A good thriller with a panting rhythm.The chapters are very short and the writing is dynamic, perfectly rendering the icy atmosphere in which the characters evolve.The story is quite original, however the end leaves some shadowsA good reading time

I was beyond excited when I won this in a giveaway So, thank you and Knopf Publishing.This book was so creepy good I mean so fantastically disturbing, spine chilling, hair raising good I was white knuckling the book the whole time This is the 4th in the series, but at no time did I feel lost or confused As soon as I was finished, I started looking to see where I could buy, even though I m on a book buying band, the others in the series And that ending Oh My Goodness WTH That was the BEST of all [...]
Wow Now that book was intense I literally could not put it down I read all 496 pages in two days this one would make a great movie I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next, how were all the disappearances connected, how were people seeing this maniac out and about while he was locked up in the most secure facility in Sweden, were the authorities going to find the victims, where had the boy been kept all these years, was his sister still alive as well Lots of mysteries in the stor [...]

The 4th book in the Police Inspector Joona Linna series by the excellent writers known as Lars Kepler.Having read and enjoyed the previous three books in this series I had no hesitation in reading this one and I loved it.Jurek Walter is Sweden s most prolific serial killer, now serving a life sentence in solitary confinement and even now is still considered extremely dangerous by psychiatric staff One of his victims Mikael knows him as the sandman and seven years ago, he was taken from his bed a [...]
Que policial t o bom A dupla Lars Kepler excedeu se neste livro e construiu uma hist ria cheia de suspense e a o ao mesmo tempo timo enredo e, para quem j segue a s rie, com um aprofundamento na vida pessoal de alguns protagonistas.O melhor dos quatro livros Conselho comecem a ler com tempo, porque uma vez que comecem, n o v o querer mais larga lo
Meni osobno ova je najbolja do sada itala sam ju brzinom svjetlosti Odli na a skoro sam odustala od Keplera nakon Paganinijevog ugovora jer mi se nije ba svi ao Sad u se vratiti tre em dijelu Svjedok vatre.
SUBLIEM Meer woorden zijn er niet nodig om dit boek te beschrijven Echt van genoten
Tot de laatste pagina blijf je bijna op het puntje van je stoel zitten om de ontknoping te beleven Het eindestuk kent namelijk een flinke stijging van de spanning Het slot is erg verrassend en laat een goede ingang voor het vijfde deel achter Erg goed Het boek heeft wel iets weg van de zinderende thriller Silence of the Lambs , maar zeker ook van het verhaal van De Souffleur Beide staan voor mij hoog op de ranking, vandaar dat ik dit boek ook erg goed vond Koop dat kaartje voor die haast hersen [...]
T o bom Talvez o melhor de todos E agora Este ltimo par grafo deixa outra vez tudo em aberto Lol
The Sandman kept me up reading into the night I definitely meant to go to bed at a reasonable time last night, but I couldn t put this book down This was my first experience with the Joona Linna series by Lars Kepler this is the third book in the series, and it s very easy to get invested quickly I wasn t confused, and I think this book can work very well as a standalone novel However, since I loved it, I ordered the first 3 books in the series after I finished this one I am not always great at [...]
Kepler has waited until the fourth book to pen what many Joona Linna fans have long waited for a case that flashes back into his past Linna stumbled across Jurek Walter one night, standing over a recently opened grave and staring down at a woman All this is summarised in THE FIRE WITNESS and its closing chapters When one of Walter s supposed victim s is found wandering along a train track, the hopes that others can be found raises hope With Walter incarcerated in a psychiatric prison, Linna must [...]
Book 3 hinted where this one was going.I really don t know how those reading them in real time have coped waiting between publication dates.I was able to just drive in and immerse myself into the world of Joona Linna again, this is a Sweden we haven t really met since we lost the writing of Stieg Larsson Lars Kepler is a combined effort of two authors and their powers are brilliantly honed in this their fourth published novel The Sandman.In Jurek Walter we have a calculating villian worthy of a [...]
Le doy un 4.5Este libro fue incre ble, creo que esa es la nica que puedo decir sobre este libro, porque fue totalmente incre ble.Mikael Kohler Frost junto a su hermana Felicia, han desparecido por muchos a os, se culpo a Jurke Walter por varios homicidios, pero cuando encuentran a Mikael en unas v as del tren, Joona y su equipo retoman el caso.Desde el inicio del libro hasta el final todo es incre ble, adem s de que tiene un buen pedazo de intriga, llama la atenci n todo lo que pasa al rededor d [...]

Para come ar tenho de admitir o bvio, sou f absoluta desta dupla de autores suecos, com sabor portugu s Desde o 1 livro que me encantei com a argucia e intelig ncia do inspector Joona Linna e de livro para livro, s melhoram sendo este volume verdadeiramente viciante e de leitura compulsiva Desde o Hipnotista at ao Homem de Areia mant m se uma coer ncia extraordin ria na constru o das hist rias, a narrativa das mesmas, os detalhes na forma como o nosso inspector chega s suas conclus es e principa [...]
I was looking forward to this one for about a year, the problem with these books is, you have to hope that they will be translated fairly quickly So, when I managed to get my little mits on it at long last this week, I could not wait to get reading, especially since there was a teaser at the end of the last one about what was to come I stayed up really late two nights ago, as it got to that stage where you need to know what happens next It was gripping, edge of the bed stuff I was reading it in [...]
N o tenho medo de monstros Mas tenho ju zo suficiente para ter medo do Jurek Walter Agora pessoal Jurek Walker custou a Joona Linna aquilo que ele mais amava na vida Detido h 13 anos em regime psiqui trico, Jurek n o pode estar de forma alguma sozinho com um membro do pessoal, est interdito de ir ao jardim e n o pode receber visitas , muito resumidamente, o pior assassino em s rie de toda a hist ria sueca E por isso mesmo que quando uma das suas v timas, que se julgava morta h muitos anos, reapa [...]
I am finally beginning to warm up toward this series By now I am familiar with the repeating characters, particularly detective inspector Joona Linna Since I ve learned about the tragedy in his life, I ve started to root for him This makes the story personal and makes me far invested in events than I have been before.Joona Linna has attachment issues This stems from the time when he sent his wife and daughter away, pretending they died in a car accident, to save them from a brutal serial kille [...]
Na minha opini o este , at agora, o melhor volume da s rie O suspense muito bem gerido, a narrativa r pida, a hist ria cheia de desenvolvimentos e reviravoltas, mas sempre bem constru da e coerente E, literalmente, termina na ltima linha deixando tudo em aberto.
Que final Brutal Para mim este e A Vidente s o os melhores livros da dupla Mas h qualquer coisa que falta e n o me faz dar a pontua o m xima N o me prende a 100%.Recomendo
Opini o brevemente
