This is a signed first edition in excellent condition. It was published by Blue Door in 2011. 'Tumba, Sweden. A triple homicide, all the victims from the same family, captivates Detective Inspector Joona Linna, who demands to investigate the grisly murders - against the wishes of the national police. The killer is at large, and it appears that the elder sister of the family escaped the carnage; it seems only a matter of time until she, too, is murdered. But where can Linna begin? The only surviving witness is an intended victim - the boy whose mother, father, and little sister were killed before his eyes. Whoever committed the crimes intended for this boy to die: he has suffered more than one hundred knife wounds and lapsed into a state of shock. He's in no condition to be questioned. Desperate for information, Linna sees one mode of recourse: hypnotism. He enlists Dr. Erik Maria Bark to mesmerize the boy, hoping to discover the killer through his eyes. It's the sort of work that Bark had sworn he would never do again - ethically dubious and psychically scarring. When he breaks his promise and hypnotizes the victim, a long and terrifying chain of events begins to unfurl.'

Read the number one Scandinavian crime bestseller taking the world by storm
Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm.
Detective Inspector Joona Linna is faced with a boy who witnessed the gruesome murder of his family. He’s suffered more than one hundred knife wounds and is comatose with shock.
Linna’s running out of time. The killer’s on the run and, seemingly, there are no clues. Desperate for information, Linna enlists disgraced specialist Dr Erik Maria Bark, a hypnotist who vowed never to practice again.
As the hypnosis begins, a long and terrifying chain of events unfurls with reverberations far beyond Linna’s case.Review:
‘The thriller that’s taking Europe by storm…ferocious, visceral storytelling that wraps you in a cloak of darkness. It’s stunning.’
‘All the hallmarks of a classic…Tense, clever and multilayered…this is crime writing at its most devilishly involving.’
‘If the post-Stieg Larsson boom was ebbing, Kepler promises to revitalise the genre by bringing a sulphurous whiff of Hannibal Lecter to this case…it’s a pulse-pounding debut that is already a native smash.’
‘A genuine chiller…commanding and deeply scarifying stuff.’ THE INDEPENDENT
‘A rollercoaster ride of a thriller full of striking twists.’
MAIL ON SUNDAY
‘Riddled with irresistible, nail-biting suspense, this first-class Scandinavian thriller is one of the best I’ve ever read.’ AUSTRALIAN WOMEN’S WEEKLY
‘An horrific and original read.’
