I'm Travelling Alone by Samuel Bjork
  

Lovereading view...

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

Synopsis

I'm Travelling Alone by Samuel Bjork

When the body of a young girl is found hanging from a tree, the only clue the police have is an airline tag around her neck. It reads 'I'm travelling alone'. In response, police investigator Holger Munch is immediately charged with assembling a special homicide unit. But to complete the team, he must track down his former partner, Mia Kruger - a brilliant but troubled detective - who has retreated to a solitary island with plans to kill herself. Reviewing the file, Mia finds something new - a thin line carved into the dead girl's fingernail: the number 1. 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 stop this murderer from becoming a serial killer.

'Samuel Bjork's formidable I'm Travelling Alone is despatched with real elan ... Mia's confrontation with both her own demons and a very human one is mesmerising fare' Independent

'A compelling novel, with plenty of intrigue and some splendid action sequences' Guardian
