Victim Without a Face

Victim Without a Face - Stefan Ahnhem

"A killer with a message. The first victim was a School Bully who liked using his fists. The second was a thug who method of abuse was steel toe capped boots. A single clue of a School Class photograph from 1982 was left at the scene with two faces crossed out. There are eighteen people in the photograph and one of them is the lead detective Fabian Risk.

A dark and gripping thriller set in Sweden. I read this as it had been likened to [b:The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo|2429135|The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)|Stieg Larsson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327868566s/2429135.jpg|1708725] and [b:I Am Pilgrim|18144124|I Am Pilgrim (Pilgrim, #1)|Terry Hayes|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1403345411s/18144124.jpg|20434723] two books that I have really enjoyed in the genre of crime thriller novels.

Victim without a Face is well thought out thriller but for me it started out very slow and I wasn't sure I was even going to finish this one as I was finding it a bit tedious but it certainly picks up pace half way through and is one of those books that keeps you guessing right up until the end.

A word of warning it is quite a gruesome book but its a well written and extremely well translated thriller.
