1st Printing. Signed. 505 pages. Published in 2011. The authors' breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The Signed First British Edition. The first appearance of the title in the United Kingdom and in English. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition. Published in a small and limited first print as hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. "Signed By The Author" sticker pasted in front. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Lars Kepler's "Hypnotisoren" in a felicitous English translation by Ann Long. "In the frigid clime of Tumba, Sweden, a gruesome triple homicide attracts the interest of Detective Inspector Joona Linna, who demands to investigate the murders. The killer is still at large, and there's only one surviving witness, the boy whose family was killed before his eyes. Whoever committed the crimes wanted this boy to die: He suffered more than one hundred knife wounds and lapsed into a state of shock. Desperate for information, Linna sees only one option: Hypnotism. He enlists Dr. Erik Maria Bark to mesmerize the boy, hoping to discover the killer through his eyes. It's the sort of work that Bark has sworn he would never do again, ethically dubious and psychically scarring. When he breaks his promise and hypnotizes the victim, a long and terrifying chain of events begins to unfurl. This adrenaline-drenched thriller is spellbinding from its very first page" (Publisher's blurb). "Lars Kepler" is the pseudonym of an identically named Swedish couple, Alexander and Alexandra Ahndoril. The basis of the brilliant film adaptation by Lasse Hallstrom. An absolute "must-have" title for Lars Kepler collectors. This is a copy of the Signed First British Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed four times in black pen on the title page by the authors: "Lars Kepler/Alexander Ahndoril, Lars Kepler/Alexandra Ahndoril". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such multi-signed copies of the First British Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have major flaws because they have been read from cover to cover. A scarce signed copy thus. Two of the most brilliant Swedish mystery/thriller novelists of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0007359101. Bookseller Inventory # 19312
Synopsis: The No 1 Scandinavian crime bestseller. Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm. Detective Inspector Joona Linna is faced with a boy who witnessed the gruesome murder of his family. He's suffered more than one hundred knife wounds and is comatose with shock. Linna's running out of time. The killer's on the run and, seemingly, there are no clues.

As the hypnosis begins, a long and terrifying chain of events unfurls with reverberations far beyond Linna's case.
