Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The chilling new novel from Norwegian superstar Jørn Lier Horst. This is Nordic Noir at its spine-tingling best.

After four years behind bars, notorious serial killer Thomas Kerr is ready to talk. 

And Chief Inspector William Wisting has been waiting to listen. 

Kerr has finally agreed to lead the police to his final victim's grave. But the expedition goes horribly wrong after his escape deep into the Norwegian forest.

Wisting must launch a frantic search to find this cold-blooded killer before he strikes again.

But the body of another woman, killed weeks before, has been found. Murdered in the same way as Kerr's victims. 

Is there a copycat killer on the loose? 

And what will happen once Kerr and his apprentice are reunited? 

As the clock counts down to the next murder, Wisting must put everything on the line to stop a terrifying evil which threatens to engulf his city.

Not as good as previous

No as good as the previous books in the series. The translation is strange, very laboured English.
The narration is annoying
Don't go there

Violent

It was a very difficult read because of the very graphic violence on women. The darkest one of all until now. Many parts left me with stirring feeling and upset me

Dispite the good ratings, sadly not for me.

This book has excellent reviews but for some reason it was not for me. I found that it did not hold my attention at all. Dissapointed.
