The seventh gripping thriller in Lars Kepler’s bestselling series featuring Joona Linna.


Sweden’s most notorious serial killer, Jurek Walter, was shot and killed years ago. The police moved on and managed to forget the darkness that had tainted their lives.

Now, a mysterious killer is brutally murdering Europe’s most loathsome criminals. When police discover that two of the victims have connections to Detective Joona Linna, it’s clear that somebody is trying to send him a message. As the body count rises, the evidence seems to point to a ghost from Joona’s past…the most terrifying villain he’s ever had to face.

Joona is convinced that his worst nightmare is about to become a reality: Jurek Walter, the man who tore apart his family, has returned to finish the job.

Story Locale: Sweden

Series Overview: Joona Linna Seris: Book #7

Joona Linna, the tall, charismatic chief inspector in the Swedish Police Force, says little but sees and registers everything. He is strong, fearless, and one of the most reliable investigators on the force. But this brilliant veneer conceals a painful past, and he often won’t hesitate to use unconventional, sometimes questionable, methods to solve his cases. Dark, psychological, and often graphic, the Joona Linna tales by Lars Kepler are some of Sweden’s most successful crime thriller books.

AUDIENCE: A must-read series for fans of the masters like STIEG LARSSON, JO NESBO, and HENNING MANKELL.

“From the opening line, Kepler sets an ominous tone, cold and heavy with a taught sense of anticipation that will keep readers flying through the pages despite their fear of what might come next. Absolutely terrifying and beautifully written. I’m a fan for life!” —Tami Hoag, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Boy
  
“One of the best thrillers of the year! Kepler treats us readers to a nonstop roller coaster of suspense, taking us deep into the hearts and minds of perfectly realized characters. And, oh, what a villain! Lazarus is the definition of a one-sitting read!” —Jeffery Deaver, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Goodbye Man
  
“Kepler’s characters, particularly Joona Linna, are always drawn sharp and deep, like scalpel cuts. Kepler’s prose unrolls as smoothly as a loop of razor wire. But it’s Kepler’s storytelling that really draws blood. Lazarus is as literate as peak Michael Connelly and as addictive as David Baldacci.”
—A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Woman in the Window

Lazarus is written in the fast and furiously paced present in short, bitty chapters that move quickly between characters and scenes to ramp up tension. This gives them an intense, cinematic feel. Characters, even minor ones, are well-developed and credibly flawed with painful pasts. The plot is pretty twisty too, so why these books haven’t been turned into mainstream movies or a TV boxed set is anyone’s guess. Surely Scandi noir hasn’t had its day quite yet? While Lazarus can be read as a standalone, it’s more enjoyable when read as a sequel to The Sandman. But be warned: it’s pretty bloodthirsty. I lapped it up.”—Evening Standard, UK
 
“Lars Kepler, pseudonym of husband-and-wife crime-writing team Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril and Alexander Ahndoril, was Sweden’s best-selling author of the 2010s, across all genres and in any language. Seven novels down the line, their amalgam of Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole series and Stieg Larsson’s bloody gothic mayhem is also gripping international audiences. Their knack is to sketch believable characters while the plot clatters along like an out-of-control roller-coaster. This tale of a series of elaborate murders across Scandinavia is linked to past novels featuring Kepler’s most barbaric villain, Jurek Walter. The result is savage but irresistible.”—Metro, UK
 
“[T]his is deeply visceral stuff, largely keeps cliché at bay and is handled with a casual assurance that makes it unputdownable.”—European Literature Network, UK
