BOOK DESCRIPTION
IF YOU FIND ONE, HE'S ALREADY FOUND YOU....
The heart-pounding debut from the creator of the hit Scandinavian television show The Killing.
A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.

Examining the dolls, forensics makes a shocking discovery - a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, a government minister's daughter who had been kidnapped and murdered a year ago.
A tragic coincidence - or something more twisted?
To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man's gruesome clues.
Because it's clear that the madman is on a mission that is far from over.

MY REVIEW

The Chestnut Man takes the police procedural/crime novel to another level. With a psychopath murdering women who have been accused of abuse, disfiguring the victim and leaving a chestnut man as a calling card, we have the murder squad on the case. Made up of one detective hoping to transfer to another division and another sent down from his position at Europol, this team with a shaky beginning must find a way to solve these crimes. This novel has great character development and a cinematic quality that puts you right in the middle of the action. The race against the clock and the tension are palpable. Even with a fast pace I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and flew through the 500+ pages. If it weren't for other responsibilities this would definitely be a one sitting read as even when I had to put it down I couldn't wait to pick it back up. I absolutely loved this one, the twists and turns and surprising conclusion kept me on my toes the entire time. With a bit of an open ending I'm hoping it becomes a series. If you like your crime thrillers dark, complex and well thought out, I can't recommend this one high enough!!!
