The Ninth Grave-Stefan Ahnhem

The Ninth Grave-Stefan Ahnhem

On the coldest day of the year, Sweden's Minister for Justice steps out of Parliament House and into a blizzard-and disappears. That same night, across the Baltic Sea, a Danish celebrity finds a stranger lurking in her snow-bound home. Two killers stalk the streets. One is a surgeon who carefully dissects his victims. The other is a brutal predator who targets women. Police in Stockholm and Copenhagen are closing in on their suspects. But as winter darkens and more people die, their investigations begin to unravel. Sometimes murder is just the beginning.

Ahnhem's story is as bleak as the depths of a Nordic winter, as gory as a charnel house, and as far removed from the concept of Scandinavian hygge comfort as can be imagined, but still it grips like a vice.
