The Owl Always Hunts At Night (Holger Munch & Mia Kruger #2)
Detective Mia Krüger has been signed off work pending psychological assessment. But her boss has less regard for the rules than he should. Desperate to get Mia back in the office, Holger Munch offers her an unofficial deal.
But the usually brilliant Mia is struggling and the team are unable to close the case. Until a young hacker uncovers something that forces the team to confront the scope of the murderer’s plans and face the possibility that he may already be on the hunt for a second victim.
|This was a bleak tale and a slow burner of a read. Never the less was a finely written tale, Plenty of red herrings and false clues.
It begins with a botanist discovering the body of a young girl posed in what looks like a ritualistic killing.
Enter Holger Munch, an overweight detective; who is carrying the baggage of his divorce years previously. Also Mia Kruger, an enigmatic detective who is on suspension pending a psychological assessment.
Munch breaks the rules by enlisting Mia’s help. Is this because she does not play by the rules and this case may need this to be solved.
The writing was crisp and of a high quality. The interplay between well rounded characters excellent.
I was interested in the dynamic between Munch and Mia as this gave great insights into these to people and why they attract and repulse each other.
This is book 2 in this series and can be read as a stand a;one. But I will be looking for book 1.
