Stalker by Lars Kepler

Someone is secretly filming women, then sending the clip to the police and shortly thereafter killing them. The murders remind the police of a murder that happened nine years ago, but the priest Rocky Kyrklund who was convicted is still in prison. Detective Inspector Joona Linna (from Kepler’s previous novels) is missing and assumed dead. In his absence the pregnant Margot Silverman becomes responsible for the investigation. Psychiatrist Erik Maria Bark is called in. When he hypnotizes the husband of one victim he realizes that his career may be in danger and lies to the police.

Perfect Title

Stalker is Lars Kepler’s fifth novel and what can I say, the novels just get better and better and Lars Kepler (or rather the Ahndoril’s who are behind the pseudonym) is now one of my favorite Swedish crime writers. I was hooked a few pages into the book and I was so scared that I made sure that all windows and doors were locked and I asked my husband to walk the dog… I really recommend this book, but I would lock the doors and close the curtains before you start reading.
