Description

#1 INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER • Detective Joona Linna is on the trail of a kidnapper who targets teenage girls and makes their worst nightmares a reality.
 
"Dark, disturbing, and chillingly relentless. Picture Hannibal Lecter sitting down to channel Stieg Larsson and then dial it way, way up!" —Brad Thor, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Black Ice

Sixteen-year-old Jenny Lind is kidnapped in broad daylight on her way home from school and thrown into the back of a truck. She’s taken to a dilapidated house, where she and other girls face horrors far beyond their worst nightmares. Though they’re desperate to escape, their captor foils everyone of their attempts.
 
Five years later, Jenny’s body is found hanging in a playground, strung up with a winch on a rainy night. As the police are scrambling to find a lead in the scant evidence, Detective Joona Linna recognizes an eerie connection between Jenny’s murder and a death declared a suicide years before. And when another teenage girl goes missing, it becomes clear to Joona that they’re dealing with a serial killer—and his murderous rampage may have just begun.

    Wow - this is very intense and parts are difficult to read. I appreciate that the book brings attention to the serious problems of violence against women, but it also implies that seriously mentally ill people are violent. That stereotype prevents people from getting help. At first, I thought this was about a person seeing ghosts like in The Shining, but then I thought Dennis was too good to be true. One part reminded me of an especially dark moment in The Nightingale. The ending was brighter and hopeful, but the reader had to go to some very dark and terrifying places to get there.

    Another fascinating and engrossing read from these authors. I love the Joona Linna character. I hope the authors have more books in the works for this character.
