Free read Brudd by Karin Fossum Karin Fossum ↠ 5 Summary Free download Brudd by Karin Fossum ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free A woman wakes up in the middle of the night A strange man is in her bedroom She lies there in silence paralyzed with fear The woman is an author and the man one of her characters one in a long line that waits in her driveway for the time when she'll tell their stori. I always breathe a sigh of relief on finishing a novel by Karin Fossum that I have made it through intact never mind that the process often feels as harrowing and traumatic as a slow evisceration Broken is a standalone work of true suspense that blurs the boundaries between fact and fiction and is uite different from the police procedural novels of Fossum which feature Inspector Konrad Sejer Indeed it is debatable which genre this novel fits into but either way it is an assault on the senses which invades the readers comfort zoneA fifty one year old author watches from her bedroom window the array of various characters who stand in her drive under the porch light and patiently wait for their stories to be told for it is her job to give life to them and that burden takes its toll Each is desperately hoping for a chance of her telling their story but one is impatient than the others jumping the ueue disrupting her sleep and breaking into the house to beseech the author to take up the rest of his story Given that the author in uestion is dependent on anti depressants sleeping pills and alcohol to salve her journey through each and every day she herself is as fragile as any of her characters The forty two year old single and self contained Alvar Eide is the character so keen for her to continue his story a perfectly orderly man undemanding and unassuming His life is dictated by routines and his solitary nature meaning he has no callers to his house and no friends to speak of He enjoys his job working in an art gallery and is a hardworking and honest employee with a true appreciation for the artwork that covers the wallsAs Fossum takes up the story of Alvar we get to observe his daily travails daily visits to the deli counter to purchase his evening meal on his way home from work through to checking his tuft of hair comb over is retained in position More and he finds himself uestioning whether he is a good man needless to say that the test Fossum presents him with is a young heroin addict who drifts from one place to the next From sheltering in the gallery and Alvar giving her a cup of coffee and his scarf she is soon borrowing money and encroaching on his boundaries all in all presenting a new challenge Fossum throws test after test at Alvar and he reveals himself to be weak willed lacking in spine and completely out of his depth with the young woman Art touches Alvar and the Broken referred to in the title is a painting that the gallery acuires by a little known artist depicting a severed bridge that speaks to Alvar s soul and seems to echo his own problems with making connections and attachments to other people It literally reflects how he has always felt and his own exclusion from society and priced at seventy thousand kroner it would reuire his life savings to purchase Yet as he finds himself immune to the will of the young drug addict and the first significant human connection he has made he supplies her with money when she emotionally blackmails into financing her habit From the threat of turning tricks and placing herself in danger Alvar soon finds his savings drained and his chances of acuiring the painting reduced to nil with his decisions no longer a conscious choice The alternating chapters move between seeing Alvar s daily life and then seeing him rejoin the author Fossum who is telling his story apologising for being a nuisance whilst also aiming to flex some muscle and manipulate the direction of his tale Fossum argues that this is against the rules but tells him the date of November 18th when he will take control of his own life once again The fate awaiting Alvar is almost a forgone conclusion in Fossum s hands It is hard to apportion blame in Broken but when a person begs an author for the opportunity to be explored they surely cannot expect to dictate the events that unfold given the real test is how one copes in the aftermathWhose story is this Is Broken the tale of an author s torture as they wrangle with their creation or is Alvar Eide the main focus of the novel Whilst I remain in a uandary as regards this what I can say with certainty is that is the tale of two vulnerable outsiders on a path to destruction and the good intentions and of a gentle man to contribute to society come back to haunt both of them A bizarre and uniue tale with typically sparing prose and honesty meaning it is by no means an easy read That the finale of Broken sees surprises and several unexpected stings in the tail is Fossum s forte and this tale of an eccentric loner sent a backbone revealing challenge could only have come from her pen It is ambitious of Fossum to tell a story of an author battling it out with her protagonist and it presents the reader with an insight into the mind of a creative genius Posing uestions such as how much of an internal battle authors have with their characters and the creative process it confounded me how I became so drawn into a fictional tale of an even fictional character This sounds confusing but Broken is a story to be read re read and processed gradually over time Marvellous Her Small Town Hero year old author watches from her bedroom window the array of various characters who stand in her drive under the porch light and patiently wait for their stories to be told for it is her job to give life to them and that

Since I read so many mysteries I usually don t review them or add them to my Goodreads list but this is an exception After discovering Henning Mankel many years ago I really became a fan of the many Scandanavian mysterythriller authors Karin Fossum Norwegian is one of the best Although catagorized as mystery has the library mystery stickerthis is not part of her previous series This is a very literate exploration of the relationship between a writer and the characters heshe creates and how the author lives with them and in some cases how they take over hisher life I also really liked her discussion of art and how we choose art the main character works in an art gallery The story is suspenseful but it is much about our relationships and friendship and taking chances
