Description

A Best Book of the Year: Kirkus, Library Journal, New York Times Book Review

A Book of the Month Club selection An Indie Next Pick

FROM THE CREATOR OF THE HIT TELEVISION SHOW THE KILLING, "a full-throttle thriller in the tradition of classic Stieg Larsson" (A.J. Finn)--SOON TO BE A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES.

IF YOU FIND ONE, HE'S ALREADY FOUND YOU

A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.

His calling card is a "chestnut man"--a handmade doll made of matchsticks and two chestnuts--which he leaves at each bloody crime scene.

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.

And no one is safe.

Review quote

"A big, bold, spend-all-day-reading thriller.... In his debut crime novel, Søren Sveistrup instantly establishes himself as a must-read author for fans of Nordic Noir legends Jo Nesbø and Lars Kepler--and, for that matter, as a must-read for any reader who just wants a gripping thriller to sink their teeth into."--Crime by the Book
