THE GRIPPING DEBUT NOVEL FROM THE CREATOR AND WRITER OF HIT TV SHOW THE KILLING
The police make a terrible discovery - a young woman is found brutally murdered, with one of her hands cut off.
Next to her lifeless body hangs a strange doll made of chestnuts . . .
Assigned to the case is young and ambitious detective Naia Thulin, and Mark Hess, a burnt-out investigator who has just been kicked out of Europol. Struggling for leads they come across a mysterious piece of forensic evidence that doesn't quite fit.
It points to a missing girl, presumed dead - the daughter of politician Rosa Hartung. But a man has already confessed to her murder, and the case is long since closed.
The body count keeps rising, as another woman is found murdered. Once again, a chestnut man is found with the victim.
Thulin and Hess need to make the connection between all three crimes, and fast, because it's clear the murderer is on a mission that's far from over . . .
Fans of The Killing, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Jo Nesbø will love this debut thriller.
