The Chestnut Man : A Novel
528 pages | Paperback
From Søren Sveistrup, creator of the hit television show, The Killing—a stylish and atmospheric thriller that follows the race to find a serial killer terrorizing Copenhagen.
IF YOU FIND ONE, HE’S ALREADY FOUND YOU.
A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.
His calling card is a “chestnut man”—a handmade doll made of matchsticks and two chestnuts—which he leaves at each bloody crime scene.
Examining the dolls, forensics makes a shocking discovery—a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, a government minister’s daughter who had been kidnapped and murdered a year ago.
A tragic coincidence—or something more twisted?
To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man’s gruesome clues.
Because it’s clear that the madman is on a mission that is far from over.
And no one is safe.
