Publisher's Summary

It starts with a drunk man killing a boy as he hits him with his car. Thinking no one has seen him, he feels he's off the hook. Until he receives a message telling him that the sender knows what he's done, and unless he pays him a ransom, to be left in a bag at a secluded men's room, he'll squeal. The killer does as instructed, but as he sees a young man leave with said bag, he then kills the young man.

Critic Reviews

"[Narrator Simon] Vance makes the most of a whodunit that mixes the intrigue of blackmail with an array of frustrated detectives. Listeners will lean in to see the villains get their due." (AudioFile)

One of Hakan's best.

Superb narration, nothing short of what's expected from Vance. Character development was spot on.

Always compelling

Nesser never disappoints. This one was interesting from the beginning when the bad guy started killings, first by accident and the rest for covering up.

The best yet...

The changing perspectives of narration and the increasingly intriguing plot kept my attention the entire time. Can't wait for the next book in English.
