The Fire Witness

by Lars Kepler

Part of the Joona Linna Series

Crime / Mystery Thriller and Suspense

LoveReading View on The Fire Witness

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

The third case for controversial Swedish cop Joona Linna, by husband and wife Alexander and Alexandra Ahndoril writing as Lars Kepler. The books, which began with The Hypnosis and The Nightmare have all become international bestsellers and this comes as no surprise as they combine the consistently bleak insights of most Scandinavian crime fiction with a compelling character who uses controversial methods in his investigations, never fears to get his hands dirty and whose determination is unceasing. A disturbing crime in a home for troubled girls and the disappearance of the main suspect is only the beginning of a grisly and troubling tale that grows in intensity with every chapter. Strong stuff indeed but you can't keep your eyes away. The Kepler books will linger in your memory for ages, both an encomium and a warning!

The Fire Witness Synopsis

ONE GIRL IS DEAD

At a home for troubled girls, a young girl has been brutally murdered during the night. Her body is found arranged in bed with her hands covering her eyes.

ONE GIRL IS MISSING

Vicky Bennet is the only girl unaccounted for. When a bloody hammer is discovered under her pillow, it appears that she was more than just a witness to the killing.

ONE GIRL CLAIMS TO HAVE SEEN IT ALL

Detective Inspector Joona Linna is called in to piece the evidence together. But the case quickly descends into darker, more violent territory, leading him finally to a shocking confrontation with the past.
