About the Book

IF YOU FIND ONE,

HE’S ALREADY FOUND YOU

The heart-pounding debut from the creator of the hit Scandinavian television show The Killing.

A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.

His calling card is a “chestnut man”—a handmade doll made of matchsticks and two chestnuts—which he leaves at each bloody crime scene.

Examining the dolls, forensics makes a shocking discovery—a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, a government minister’s daughter who had been kidnapped and murdered a year ago.

A tragic coincidence—or something more twisted?

To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man’s gruesome clues.

Because it’s clear that the madman is on a mission that is far from over.

And no one is safe.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“A tension-charged debut. . . . Incendiary.” - Financial Times

“This might just be the thriller of the year. The Chestnut Man grips you from the opening page and never lets go, as we’re pulled into a haunting whirlwind of secrets, deception and the dark side of the soul. The policing is top-notch, of course, and the characters—good and bad—are so real we’re sure we’ve met them before. Brilliant!” - Jeffery Deaver, author of The Never Game

“A full-throttle thriller in the tradition of classic Stiegg Larsson, drenched in atmosphere and charged with adrenaline. Buckle up. You’ll gulp down every word. I loved this book.” - A.J. Finn, author of the The Woman in the Window
