Soren Sveistrup is the man behind the runaway successful Danish TV series The Killing he has now turned his attention to writing his first Scandi Noir novel set in Copenhagen The Chestnut Man carries trademark elements of The Killing it is part police procedural part psychological thriller incorporating politicians whilst giving us social realism in its portrayals and insights into the lives of its diverse range of characters that inhabit the story It is dark bleak and brutal with a serial killer running rampant in the present day Naia Thulin is a detective in Homicide s Murder Suad led by Nylander feeling that her workload has barely challenged her abilities she wants and has plans to transfer to NC3 National Cyber Crime Centre She is a single mother with a daughter Le Mark Hess has been pushed out of Europol after issues and lands in the Murder Suad not wanting to be there with every intention of being reinstated in Europol as soon as possible He is partnered with Thulin who uickly judges him to be a man that will be of little use with a reputation for not being much of a detectiveThe detectives find themselves on a brutal murder scene where a 37 year old mother Laura Kjaer has been horrifically killed with her amputated hand missing and left at the scene is a chestnut man A still grieving Rosa Hartung is returning to her post as politician and Minister for Social Affairs in the government after the disappearance of her 12 year old daughter Kristine a year ago Linus Bekker confessed to and is sectioned in a psychiatric facility for her murder although his memory of the act was poor but evidence suggests the conviction is secure Rosa is plunged into fresh turmoil when fingerprints on the chestnut man at the murder scene are identified as being that of Kristine Additionally Rosa is receiving disturbing death threats As further murders occur with a similar MO of mothers with children with the signature chestnut men with Kristine s fingerprints the police struggle to find any leads whilst the serial killer runs rings around them Hess and Thulin are ordered to ignore the Hartrup connection despite the fact it seems to be critical to the investigation Sveistrup gives us compelling crime fiction with a fascinating partnership between Thulin with her eyes on a future out of the murder suad and Hess with a traumatised past with little interest initially in the case One of the highlights of the novel is the development of their characters and their relationship from such poor initial beginnings Hess becomes a man obsessed to the point of falling apart determined to get to the bottom of the heinous murders being committed None of the Murder Suad are accepting of him and the boss has lined him up as the fall guy as the pressure intensifies on the police It takes time for Thulin to see Hess as a dedicated and effective detective that challenges the perceptions of the case dogged in his determination to find the killer and willing to enter forbidden territory convinced the case is rooted in the past and that Rosa Hartung is central to it This is a crime thriller that will appeal to fans of Scandi Noir a genre defined by its darkness and harrowing murders Sveistrup has succeeded in making a brilliant chilling debut compulsive and gripping reading packed with suspense and tension and with great characterisation Many thanks to Penguin Michael Joseph for an ARC
