The Killing 2 Synopsis

It is two years since the notorious Nanna Birk Larsen case. Two years since Detective Sarah Lund left Copenhagen in disgrace for a remote outpost in northern Denmark. When the body of a female lawyer is found in macabre circumstances in a military graveyard, there are elements of the crime scene that take Head of Homicide, Lennart Brix, back to an occupied wartime Denmark -- a time its countrymen would wish to forget. Brix knows that Lund is the one person he can rely on to discover the truth. Reluctantly she returns to Copenhagen and becomes intrigued with the facts surrounding the case. As more bodies are found, Lund comes to see a pattern and she realises that the identity of the killer will be known once the truth behind a more recent wartime mission is finally revealed ...

The Killing 2 Press Reviews

'As gripping as the TV series. It will keep you pinned to very last page'
Jens Lapidus

'David Hewson has achieved the seemingly impossible ... just as gripping as the television serial ... this book is worth reading'
The Literary Review

'A novel in the hugely experienced hands of David Hewson that defies expectation. Hewson's style is tight, lean, almost like a film script'
Express

'Clear, clipped prose is beautifully up to the task, as is his forensic attention to the original's details ... And the ending leaves a very different, but no less thought-provoking taste'
Mirror

'David Hewson should be commended for writing such a page-turner of a book ... The Killing has enough twists and turns to satisfy not only any avid follower of the series but also readers that are coming to it first time around'
