Review:

Reads like a real-life Scandinavian crime novel -- Elizabeth Day, Observer

It's appalling, it's true, and it's utterly phenomenal reading --Leif GW Persson

Book Description:

'Sweden's most suspenseful murder mystery may not be a fictional account from Stieg Larsson or Henning Mankell. It may end up being the true story of Thomas Quick' The Wall Street Journal

Book Description Canongate Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Main. Language: English. Brand new Book. 'I wonder what you'd think of me if you found out that I've done something really serious . . .'So begin the confessions of Thomas Quick - Scandinavia's most notorious serial killer. In 1992, behind the barbed wire fence of a psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane, Thomas Quick confessed to the murder of an eleven-year-old boy who had been missing for twelve years. Over the next nine years, Quick confessed to more than thirty unsolved murders, revealing he had maimed, raped and eaten the remains of his victims. In the years that followed, a fearless investigative journalist called Hannes Rastam became obsessed with Quick's case. He studied the investigations in forensic detail. He scrutinised every interrogation, read and re-read the verdicts, watched the police re-enactments and tracked down the medical records and personal police logs - until finally he was faced with a horrifying uncertainty. In the spring of 2008, Rastam travelled to where Thomas Quick was serving a life sentence. He had one question for Sweden's most abominable serial killer. And the answer turned out to be far more terrifying than the man himself . . . Seller Inventory # AA99781782110705
