Publisher Description

“A full-throttle thriller in the tradition of classic Stieg Larsson, drenched in atmosphere and charged with adrenaline. Buckle up. You’ll gulp down every word. I loved this book.”—A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

The heart-pounding debut from the creator of the hit Scandinavian television show The Killing.

If you find one, he’s already found you.

A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.

His calling card is a “chestnut man”—a handmade doll made of matchsticks and two chestnuts—which he leaves at each bloody crime scene.

Examining the dolls, forensics makes a shocking discovery—a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, a government minister’s daughter who had been kidnapped and murdered a year ago.

A tragic coincidence—or something more twisted?

To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man’s gruesome clues.

Because it’s clear that the madman is on a mission that is far from over.

And no one is safe.

Excellent

This really is an excellent story well told though a bit long with a lot of set up detail. I’m hoping there will be another from this author because I will certainly give it a try.

Whim1954 ,

A rare procedural that lives up

To the name. The gruesome murders take place in Denmark and it’s interesting to see how the Danes and Europol handles a serial killer investigation. The names are tricky to our mostly English tongues but my trick is to just use the first few letters.

Couldn’t put it down

I loved this book and couldn’t stop reading it until I finished!
