Publisher's Summary

International best seller Samuel Bjork makes his US debut with a chilling and fast-paced thriller in which two detectives must hunt down a vengeful killer - and uncover the secret that ties each of them to the crime.
A six-year-old girl is found in the Norwegian countryside, hanging lifeless from a tree and dressed in strange doll's clothes. Around her neck is a sign that says, "I'm traveling alone."
A special homicide unit in Oslo reopens with veteran police investigator Holger Munch at the helm. Holger's first step is to persuade the brilliant but haunted investigator Mia Krüger, who has been living on an isolated island, overcome by memories of her past. When Mia views a photograph of the crime scene and spots the number one carved into the dead girl's fingernail, she knows this is only the beginning. Could this killer have something to do with a missing child abducted six years ago and never found or with the reclusive religious community hidden in the nearby woods?
Mia returns to duty to track down a revenge-driven and ruthlessly intelligent killer. But when Munch's own six-year-old granddaughter goes missing, Mia realizes that the killer's sinister game is personal, and I'm Traveling Alone races to an explosive - and shocking - conclusion.

Ready for a GREAT BOOK⁉️

First let me say that I am a pretty veracious reader ( and currently audio book listener) and this book is a great read/listen. I was captured prisoner early on and held captive until the last paragraphs. I will not give a synopsis of the story, that is available already... I WILL tell you that the characters are well developed, you WILL become attached to them, and you WILL NOT figure it ALL out until this talented Mr. Bjork deems it time! I LOVE that about him!!! Twists and turns, multiple storylines, this is a fun book.

If you opt to listen, this reader has done a wonderful job! Love the accent, she delivers an exceptional performance!

This author is being compared to Stieg Larsson, and Jo Nesbo... Yes! If you like those authors you will love Samuel Bjorn! Great characters! I can not WAIT for my next adventure with Mia Kruger and Holger Munch!!! Let's get his next book translated and to the US (and on audiobook) as soon as possible!!! 8-D

Hot Mess from Norway

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Fewer ultra-shrill elements, and fewer cliches.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Tighter structure. Fewer lengthy meanderings into material not relevant to the story.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Laura Paton?

Definitely. I'd like to hear her doing less highly-strung material.

Did I'm Traveling Alone inspire you to do anything?

Yes. It inspired me to read some non-fiction so my eye sockets could take a break from the frequent and extreme rolling they had to do over the last dozen or so of the chapters in this preposterous book.

Any additional comments?

The plot involves murdered children, drug addiction, and dodgy fundamentalists. If only the author had worked the immigration problem in somehow (eg, deceased Ukrainian stripper), he would have covered all the bases of Nordic Noir without needing to write an entire series.
