The No 1 Swedish thriller by the author of The Hypnotist and The Fire Witness

He's Sweden's most prolific serial killer.

Jurek Walter is serving a life sentence. Kept in solitary confinement, he is still considered extremely dangerous by psychiatric staff.

He'll lull you into a sense of calm.

Mikael knows him as "the sandman". Seven years ago, he was taken from his bed along with his sister. They are both presumed dead.

He has one target left.

When Mikael is discovered on a railway line, close to death, the hunt begins for his sister. To get to the truth, Detective Inspector Joona Linna will need to get closer than ever to the man who stripped him of a family; the man who wants Linna dead.

Absolutely unreal! Every time I read a Lars Kepler book, I am totally transported into the story. From the first page, I am breathless and turning pages so fast they are smoking!

This story, like all the others, grabs you right from the start, with the creepiest killer since Hannibal Lecter. Thinking about Jurek Walter will keep you up at night and give you nightmares. The inventiveness of the husband and wife team of Kepler is one of the best in the business.

The first Scandinavian book I ever read was Kepler's 'The Hypnotist' and every time I read one of their books, I am reminded why this is my favorite genre.

My only complaint (and believe me, it is nothing to do with the writing) is that they are not translated into English and published in the US quickly enough for me!
