Cover Text'A full-throttle thriller in the tradition of classic Stieg Larsson, drenched in atmosphere and charged with adrenaline. I loved this book' A. J. Finn, author of The Woman In The Window
THE DEBUT NOVEL FROM THE CREATOR AND WRITER OF HIT TV SHOW THE KILLING
As the leaves fall, he's coming for you. . .
One October morning in a quiet suburb, the police make a terrible discovery.
A young woman is found brutally murdered with one of her hands missing.
Above her hangs a small doll made of chestnuts.
Examining the doll, Forensics are shocked to find a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, kidnapped and murdered a year ago.
Can a new killer be the key to an old crime?
And will his spree be over when winter arrives - or is he only just getting started?
