9781780894553: The Man Who Watched Women

If you like Jo Nesbo, you will love this! Deft writing, nuanced characters and an intriguing, action-packed plot, this is Scandinavian crime at its best.
     Psychologist Sebastian Bergman desperately needs some order in his chaotic life. Having tried to find his daughter for many years, he's at last learned her identity: she happens to be Vanya, a respected police colleague. At the same time, Sebastian's old team in the National Crime Squad -- including Vanya -- is investigating a series of brutal murders. The murders remind Sebastian of Edward Hinde, a convicted serial killer he put behind bars many years ago. But Hinde is still in jail, which leads the police to believe that they might be dealing with a copycat. Soon Sebastian is called into the investigation, and finds himself working alongside Vanya once more. But it's not long before he realises the victims are all connected to him -- and that Vanya might be in imminent danger.
