A KILLER WITH A MESSAGE.

Two men are dead. Both had been bullies at school. A single clue has been found at the scene: a class photo, with two faces neatly crossed out.

A DETECTIVE WHO CAN’T LET GO.

Fabian Risk is among the faces in the photograph. He’s also the lead detective on the case. He thought he’d left his schooldays behind. Now his classmates are dying for the sins of their childhood. . . .

CAN YOU EVER HIDE FROM JUSTICE?

The first book in an internationally bestselling, award-winning series, Stefan Ahnhem's Victim Without a Face is a chilling novel about the ultimate revenge.



Baker
& Taylor

" Two gruesome murders have shocked the Swedish town of Helsingborg. The first victim, a thug who liked using his fists, died with his hands sawn off. His sidekick, a fan of steel-capped boots, was crushed to death feet-first. Both men were bullies in the same class at school. Is someone serving justice after thirty years? The killer leaves no trace behind. But for lead investigator Fabian Risk, the lack of forensic evidence is not the only problem. He too was a student in that class--which makes him both a potential victim and a potential suspect... Full of unremitting suspense and unexpected twists, Stefan Ahnhem's Victim Without a Face is a sensational thriller from a superb debut storyteller. "--
Fabian Risk's investigation into the gruesome deaths of two men is marred by minimal evidence and his own links to the victims.

LONG and disappointing. This book needs editing, as much of it is slow or repetitive - how many times can the author end a chapter with one of the cops saying or thinking "we don't know what to do next"??? There are loose threads that are never tied up (two examples: Risk's maybe-lover and his former employment in Copenhagen), descriptions of scenery or interiors that don't make sense or aren't illuminating, and the main character is boring and predictable.
If this is the first in a series of Fabian Risk novels, count me out for the rest.
