Publisher's Summary

The most chilling and terrifying serial killer thriller of the year, from international best seller Lars Kepler.

Sweden’s most notorious serial killer.

Jurek Walter was shot and killed years ago. The police moved on and managed to forget the darkness that had tainted their lives.

Has come back from the dead.

But now someone is leaving a trail of broken bodies across Sweden, and the clues all point to Walter. Detective Joona Linna is convinced his worst nightmare is becoming a reality: the man who tore apart his family has returned to finish the job.

He doesn’t just kill you. He buries your loved ones alive.

When Joona’s partner is taken - and locked inside an underground coffin - he finds himself with an impossible choice: leave her to die or walk into the trap set by the only man he ever feared.

"Gripping" and "page turner" are understatements

"Gripping" and "page turner" are understatements! This is one of my favorite Scandinavian series read by one of my favorite narrators. Just when you think they have written their best, the husband and wife team known as Lars Kepler produce another stunner. This is a carefully crafted and well ballanced book, with solid character development and a diabolical plot that just keeps surprising. A thought to be dead villain re-emerges to kill, maim and bury people alive and no-one is safe including Joona and his friends and family. Straight into the top tier of my library. If you haven't heard of this series you really are missing out on something special.

Superb!

Excellent story line . It keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through. As usual Saul Reichlin's narration is first class!

Too much of everything that is not good

I was so looking looking forward to this book, but what a massive disappointed this last instalment in the Joina linna story was. The author couple have always balanced their stories between the believable and unbelievable in a very captivating way. However this time around they seem to have been rushing the book out and goes overkill on the unbelievable side which kills of the interest in story very quickly and it just becomes annoying which is such a shame, as I now lost interest for any future books to come in this series. On top of it all, for the audio the total wrong choice of actor to read this type of story has been picked. He has a voice and pace that is much more suited to fantasy books and not thrillers. Especially when creating voices for Swedish Finnish that just makes them sound like a very slow thinking moomintroll, that would struggle to add 1+1 together. Which in this book the whole team of characters on the good side do over and over again. Big question, how can a 2 meter giant of serial killer with girl pearl earrings walk around freely in a city of Stockholm’s siZe! Sorry Kepler that’s one storyline too far to be fetched by anyone!

There are not enough superlatives available..

I have listened to this whole series on Audible and it is so well read and gripping. The standard of writing is breathtaking and each one as addictive as the last.
