|Summary, etc.:||""An atmospheric and complicated saga of crimes that criss-cross the narrow strait between Sweden and Denmark...great cop characters...and some imaginatively grisly perps."-- Sunday Times Would you kill for the one you love? That's the question that international bestseller Stefan Ahnhem's The Ninth Grave: A Fabian Risk Novel seeks to answer in this spine-tingling thriller set six months before the events in Victim Without a Face. On a cold winter evening, the Swedish minister of justice disappears without a trace from the short walk between the house of Parliament and his car. At the same time the wife of a famous Danish TV-star is found brutally murdered in her luxury home north of Copenhagen. Soon more bodies are discovered, all missing different body parts. As criminal investigator Fabian Risk and Danish counterpart Dunja Hougaard race to put the pieces together, they are dragged into a conspiracy worse than anyone could imagine."|

In this sequel to Victim without a Face (2015), driven Stockholm detective Fabian Risk's mentor taps him to launch a covert investigation into the Minister of Justice's disappearance (covert because state security has claimed the case). Unfortunately, the minister is killed before Risk finds him, and the evidence points to Ossian Krempf, a cannibalistic serial killer who has been supposedly rehabilitated and released. Meanwhile, in Copenhagen, Danish detective Dunja Hougaard targets suspected serial rapist and killer Benny Willumsen for the ax murder of a talk-show host's wife. But, after catching their big fish, Dunja and Fabian harbor doubts that their respective cases have actually been solved, and a re-examination of the evidence points both toward a plot involving the Israeli embassy, organ trafficking, and a complex cover-up. For fans of Scandinavian crime fiction, this hefty, richly detailed procedural has it all: gritty, snow-covered cities; nightmarish serial killers; and juicy moral dilemmas. Recommended for readers seeking skilled storytelling touched with horror and suspense, such as Lars Kepler's Joona Linna tales and Jo Nesbø's Harry Hole thrillers. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
