A dark, thrilling short story collection about twisted minds and vengeful hearts from a true master of suspense
Jo Nesbø is the consummate mystery writer, and his talent for hair-raising suspense and shocking twists are on full display in this inventive and harrowing collection of stories. A detective with a nose for jealousy is on the trail of a man suspected of murdering his twin; a woman finally overcomes her intimacy issues through a dark encounter with her Peeping Tom neighbor; a fugitive on the run in a remote corner of Norway is lured by a friendly local to what seems to be a wedding ceremony–only to find a much more macabre event. Contained in this collection are stories of insatiable avarice, unscrupulous lovers, and heartrending fate. With Nesbø’s gift for outstanding atmosphere and complex characters, this is a veritable crime lover’s delight.
