Summary: A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.
His calling card is a “chestnut man”—a handmade doll made of matchsticks and two chestnuts—which he leaves at each bloody crime scene.
Examining the dolls, forensics makes a shocking discovery—a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, a government minister’s daughter who had been kidnapped and murdered a year ago.
A tragic coincidence—or something more twisted?
To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man’s gruesome clues.
Because it’s clear that the madman is on a mission that is far from over.
And no one is safe.
Review: Another really good thriller. I have been reading a lot of good ones lately. October is the perfect month fo this! Anyway, this book was very well written. It’s a bit long, but I couldn’t put it down. I loved the character development as well.
I think my favorite part of this book is that I could not figure out who the killer was until it was revealed. I love a good, suspenseful novel that keeps me guessing. It makes me even more eager to continue reading. If I figure out the killer too early, I tend to get bored with the book.
Definitely recommend if you need a thriller to read this month.
