HE WILL TRAP YOU IN A WORLD OF TERROR

The groundbreaking first novel in the bestselling Joona Linna thriller series. Perfect for fans of Jo Nesbo.

Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm.

Detective Inspector Joona Linna is faced with a boy who witnessed the gruesome murder of his family. He's suffered more than one hundred knife wounds and is comatose with shock.

Linna's running out of time. The killer's on the run and, seemingly, there are no clues. Desperate for information, Linna enlists disgraced specialist Dr Erik Maria Bark, a hypnotist who vowed never to practice again.

As the hypnosis begins, a long and terrifying chain of events unfurls with reverberations far beyond Linna's case.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`The thriller that's taking Europe by storm...ferocious, visceral storytelling that wraps you in a cloak of darkness. It's stunning.' DAILY MAIL

`One of the best - if not the best - Scandinavian crime thrillers I've read.' RED

`All the hallmarks of a classic...a brutal crime, a missing child and an irresistible detective. this is crime writing at its most devilishly involving.' MARIE CLAIRE

`If the post-Stieg Larsson boom was ebbing, Kepler promises to revitalise the genre by bringing a sulphurous whiff of Hannibal Lecter to this case.' FINANCIAL TIMES

`A genuine chiller...commanding and deeply scarifying stuff.' INDEPENDENTFar more energetic than Henning Mankell, as socially involved as Larsson but a better writer, Kepler matches the great Jo Nesbo for gothic excitement.' WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN
