APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The creator of the Nordic noir TV series The Killing transports his immense talent from the screen to the page with this breathtaking debut novel. Set in Copenhagen, Soren Sveistrup’s disturbing thriller begins with the discovery of some brutally mutilated bodies and continues at a riveting pace, drawing you into a world of grief, evil and political chicanery. Full of the kind of complex, empathetic characters that made The Killing so enthralling, The Chestnut Man is split into short, sharp chapters that tempt you to read just one more until you realise you’ve stayed up all night. The ending is impossible to predict.

A slow start with a little too much background explanation/definition but within a few chapters totally gripping!
The Chestnut Man
A dark and disturbing Scandi novel, up there with the best, not a likeable female lead detective but her maverick side kick proves his worth.
