Book Description

13 Feb 2014

Detective Inspector for homicide, Sarah Lund, is contacted by old flame Mathias Borch from National Intelligence. Borch fears that what first appeared to be a random killing at the docks is the beginning of an assassination attempt on Prime Minister Troels Hartmann. The murder draws attention towards the shipping and oil giant, Zeeland, run by billionaire Robert Zeuthen.

When Zeuthen's 9-year-old daughter, Emilie, is kidnapped the investigation takes on a different dimension as it soon becomes clear that her disappearance is linked to the murder of a young girl in Jutland some years earlier.

Hartmann is in the middle of an election campaign, made all the more turbulent because of the mounting financial crisis. He needs Zeeland's backing.

Lund needs to make sense of the clues left by Emilie's perpetrator before it's too late.

And can she finally face the demons that have long haunted her?

Praise for David Hewson

From the Back Cover

Detective Inspector for homicide, Sarah Lund, is contacted by old flame Mathias Borch from National Intelligence. Borch fears that what first appeared to be a random killing at the docks is linked to an assassination attempt on Prime Minister Troels Hartmann. The murder draws attention towards the shipping giant, Zeeland, run by billionaire Robert Zeuthen.

When Zeuthen's nine-year-old daughter Emilie is kidnapped, the investigation takes on a darker dimension. It soon becomes clear that her disappearance is linked to the murder of a young girl in Jutland some years earlier.

Hartmann is in the middle of an election campaign, made all the more turbulent by the mounting financial crisis. He needs Zeeland's backing.

Lund needs to make sense of the clues left by Emilie's abductor before it's too late. Can she save Emilia's life? And can she finally face the demons that have long haunted her?

Praise for The Killing

'Turns TV gold into literary gold' Telegraph

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

'An excellent stand-alone novel - but perhaps Hewson's greatest achievement is that it's compelling reading' Observer

4.0 out of 5 stars Hewson Makes a Killing! 4 April 2014
By Pigwin
Format:Hardcover
When I read that David Hewson had written a novel based on the Danish TV series, The Killing, and despite Hewson being an established and respected writer of detective crime fiction (set in Italy) I was still reluctant to purchase the book. However, thanks to excellent reviews in the media and recommendations from book stores I decided to invest. It is unusual for a book to be based on a TV series but Hewson has risen to the challenge with remarkable skill and having thoroughly enjoyed both The Killing 1 and 2 I had no hesitation in buying Hewson's adaption of the third and final part of the Danish series.

This novel is once again a tour de force for David Hewson and while the atmosphere of the series is masterfully reproduced and the plot is almost identical, Hewson himself has said that the adaptations are works of fiction in their own right and consequently, The Killing 3 is a fascinating story and a stand alone novel. If you have seen The Killing 3 on the television then you can expect quite a few surprises and a completely different ending.

To paraphrase the plot, Sarah Lund is contacted by her ex-lover, Mathias Borch, now working with National Intelligence who fears that what was first considered a random killing on the docks could quite well turn out to be the precursor of an assassination attempt on the Prime minister, Troels Hartmann. A shipping and oil company, Zeeland , owned by billionaire Robert Zeuthen becomes the focus of attention.

When Zeuthen's 9 year-old daughter is kidnapped the investigation takes on a new complexion as it soon becomes clear that her abduction is linked to the murder of a young girl in Jutland some years earlier.

I enjoyed reading The Killing 3 however the author is in a rut, It follows far too predictable a pattern. Apart from a change of some names it labours on and the ending is easy to guess

4.0 out of 5 stars The Killing 3 14 Jun 2014
By Monty
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sara Lund as her dysfunctional best with the usual political intrigue surrounding the story. I had watched the televised version of this book and it pre-warned me of the storyline. The book is well written and is a good sequel to the previous two versions although it looks like David Hewson will have to find another heroine to replace Lund given the finale of this one. If you like the Scandinavian stories you will like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 9 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another fantastic read from David Hewson. I have read all three Killing books and they are all equally brilliant.

The plots twist and turn so much I am always left quite breathless until the very end.

I just love Sarah Lund, who is flawed, complicated but above all a brilliant detective. I really like her instinct and logic applied to the case In hand and I really really hope there is a book 4. Borsch and Brix are just brilliant characters and I would also like to see how the potentially very good Juncker progresses.

Thumping good read and highly recommended.
