This was an exceptional read. Joona Linna of the National Crime Squad has thought he has solved a case when Jurek Walter is given a life sentence for serial murder. Things change when one of his victims surfaces alive several years later and others are murdered , all bearing the hallmarks of Jurek Walter. This is impossible as he is locked in a secure unit. But Joona has always thought Jurek has an accomplice. Is he right? What follows is a tale that has you turning the pages eager to know if Joona can bring closure and tie up the loose ends that have been troubling him for years. This is a book that can be read as a stand alone, but to really enjoy it at it’s best it is best to start at the beginning. The Hypnotist being the first in the series. A well deserved 5 stars.
