By Camilla Läckberg & Henrik Fexeus

Intense suspense by the new author duo – the first installment in a nail biting series.

When a woman is found dead in a box that has been penetrated with swords the police is puzzled: is it a magic trick gone wrong or an extremely brutal murder? Mina Dabiri is police inspector at the Stockholm police and takes help from Vincent Walder, mentalist and expert in body language and magic.

They make connections with previous cases, and realize that they are hunting a reckless serial killer who has to be stopped before there are more victims. But Mina’s and Vincent’s awkward personalities are making it difficult. Both are carrying dark secrets. Their past seems to be connected with what’s happening and the pace is increasing more and more. They have to be one step ahead of the murderer. Get to know the insanity in order to put an end to it.
