The book comes alive in the second half, though, so you do well if you persist to this point. It becomes quite exciting and interesting and really has the reader invested. The pace, therefore, is much livelier than in the first half.
The story components are a bit unlikely, but nothing is really silly either.
In short, this ended up being a good read following a very slow start. 7/10
It took me awhile to fully integrate all of the characters in the A-Unit, the FBI, the serial killer and his victims. Once, I understood the team method of the A-unit, I was on my way. As the bodies mount, the team gets to work, slowly, with not much evidence. This serial killer leaves nothing behind but the victim and the atrocities he committed. As the clues advance, the A-Unit, led by DS Hultin and his team, Hjelm, Chavez, Holm, Nyberg move on. A trip to New York City to look at the evidence compiled by the FBI leads to discoveries, and the team back home finds more evidence. The pace picks up considerably, and some of the action is a little out there.
I have not read the first book in this series, and many of the crimes solved in the first novel are referenced, however, this can be a stand alone novel . The relationships of the A-Unit are cohesive with some splits that are coming together. This novel is a good stepping ground for future books. After all, 'what goes around, comes around'!

Their task this time is to find the American serial killer, nicknamed the Kentucky Killer. This is a particularly unpleasant murderer, who uses pincers which enable his victims to whisper their secrets, but not scream under torture. Several problems arise in the course of apprehending the killer, not least being the fact that evidence suggests he died in a car crash fifteen years previously. However, the recently committed killing of a Swedish literary critic would indicate that the Kentucky Killer is alive and well, having moved from America to Sweden to carry out more dastardly crimes.
The task of finding the murderer before he continues his killing spree is a complex one. The plot twists and turns in many interesting directions, which made me want to keep reading to find the answers. Although I found the last half of the book to be enthralling and almost impossible to put down, I was disappointed with the opening section - apart from the first chapter - which seemed to drag and not hold my interest. I also found that the text did not always flow smoothly, possibly due to the translation. However, I shall certainly read more books by Arne Dahl and would recommend them to those who enjoy gritty, Scandinavian crime writing.
