The heart pounding debut from the creator of the hit Scandinavian television show The KillingIf you find one he’s already found youA psychopath is terrorizing CopenhagenHis calling card is a “chestnut man” a handmade doll made of matchsticks a. I was sooooo ready to give five Danish thrilling chilling darkest mind numbing stars to this book as a die hard fan of Danish series Forbrydelsen American version is Killing but in my opinion Danish version beats the hell of US version because of the atmosphere sensational smart darker crime thriller elements and far better casting performances I always prefer Sarah Lund over Sarah LindenBut now I m barely rounding up 35 to 4 stars just because of the impressive riveting exciting beginning The reasons to cut the points Longevity There were too many detailed long never ending descriptions slow the pace and you wanted to skip the details and try to find the real action hid in the long sentences If the author may reduce at least 100 pages and cut some extra details about all the characters background stories it could be helpful for us to get the juicy thrilling and witty parts of the story that hooked me up at the first chapters RESEMBLANCE with Forbrydelsen Thulin is between Girl in the Dragon Tattoo s Lisbeth with her technological skills high intelligence and Killing s Sarah Lund with her independent work oriented serious detailed tough manners she tries to raise her child by herself As a difference from Sarah she has a girl who forms a uick relationship with her new troubled colleague Unlike Stephen Holder thanks to US version series introduced us Joel Kinnaman now he is in every show including Hanna For All Mankind Altered Carbon or Lennart Brix Danish character Hess stronger and complex introvert hero has troubled past his new position is a test and last chance for him to prove his ability to work on a case being a part of a team He is not a drug addict or divorced like LennartStephen but his past demons and a heart wrenching tragedy he d endured justifies his changing moods and antisocial mannersA SUCCESSFUL SCRIPTWRITER ALWAYS GIVES HIMSELF AWAY I felt like I didn t read chapters of book I read 130 scenes of a screenplay Some character descriptions detailed background stories and their motives were written like character analysis It was good to imagine each chapter as fast pacing moving scenes of an action crime thriller movie It worked for me as I start to read like that and I imagined Rosamund Pike and Tom Hardy as my casting choices Sorry no American actors came to my mind I think British talents already invaded HollywoodBut I still liked the writing dark stunning captivating atmosphere gruesome stomach lurching violent murders that we used to from the other Scandinavian novels The main reason connects the murders is child abuseneglectabandonment The killer acts like a savior of those harmed wounded little childrenI wish I could see parts of Thulin and Hess come together getting rid of the hostility and disconnection weaken their performances to organize as colleagues and friends taking out their boxing gloves and settling their differences I wanted to see them work as a real team love hate relationship But they didn t team up till the end and they continue their own personal investigations they didn t share much about their findings which put them dangerous situations But I think a seuel is coming and at the next book we re gonna see connection and bounding relationship between themAs a result after omitting few pages this is still a great story with remarkable characterization and dark stunning heart throbbing agitating horrifying but also creatively dark and scary themes make this one of the good examples of the genre So if the author decides to write a seuel or adapt it to the TV I happily read and watch it I m a big fan of his previous works and I am enthusiastic and excited to read crime stories he will create in near futurebloginstagramfacebooktwitter

Soren Sveistrup is the man behind the runaway successful Danish TV series The Killing he has now turned his attention to writing his first Scandi Noir novel set in Copenhagen The Chestnut Man carries trademark elements of The Killing it is part police procedural part psychological thriller incorporating politicians whilst giving us social realism in its portrayals and insights into the lives of its diverse range of characters that inhabit the story It is dark bleak and brutal with a serial killer running rampant in the present day Naia Thulin is a detective in Homicide s Murder Suad led by Nylander feeling that her workload has barely challenged her abilities she wants and has plans to transfer to NC3 National Cyber Crime Centre She is a single mother with a daughter Le Mark Hess has been pushed out of Europol after issues and lands in the Murder Suad not wanting to be there with every intention of being reinstated in Europol as soon as possible He is partnered with Thulin who uickly judges him to be a man that will be of little use with a reputation for not being much of a detectiveThe detectives find themselves on a brutal murder scene where a 37 year old mother Laura Kjaer has been horrifically killed with her amputated hand missing and left at the scene is a chestnut man A still grieving Rosa Hartung is returning to her post as politician and Minister for Social Affairs in the government after the disappearance of her 12 year old daughter Kristine a year ago Linus Bekker confessed to and is sectioned in a psychiatric facility for her murder although his memory of the act was poor but evidence suggests the conviction is secure Rosa is plunged into fresh turmoil when fingerprints on the chestnut man at the murder scene are identified as being that of Kristine Additionally Rosa is receiving disturbing death threats As further murders occur with a similar MO of mothers with children with the signature chestnut men with Kristine s fingerprints the police struggle to find any leads whilst the serial killer runs rings around them Hess and Thulin are ordered to ignore the Hartrup connection despite the fact it seems to be critical to the investigation Sveistrup gives us compelling crime fiction with a fascinating partnership between Thulin with her eyes on a future out of the murder suad and Hess with a traumatised past with little interest initially in the case One of the highlights of the novel is the development of their characters and their relationship from such poor initial beginnings Hess becomes a man obsessed to the point of falling apart determined to get to the bottom of the heinous murders being committed None of the Murder Suad are accepting of him and the boss has lined him up as the fall guy as the pressure intensifies on the police It takes time for Thulin to see Hess as a dedicated and effective detective that challenges the perceptions of the case dogged in his determination to find the killer and willing to enter forbidden territory convinced the case is rooted in the past and that Rosa Hartung is central to it This is a crime thriller that will appeal to fans of Scandi Noir a genre defined by its darkness and harrowing murders Sveistrup has succeeded in making a brilliant chilling debut compulsive and gripping reading packed with suspense and tension and with great characterisation Many thanks to Penguin Michael Joseph for an ARC
