THE DEBUT NOVEL FROM THE CREATOR AND WRITER OF THE KILLING




Sveistrup keeps the reader gripped until the very end (Dagbladenes Bureau)

I was completely blown away by this debut novel (sidsesbogreol.dk)

Sveistrup sets new standards in crime (bogfriisen.dk)

Nerve-racking, you're sitting on the edge of your seat, and by the time you've finished the book you've got no nails left (Livetidukkehuset.dk)

Simply an unparalleled page-turner (Ord fra en bibliofil)

Absolutely fantastic crime novel. The plot keeps you gripped, and you always end up wanting to read just one more page. Nerve-racking. Nail-biting. Thrilling. Hair-raising (Krummeskrummelurer.dk)

Not all good scriptwriters can produce a detective story designed to be read rather than watched on TV. But Søren Sveistrup, the man responsible for The Killing, proves . . . that it can be done . . . The characters, the plot with its deep, eerie undercurrent of the unknown, and the intense, compelling manipulation of suspense are qualities reminiscent of The Killing (Marie Louise Toksvig)

This nerve-racking debut novel has a brilliant plot . . . (Ugebladet Søndag)

A powerful portrait of two intriguing detectives who are here to stay . . . (Vildmedkrimi.dk)

Simply so well written, well constructed and suspenseful. I've read a lot of fantastic crime novels, but this is far and away the best I've read in a long time. . . . insanely suspenseful and gripping (RandiGlensbo.dk)

The police make a terrible discovery in a suburb of Copenhagen. A young woman has been killed and dumped at a playground. One of her hands has been cut off, and above her hangs a small doll made of chestnuts.


Young detective Naia Thulin is assigned the case. Her partner is Mark Hess, a burned-out investigator who's just been kicked out of Europol's headquarters in The Hague. They soon discover a mysterious piece of evidence on the chestnut man - evidence connecting it to a girl who went missing a year earlier and is presumed dead, the daughter of politician Rosa Hartung. A man confessed to her murder, and the case is long since solved.


Soon afterwards, another woman is found murdered, along with another chestnut man. Thulin and Hess suspect that there's a connection between the Hartung case, the murdered women and a killer who is spreading fear throughout the country. But what is it?


Thulin and Hess are racing against the clock, because it's clear that the murderer is on a mission that is far from over . . .
