Waterstones Thriller of the Month for November 2017

Karl Lundtsrom was breathing shallowly through his nose, and his Adam's apple was bobbing up and down as he spoke. Sofia felt physical disgust looking at him. She wasn't sure she wanted to hear more.

It starts with just one body - the hands bound, the skin covered in marks. 

Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg is determined to find out who is responsible, despite opposition from her superiors.

When two more bodies are discovered, it becomes clear that she is hunting a serial killer.

With her career on the line, Kihlberg turns to psychotherapist Sofia Zetterlund. Together, they expose a chain of shocking events that began decades ago - but will it lead them to the murderer before someone else dies?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The narrative slowly and surely exerts an inexorable grip; its multiple timeframes do not interrupt the unerring building of tension. And, as with the best of Scandinavian crime fiction, from Henning Mankell to Stieg Larsson, there is still room for an acute element of social commentary… you will find it to be among the most wide-ranging and forceful Scandinavian crime novels you have encountered.” - The Financial Times

"Very likely to be the most disturbing book you’ll read all year… there’s a fantastic twist in store, very well executed, and a successful conclusion for the complex web of evil Sund weaves over the course of the novel.” – The Observer

"The best crime novel of the year so far." - The Metro

"A compulsive page-turner." - Sunday Express 

"Compelling... we are left gasping for breath." - The Daily Mail

“Dark, twisty, completely gripping”

If you liked the Millenium trilogy by Steig Larsson then this is for you! Yes this is slightly on the hefty side at just over 700 pages, but I raced through it. I got so engrossed that the length of the book became... More

“Shamelessly twisted, hugely enjoyable...”

This one contains a multitude of extremely violent scenes of torture, child abuse, child trafficking and murder so definitely NOT for everyone.

At over 750 pages this is a huge tome which I devoured in just a few... More

“Enjoyable Nordic crime”

I am a big fan of Nordic/Scandi Noir, both in movies (The Killing, The Bridge) and in the written word. There is a certain style in the crime writing; very descriptive very character driven with a plot line always... More
