The epic sequel to Victim Without a Face.
ON A HOT SUMMER'S DAY.
A car speeds through the streets of Helsingborg. When it reaches the harbour, the driver keeps going, straight into the cold, dark sea.
A BODY IN THE WATER.
But it is not a suicide. The autopsy reveals that this man has been dead for some time. He was murdered two months ago, and his body has been deep frozen.
TURNS EVERYTHING COLDER.
As more bodies are discovered, Fabian Risk must hunt a killer with a mission: to preserve his victims, and create the perfect death...
I am not really a ScandiNoir person and don’t usually get on with Scandinavian literature – too dark and mysterious writing as a rule. But not this one. This novel was a major surprise to me and I thought really interesting.
Well written and with twists and turns you cannot guess until you read it.
Yes, you get some hints from the blurb but still the story surprises you and intrigues you, and you keep on reading until you get to the end and the final denouement. The plot was ingenious and well thought through.
