Lars Kepler is a pseudonym for a literary couple who live and write in Sweden. Their debut novel, THE HYPNOTIST, was one of Time magazine’s Top 10 Fiction Books for 2011 and one of The Wall Street Journal’s Top 10 Mysteries of 2011.
On a summer night, police recover the body of a young woman from an abandoned boat. The next day, a man turns up dead, hanging from a lamp hook. Detective Inspector Joona Linna begins to piece the two mysteries together, but the logistics are a mere prelude to a dizzying and dangerous course of events.
