Mystery Book Club Online - The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup

A Best Book of the Year: Kirkus, Library Journal, New York Times Book Review

A Book of the Month Club selection | An Indie Next Pick

FROM THE CREATOR OF THE HIT TELEVISION SHOW THE KILLING, “a full-throttle thriller in the tradition of classic Stieg Larsson” (A.J. Finn)—SOON TO BE A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES.

"IF YOU FIND ONE, HE’S ALREADY FOUND YOU.

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." - Amazon.com
