The Chestnut Man
By Soren Sveistrup
Why this book?
Wow, I discovered this book because I get the daily email of discounted books to read from bookbub.com. I rarely buy a book (because I have so many), but I couldn’t pass this one up. I’m glad I did buy it. I couldn’t put it down. The suspense doesn’t end from the first scene until the last scene. My title was British books, but I digress, because this one is set in Norway. I know this was an English translation, but it was so good, I relished the language used. I love stories where natural things are used for sinister purposes, and where little nursery rhymes are completely creepy. At the end, I was reminded of the Silence of the Lambs trilogy, though this book is not as bloody. It is worth getting. I guarantee.
