LoveReading View on I'm Travelling Alone

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Already a bestseller in over 30 countries, this stunning Norwegian debut finally appears in English. Such was its impact elsewhere that it will now be the subject of a forthcoming ITV series. When a young girl is found hanging from a tree with a note around her neck, evidence of a serial killer is, sadly, incontrovertible. Veteran investigator Holger Munch is determined to solve the case but cannot do so without the assistance of the brilliant Mia Kruger, his depressive ex-partner who is on her own countdown to suicide. The odd pair are memorable cops sometimes reminiscent of the duo in 'The Bridge' and their interactions and respective personalities are as gripping as the complex, splendidly engineered plot which will keep you up all night until its multiple strands are cleverly pulled together. Bleak and hypnotic, so much more than your average Scandi crime book. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

I'm Travelling Alone Synopsis

When a six year old girl is found dead, hanging from a tree, the only clue the Oslo Police have to work with is an airline tag around her neck. It reads 'I'm travelling alone'. Holger Munch, veteran police investigator, is immediately charged with re-assembling his homicide unit. But to complete the team, he must convince his erstwhile partner, Mia Kruger - a brilliant but troubled investigator - to return from the solitary island where she has retreated with plans to take her own life. Reviewing the evidence, Mia identifies something no one else has noticed - a thin line carved into the dead girl's fingernail: the number 1. Instinctively, she knows that this is only the beginning. To save other children from the same fate, she must find a way to cast aside her own demons and confront the most terrifying, cold-hearted serial killer of her career...
