Publisher's Summary

The number-one Swedish thriller by the author of The Hypnotist and The Fire Witness. He's Sweden's most prolific serial killer. Jurek Walter is serving a life sentence. Kept in solitary confinement, he is still considered extremely dangerous by psychiatric staff.
He'll lull you into a sense of calm.
Mikael knows him as The Sandman. Seven years ago, he was taken from his bed along with his sister. They are both presumed dead. He has one target left. When Mikael is discovered on a railway line, close to death, the hunt begins for his sister. To get to the truth, Detective Inspector Joona Linna will need to get closer than ever to the man who stripped him of a family; the man who wants Linna dead.

Terrifying

Saul Reichlin is a master of foreign-language thriller audio, and he's used to really scary effect in this Scandi-horror with a kick-ass heroine and an even more kick-ass hero. The villain is the most frightening yet in the series. Must-listen

Excellent book

Lars kelper is fast becoming one of my fave authors, the detailed descriptions in his book could easily of been too much but he manages to use them to enhance the tone of the novel - this was a fantastic book with lots of surprises I would highly recommend it on audible as the reader is amazing
