This thriller was AMAZING!
Right from the beginning, the story drew me in. The characters were interesting and had backgrounds that piqued my curiosity. The author did a great job of offering up tiny pieces of their stories at a time, building up the person into something you liked or disliked, revealing aspects of their pasts you never saw coming. The relationships developed were really enjoyable to me.
The killer in this novel was definitely a very interesting murderer. I was constantly wondering who it could be, why they were doing what they were doing, and how they picked their targets. I had guessed about halfway through who I thought it could be, but I was so wrong! It never occurred to me that it could be the person it was! I really enjoyed that the author kept me constantly guessing (wrong) right until the last 50 pages or so!
This story took me for a ride! I abandoned the buddy read schedule and had to devour the last 150 pages in an afternoon, because I just couldn’t put it down! Everything came together in the end, and I wasn’t left with too many questions. There was definitely some rather descriptive violence in this novel, but it never seemed excessive to me, merely fitting with the tone overall.
I will definitely be looking forward to more books by Søren Sveistrup, AND checking out the show he was a part of?
