In a Stockholm city park, police discover the hideously abused body of a young boy.

But with the discovery of two more mutilated children's corpses, it becomes clear that a serial killer is at large.

This book gripped me from the start - and then everything you thought you knew was flipped. So many twists and turns. I can't recommend this highly enough - especially if you loved Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series.

When a troubled teenager disappears from an orphanage and is found murdered, her body arranged on a bed of feathers, veteran investigator Holger Munch and his team are called into the case. Star investigator Mia Kruger, on temporary leave while she continues to struggle with her own demons, jumps back on the team and dives headfirst into this case - just in time to decode the clues in a disturbing video of the victim before she was killed, being held prisoner like an animal in a cage.

The problem with series books is when they start to repeat. I loved book 1, and I loved Mia. But I don't want to keep going down the same hole with her. She needs to progress. I hope his next book shows that like many other in this genre.
