Four days later, a man and a woman are found deep in woodland, their throats slashed, the names "Hansel" and "Gretel" written on slips of paper pressed into their hands. As Jan Fabel, of the Hamburg murder squad, interprets this twisted imagery, it becomes clear that each new crime is a grisly reference to folk stories collected by the Brothers Grimm. The hunt is on for a serial killer who is exploring the darkest, most fundamental fears hidden in ancient fairy tales.

I really enjoyed this one. The narrator added a really dark dimension to an already disturbing story. Surprisingly deep and filled with interesting observations and theories this book really kept me interested for start to finish. I immediately went out and bought another audio book by the same author.
