Through the dark wood where the dead trees give no shelter Nanna Birk Larsen runs . . . There is a bright monocular eye that follows, like a hunter after a wounded deer. It moves in a slow approaching zigzag, marching through the Pineseskoven wasteland, through the Pentecost Forest. The chill water, the fear, his presence not so far away . . . There is one torchlight on her now, the single blazing eye. And it is here . . . Sarah Lund is looking forward to her last day as a detective with the Copenhagen Police department before moving to Sweden. But everything changes when nineteen-year-old student, Nanna Birk Larsen, is found raped and brutally murdered in the woods outside the city. Lund’s plans to relocate are put on hold as she leads the investigation along with fellow detective Jan Meyer. While Nanna’s family struggles to cope with their loss, local politician, Troels Hartmann, is in the middle of an election campaign to become the new mayor of Copenhagen. When links between City Hall and the murder suddenly come to light , the case takes an entirely different turn. Over the course of twenty days, suspect upon suspect emerges as violence, political intrigue cast their shadows over the hunt for the killer.

The woman is a massive accident. I wouldn't even be in the same office as her. Good book though. Why does it have to be 100 characters . Make it tight and to the point.

When I first opened this book and read the list of characters, I thought that there were far too many to incorporate in one novel. How wrong I was! This is an enthralling adaptation with so many twists in the unfolding tale, that it becomes almost impossible to put the book down. If crime thrillers are your thing, then I thoroughly recommend this book. I cannot wait to read the sequel!

Truely unable to put this one down.

The most contorted twisting thriller I have ever read. Language captures the bleak simplicity of the original TV show. I had watched the start of the TV series before I started reading. I am therefore not sure whether the characters would have been quite so brilliantly visualised in my mind without this.
