"Kepler provides a master class in noir." The Boston Globe
A drowned young woman is discovered on an abandoned pleasure boat drifting by the Stockholm archipelago — strangely, her clothes are dry. The next day in Stockholm, a man turns up dead, hanging from a lamp hook inside his completely bare apartment — but how could he have hung himself with no furniture to climb upon? As Detective Inspector Joona Linna begins to piece together the two mysteries, he discovers that they are a mere prelude to a dizzying and dangerous course of events. From the internationally bestselling author of The Hypnotist comes The Nightmare, another spellbinding tale of Nordic crime.
“Action-oriented, inventive, with over-the-top plots and larger-than-life heroes and criminals….Even stronger [than The Hypnotist].” Los Angeles Times Magazine
