    Mapping the minds of murderers is what Dr. Tony Hill does better than anyone. So when a twisted killer starts targeting psychologists across Northern Europe, he's the obvious choice to track the executioner's mental and physical journey.

    Story

    It's possible I didn't care for this book because it was abridged and skipped too many passages that might have connected the story more smoothly. However, this is about the 4th book I've read - ***Spoiler Here*** where a "look alike" or twin has been inserted into an investigation. It's a plot device that's really wearing thin, never believable and I expect better from Val McDermid. I realize she wants to take her characters outside their comfort zone, but this wasn't very well executed in my opinion. AND, on top of that, the narrator is American and can't figure out what he wants to do with his accents. He's not consistent and it's almost comical. Lastly, it really annoys me when fairly common terms like: "Die Welt" (German newspaper) are mispronounced. In German "Die" is pronounced like "Dee" not "Die". And, "W' is pronounced like a "V".
