In Falkenberg, Sweden, the mutilated body of talented young jewelry designer Linnea Blix is found in a snow-swept marina. In Hampstead Heath, London, the body of a young boy is discovered with similar wounds to Linnea’s. Buchenwald Concentration Camp, 1944. In the midst of the hell of the Holocaust, Erich Hebner will do anything to see himself as a human again. Are the two murders the work of a serial killer, and how are they connected to shocking events at Buchenwald? Emily Roy, a profiler on loan to Scotland Yard from the Canadian Royal Mounted Police, joins up with Linnea’s friend, French true-crime writer Alexis Castells, to investigate the puzzling case. They travel between Sweden and London, and then deep into the past, as a startling and terrifying connection comes to light. (From Amazon)
Ever wanted to get inside the mind of a serial killer? Well Johana Gustawsson can take you there. In the most vivid, beautiful way possible. I do have to say this book is one of the most descriptive thrillers I have ever read. I feel like I could be a serial killer after spending time reading this book. Guys it was intense, and a thrill ride that I didn’t want to end.
It is a very sensitive subject that Johana writes about, I don’t know many readers who enjoy reading about murdered boys, but there is something about the way this book is written, that makes it not impossible to read and enjoy, if that makes sense. With that being said, obviously there is going to be triggers in this book for some. My mind is still going a mile a minute regarding the ending of this book. If you read it guys, please let me know! I give this book a 4 out of 5 Stars. Thank you Orenda Books, and Anne Cater for allowing me to participate in this Blog Tour!
