Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The latest in the spate of dark Scandinavian crime tales is created by a writing duo. Interesting you can’t see the seams at all. It flows in clear atmospheric prose as two unconnected murdered women are investigated. This is East Jutland, small town, intricate stuff. Chasing from isolated summer houses in stunning countryside we are hurled along to try and get some answers before another woman is killed. It starts a series so we are left with an interesting cliff hanger!

If you like Sander Jakobsen you might also like to read books by Jo Nesbo, Camilla Lackberg and David Hewson.

Synopsis

The Preacher by Sander Jakobsen

Thorkild Christensen stares down at his murdered wife, Karen, and realises he knows almost nothing about her. How did she fill her days? Where did she disappear to every Thursday? Lead investigator Detective Thea Krogh is determined to find out. And then a second woman is shot dead. There is seemingly nothing to link the two victims, and the police move on, desperate for a lead. But someone out there has a deadly secret. And as events begin to play out - masterminded by a strange and bewitching figure - all of their worlds are about to come crashing down ...An ingenious thriller from an exciting new Danish talent. Will you guess the secret to unlock the killer twist?

Reviews

Watch out for the new author duo writing under the pseudonym Sander Jakobsen. I've just read their debut crime novel The Preacher ... It's a thrilling, skilful crime novel with great characters and a great atmosphere - Sara Blaedel

Best of the Latest Releases: The Preacher explores love and guilt in Scandinavian small-town society - Radio Times (Nordic Noir)

A deceptively clever thriller that bears thinking about ... The Preacher holds its own among the Scandi-crime competing for our attention, and is, I think, ahead of the pack when it comes to the quality of the prose and the subtlety of the themes - Killing Time blog
