Welcome to Kepler’s Nightmare!

If you are traveling and happen to be stuck in an airport with never-ending flight delays announced, or if you finally make it on board and “look forward” to several hours being cramped in a tiny seat, we have found a solution on how to make those hours run faster, and faster, and faster.

Stieg Larsson, Camilla Lackberg, Jens Lapidus, you probably heard of them already. But did you know that there is a new kid in town, and this kid rocks!

The Nightmare is the second book by a Swedish literary couple, Alexander Ahndoril and Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril, who write under the pseudonym Lars Kepler. It is an absolutely unputdownable thriller in the best traditions of Robert Ludlum and John Sandford.

Follow Joona Linna, a likable detective with a sense for clues that are out of the ordinary and an ability to connect dots that at first don’t seem to connect, in his adventures in hunting down a ruthless killer. Together with his sidekick, the young secret service agent Saga Bauer (who shoots like a world-class sniper), they also try to bring to justice powerful men involved in illegal arms deals.

This is not a book for the faint-hearted. It involves murder, international intrigue, kidnapping, torture, weapons smuggling – a true Nightmare that creeps under your skin.

Also, don’t miss Kepler’s first thriller – The Hypnotist.

Rating: 5/5
