THE DEBUT NOVEL FROM THE CREATOR AND WRITER OF THE KILLING
The police make a terrible discovery in a suburb of Copenhagen. A young woman has been killed and dumped at a playground. One of her hands has been cut off, and above her hangs a small doll made of chestnuts.
Young detective Naia Thulin is assigned the case. Her partner is Mark Hess, a burned-out investigator who's just been kicked out of Europol's headquarters in The Hague. They soon discover a mysterious piece of evidence on the chestnut man - evidence connecting it to a girl who went missing a year earlier and is presumed dead, the daughter of politician Rosa Hartung. A man confessed to her murder, and the case is long since solved.
Soon afterwards, another woman is found murdered, along with another chestnut man. Thulin and Hess suspect that there's a connection between the Hartung case, the murdered women and a killer who is spreading fear throughout the country. But what is it?
Thulin and Hess are racing against the clock, because it's clear that the murderer is on a mission that is far from over . . .
"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.
