Lieneke Dijkzeul

Lieneke Dijkzeul (b. 1950), began as a children’s book author. Her novels De tweede viool (The Second Violin, 1991), Een muis met klauwen (A Mouse with Claws, 1993) and Kortsluiting (Short Circuit, 1996) were all nominated for the shortlist of the Dutch Children’s Jury. She published her first adult novel in 2006, the psychological thriller De stille zonde (Silent Sin). In 2007, she followed this up with Koude lente (Cold Spring), her second book with Paul Vegter in the lead role. Vegter is a greying middle-aged detective, voluntarily making way for younger, less experienced colleagues. The successful series continued with De geur van regen (The Scent of Rain, 2009), Verloren zoon (Lost Son, 2011) en Wat overblijft (What Remains, 2012).

During a school reunion, an English teacher is murdered. There are no witnesses and apparently no motive. While the police launch a search for the killer on the basis of extremely unsubstantial evidence, the reader is given insight into the aftermath, into the private lives of those participating in the reunion. The psychological tension between two of these former students, who rather hastily decide to start living together, is a particularly interesting aspect.
