Publisher's Summary

#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.

Critic Reviews

"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

Horrific

The main character is great. Has been through several books. But the authors need to quit. The story is so vile and horrific that they shouldn’t continue.

Detail ad nauseam

I couldn’t get through this book. It should easily been half as long. The narrator’s voice for all female characters was exactly the same. He even managed to make a professional architect sound like a blubbering mess with the voice of a woman in her 70’s.

Great book

This was quite a thrilling book. I had a hard time turning it off at the end of every day. An unusual book with an excellent ending.

Good even though it was gory!

I guessed wrong. I love that. Lots of strings that come together nicely at the end. Loved it.

Overall pretty good

I’d give this 4 1/2 stars if that option were available. Overall, a good story and on par with the other books in the series. Yes, Joona Linna is a little bit too much of a “super human” and the narrator is not my favorite (but you get used to him), but the story was entertaining and I actually was surprised by the ending. Some pretty disturbing/violent parts but that’s to be expected in this type of book in my opinion.

B+

Definitely not the best book of the series but it was sufficiently entertaining and held my attention the whole way through. Id give it a B+ rating.
