By Lars Kepler
I ett omklädningsrum på en idrottsplats i Tumba utanför Stockholm hittas en guy brutalt mördad. Sedan återfinns hans fru och dotter lika besinningslöst ihjälhuggna i familjens radhus. Avsikten tycks ha varit att utplåna hela familjen.
Men sonen överlever, svårt skadad, och när kriminalkommissarie Joona Linna förstår att det finns ännu en familjemedlem kvar i livet, en syster, inser han vikten av att hitta henne innan mördaren gör det.
Sonen svävar in och ut ur medvetslöshet, och för att kunna skynda på förhörsprocessen tar Joona Linna kontakt med läkaren Erik Maria Bark och övertalar honom att hypnotisera pojken för att få en bild av händelseförloppet.
Därmed bryter Erik Maria Bark sitt gamla löfte att aldrig mer hypnotisera och en skrämmande kedja av händelser tar obevekligt sin början.

But then, when it really hit me, I slapped my fist forward, hitting his fingers and knocking the lighter away. It winked out and clattered against the floor. I'd knocked over a glass and it rolled on the table top, the liquor and water dripping off the table's edge. There was no illumination behind Stone, only the reflection from those spotlights focused on the dance floor, but there was enough of a glow so that I could see him start to move.

" Beasley shrugged, but Sebastian Wise got to his feet. "You can call me at home if anything important comes up. " He looked Page 21 Wailing Frail, A Shell Scott Detective Mystery at me and grinned.

The big guy was still standing alongside the body. Satin wasn't in sight. I went through the curtained archway and down a narrow passageway to a hall lined with closed doors. I saw one door with a silver star on it and knocked. " "Shell Scott. " Satin opened the door.
