The Man Who Watched Women opening line: As the taxi turned in Tolléns väg just before seven thirty in the evening, Richard Granlund didn’t think his day could get much worse.
Perfectly translated by Marlaine Delargy, you cannot tell that this book has two authors. It is well written and the story gripped me from start to finish. Sebastian Bergman used to be a leading criminal profiler, but now he is a mess. He lost his wife and daughter in the 2004 tsunami and he cannot tell his ex work colleague that she is actually his child. He is obsessed with following her and trying to inject himself into her life. Now women are dying because of him, and the master mind behind their deaths wants revenge. He is out to destroy Sebastian any which way he can. In order to stop him Sebastian goes back to work where his past relationship and dealing with Ursula, Vanja and Trolle need to put aside in order to capture the most dangerous of serial killers.
