian village high school, a teenager finds himself subject to trial by social media … and in the dock. Bestselling, highly emotive and award-winning Nordic Noir…
‘One of the finest writers of the Nordic Noir genre’ Ragnar Jónasson
‘Satisfyingly tense and dark’ Sunday Times
‘Spine-chilling and utterly unputdownable’ Yrsa Sigurðardóttir
What turns a boy into a killer?
When the high school in the small Norwegian village of Fredheim becomes a murder scene, the finger is soon pointed at seventeen-year-old Even. As the investigation closes in, social media is ablaze with accusations, rumours and even threats, and Even finds himself the subject of an online trial as well as being in the dock … for murder?
Even pores over his memories of the months leading up to the crime, and it becomes clear that more than one villager was acting suspiciously … and secrets are simmering beneath the calm surface of this close-knit community. As events from the past play tag with the present, he’s forced to question everything he thought he knew. Was the death of his father in a car crash a decade earlier really accidental? Has a relationship stirred up something that someone is prepared to kill to protect?
It seems that there may be no one that Even can trust. But can we trust him?
A taut, moving and chilling thriller, Inborn examines the very nature of evil, and asks the questions: How well do we really know our families? How well do we know ourselves?

I’ve read all of Thomas’ novels, which have been consistently excellent, and this one is just as thrilling. In fact as I read it I kept thinking it almost came across as a film script. I loved the way it kept flipping from ‘Now’ to ‘Then’ gradually revealing the full story, turning everything I thought was happening into something quite different as I raced through the final pages.
The characters aren’t startling, apart from the police investigator, Yngve Mork. He catches the imagination.
The storyline unravels in two parts throughout- a cross examination in court and the actual events that lead to the questioning.
Others have gone into detail with the plot. I’ll not. Suffice to say that if you’re expecting a full on gripping book you’ll find disappointment. However, if you enjoy a well written puzzle, this will fit the bill.
