Summary

The Sunday Times crime club star pick, from the million-copy author of the Scandinavian sensation Victim Without a Face

Two countries in the grip of winter. 

On the coldest day of the year, Sweden's Minister for Justice steps into a blizzard - and disappears. Who has taken him? That same night, across the Baltic Sea, a Danish celebrity is at her home, locked in and cut off from the snow. Then she hears footsteps in her living room. Who is in her house? 

Two killers stalk the streets.  

The police are soon hunting two different murderers. One is a surgeon who carefully dissects his victims. The other is a brutal predator who targets random women. Police in Stockholm and Copenhagen are closing in on their suspects. But as winter darkens and more people die, their investigations begin to unravel. 

Sometimes murder is just the beginning....

Critic reviews

"More gripping than Jo Nesbo, blacker than Stieg Larsson." (Tony Parsons)

'Atmospheric and complicated...with great cop characters and some imaginatively grisly perps." (Sunday Times)

"A gripping page-turner of the highest order." (C. J. Box.)

Not for me

I am an avid book reader and it is not very often that I want a book to end... I found this book disjointed, full of holes in the plot and totally rubbish... however, i had to finish it out of sheer desperation. I have not read any of Stefan Ahnhem's books before and I was guided by a review... I will not be reading any more of his work.

Good story

The narrator's strange pronunciation of certain words kept distracting me from the story. Otherwise a good story
