Stalker by Lars Kepler | Review

Lars Kepler understood the assignment! 

I love this book series so damn much! This is Book #5 in the Joona Lina series, and I 100% recommend starting from Book #1, otherwise, you will miss key story points.

As per usual, I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn’t stop reading!  Even though the book has an overwhelming number of pages, the short chapters make this book a breeze to read!

I really love the main characters of this series, especially Joona and Saga! I hope we see more of Saga in the next one! However, in this one we saw a familiar face as Erik Maria Bark is back! We got introduced to Erik during Book #1, The Hypnotist. I really loved that he was back in the story! I’m invested in these characters and will keep reading this series.

The story was a wild ride and the writing excellent! If you want a book that’s unpredictable, atmospheric, dark, compelling and twisted, this one is for you!! Highly recommend!

Thank you to Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Detective Joona Linna -- recently returned from compassionate leave -- reunites with hypnotist Erik Maria Bark in a search for a seemingly unassailable sadistic killer.

The Swedish National Crime Unit receives a video of a young woman in her home, clearly unaware that she's being watched. Soon after the tape is received, the woman's body is found horrifically mutilated. With the arrival of the next, similar video, the police understand that the killer is toying with them, warning of a new victim, knowing there's nothing they can do. Detective Margot Silverman is put in charge of the investigation, and soon asks Detective Joona Linna for help. Linna, in turn, recruits Erik Maria Bark, the hypnotist and expert in trauma, with whom Linna's worked before. Bark is leery of forcing people to give up their secrets. But this time, Bark is the one hiding things.

Years before, he had put a man away for an eerily similar crime, and now he's beginning to think that an innocent man may be behind bars--and a serial killer still on the loose. . .
