Book Review: The Chestnut Man - Søren Sveistrup

“If you find one, he’s already fund you. A psychopath is terrorising Copenhagen. His calling care is ‘Chestnut Man’, a handmade doll made of matchsticks and 2 chestnuts, which he leaves at each bloody crib scene. Examining the dolls, forensics making a shocking discovery, a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, a government ministers daughter who have been kidnapped and murdered a year ago. A tragic coincidence or something more twisted? To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man’s gruesome clues. Because it’s clear that the madman is on a mission that is far from over. And no one is safe.” 

If you like books that keep you on the edge of your seat then I think you’ll really like 'The Chestnut Man' written by Søren Sveistrup. It’s a really fantastic read, that I think is really well written and always leaves you wanting to know more. Although the book is over 450 pages, it has reasonably short chapters which I think helps make for an easy read. The ending was definitely not what I was expecting but a great ending the had come full circle. I'll definitely be looking into more of Sveistrup's books.
