|Author:||Lars Kepler; Laura A. Wideburg (Translator)|
|Series:||Joona Linna Ser.|
'A high-octane, taut thriller... what sets The Nightmare apart from its rivals is the way it has been translated: a pacy, present-tense unravelling of the action that ramps up the sense of peril' Marie Claire 'One of the most exciting Swedish crime novels of recent years...It doesn't get much better than this.' Goteborgsposten 'Once again the authors have succeeded in making themselves stand out in this torrent of Swedish crime novels.' Helsingborgs Dagblad
