TW: Animal Cruelty

Book #8 in the Joona Lina series! I’ve officially read the whole series!

This is one of my favorite Nordic Noir series! I love the Jo Nesbo Harry Hole series but I’ve just fallen in love with Joona and his journey.

As usual, this book was extremely atmospheric! I think it’s my favorite part of these novels. It’s just exceptional writing and it truly makes me feel like I’m in the story.

However, this one didn’t capture my attention as much in the beginning. It took me a while to get into it, which is truly unheard of with this series! It was a really great high-paced, action-packed unpredictable novel – it just isn’t my favorite in the series.

There was a small twist at the beginning that got me really into it though, and the twists just kept on coming!

There wasn’t a whole lot of character development in this one, it was mostly revolving around the story. We did get a glimpse of Saga and I'm really excited to see how Saga’s doing in the next book! Saga and Joona are definitely my favorite characters, and I truly can’t wait to see how this series plays out! I’m bummed I have to wait so long for a new one now.


Seventeen-year-old Jenny is abducted in broad daylight and taken to a dilapidated, isolated house where she is chained and caged along with several other girls. Their captor is unpredictable, and as wily as he is cruel: he foils every one of their desperate attempts to escape . . . and once caught, they rarely survive their punishment.

Five years later, Jenny is found dead in a public park, and the police are scrambling to find a lead among the scant evidence. But Detective Joona Linna realizes that this murder has an eerie connection to a death that was declared a suicide years before. When Mia, a seventeen-year-old orphan, goes missing, it becomes clear to Joona that they are dealing with a serial killer--whose murderous rampage has just begun.

As the police close in on the killer, Mia and her fellow captives are plunged into ever greater danger, and Joona finds himself in a seemingly impossible race against time to save their young lives.
