*THE GRIPPING DEBUT NOVEL FROM THE CREATOR AND WRITER OF HIT TV SHOW THE KILLING*'Brilliant. Scandi noir is back with a bang with this sensational debut novel. The Stieg Larsson comparisons seem unfair - on Sveistrup.

He's quite simply in another league. *****' Metro_____________One blustery October morning in a quiet Copenhagen suburb, the police make a terrible discovery. A young woman is found brutally murdered with one of her hands missing.

Above her hangs a small doll made of chestnuts. Ambitious young detective Naia Thulin is assigned the case. Her partner, Mark Hess, is a burned-out investigator who's just been kicked out of Europol.

They soon discover a mysterious piece of evidence on the chestnut man - evidence connecting it to a girl who went missing a year earlier and is presumed dead; the daughter of politician Rosa Hartung. But the man who confessed to her murder is already behind bars and the case long since closed. Soon afterwards, a second woman is found murdered, along with another chestnut man.

Thulin and Hess suspect that there's a connection between the Hartung case and the murdered women. But what is it?Thulin and Hess are racing against the clock, because it's clear that the killer is on a mission that is far from over . .

. Fans of The Killing, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Jo Nesbo will love this debut thriller. _____________'A full-throttle thriller in the tradition of classic Stieg Larsson, drenched in atmosphere and charged with adrenaline.

Buckle up. You'll gulp down every word. I loved this book' A.
