The Chestnut Man

The gripping debut novel from the writer of The Killing




A nail-biting crime novel from the script writer behind The Killing.

In a playground just outside Copenhagen a woman is found dead with one hand cut off.

A small chestnut figure hangs over her.

Naia Thulin and Mark Hess are sent to investigate but they soon discover another woman has been brutally murdered. This time both her hands have been cut off.

And the chestnut figure is back.

Thulin and Hess soon suspect that these murdered women are connected to the missing daughter of Rosa Hartung, the Minister for Social Affairs, and work against the clock to stop the killer from striking again.
