I have read several books in the Detective Joona Linna series and this is the eighth and does not disappoint. Although part of a series it can be read as a stand-alone story. The action begins immediately with the abduction of a young girl, who is later found murdered. It ramps up quickly as Joona links another case with the same MO. He is relentless and will stop at nothing to catch the perpetrator, including going against the orders of his superiors.
Lars Kepler writes so well it’s a pleasure to read his stories. The constant descriptions keep you right in the story, allowing you to see what he sees. At times, the action is so fast it’s breathtaking. It’s one of those books you find impossible to put down.
The book is quite graphic at times so it won’t be for everyone, although I really enjoyed reading it. Oh, and it’s a terrific ending.
Many thanks to #NetGalley, #LarsKepler and #BonnierBooksUK for this free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
