Editorial Reviews

Review

“Full of surprises and more than enough twists to keep those pages turning well into the night.” —NPR

“Compellingly grisly.”
Vogue

“A gripping series of twists and turns.... A natural successor to the Stieg Larsson series.”
Parade

“A pulse-pounding debut that’s already a native smash.”
Financial Times(London)

Review

''Soon there will be Stieg Larsson crime fiction people and Lars Kepler crime fiction people: I'm hereby in the latter camp. The Hypnotist is every bit the equal of the Millennium trilogy--riveting narrative momentum, fascinatingly grisly forensics, existential Nordic dread. But there's more: superior prose, no cartoony characters, and beneath all the noir plenty of old fashioned heart.'' --Kurt Andersen, New York Times bestselling author

''Lars Kepler enthralls readers with
The Hypnotist, just like Stieg Larsson did with the Millennium series.'' --Norrkopings Tidningar (Sweden)

''A cracking pace . . . Kepler belongs on every international crime fan's reading list.'' --
Booklist

''Stieg Larsson may be gone, but his ghost still haunts both the publishing world and the popular imagination.'' --
Library Journal

''Loved, loved, loved
The Hypnotist. I am a huge fan of Scandinavian crime fiction, and The Hypnotist far surpasses anything I have read in the genre. . . It's the best thriller I've read in a very long time: smart, compulsive, and never predictable. Comparisons run through my mind--Dennis Lehane, James Lee Burke, Henning Mankell--all their great books with flawed protagonists that bring the storyline closer to the reader. I think we can sell this book to a very wide audience.'' --Sally Brewster, Park Road Books --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
