The Chestnut Man

Mystery/thrillers are not my usual cup of tea, but I generally enjoy them. The Chestnut Man by Soren Sveistrup was a great one and a perfect chilling summer read. While it was long, I couldn’t stop reading. Amazon describes it perfectly and succinctly: “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. To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man’s gruesome clues.” It’s really good, though a little gorey.
