Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
#1 INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER • Detective Joona Linna is on the trail of a kidnapper who targets teenage girls and makes their worst nightmares a reality.
"Dark, disturbing, and chillingly relentless. Picture Hannibal Lecter sitting down to channel Stieg Larsson and then dial it way, way up!" —Brad Thor, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Black Ice
Sixteen-year-old Jenny Lind is kidnapped in broad daylight on her way home from school and thrown into the back of a truck. She’s taken to a dilapidated house, where she and other girls face horrors far beyond their worst nightmares. Though they’re desperate to escape, their captor foils everyone of their attempts.
Five years later, Jenny’s body is found hanging in a playground, strung up with a winch on a rainy night. As the police are scrambling to find a lead in the scant evidence, Detective Joona Linna recognizes an eerie connection between Jenny’s murder and a death declared a suicide years before. And when another teenage girl goes missing, it becomes clear to Joona that they’re dealing with a serial killer—and his murderous rampage may have just begun.

"Dark, disturbing, and chillingly relentless. Picture Hannibal Lecter sitting down to channel Stieg Larsson and then dial it way, way up!"
—Brad Thor, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Black Ice
“Chilling, nerve-shredding, clever, and impossibly dark. Lars Kepler has that rare ability to take you to the very edge, and hold you there until the final page.”
—Chris Whitaker, New York Times best-selling author of We Begin at the End
“As dark and chilling as a Swedish winter, Lars Kepler’s The Mirror Man is a riveting read. Joona Linna finds himself up against his most dangerous adversary yet—a kidnapper of girls whose cruelty throws back a reflection of the deepest kind of human evil. Those who love their Scandinavian crime fiction intense, twisty, and psychologically terrifying will be unable to put this one down.”
—Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times #1 internationally best-selling author of the Orphan X series
"Stellar.... The ability of Kepler (the pen name of Alexander and Alexandra Ahndoril) to ratchet up the tension en route to a stunning reveal and an eminently fair solution is remarkable. This merits comparisons with the best of Thomas Harris." —Publishers Weekly (starred)
"A bar-raising entry in a series that unfailingly blends streamlined plotting, smart psychological suspense, and explosive conclusions with gritty portrayals of human evil." —Booklist
