VICTIM WITHOUT A FACE STEFAN AHNHEM

A KILLER WITH A MESSAGE

The first victim was a bully who liked using his fists. The second was a thug who favoured steel-capped boots. Their bodies bore the marks of a killer who knew their sins. A single clue was left at the scene: a class photo from 1982, with two faces neatly crossed out.
A DETECTIVE WHO CAN’T LET GO
 
There are eighteen men and women in the photo who are still alive – and one of them is the lead detective on the case. Fabian Risk thought he’d left his schooldays behind. Now his classmates are dying for the sins of their childhood… Who is the faceless killer who’s come back to haunt them?
CAN YOU EVER HIDE FROM JUSTICE?
MY REVIEW
TWENTY FORMER CLASSMATES. TWO RECENT VICTIMS. ONE FACELESS KILLER.
Victim Without a Face is a Scandinavia thriller and it as good as any thriller.  Fabian was offered a job as detective inspector with the Helsingborg police. The story of Victim Without a Face opens with a series of gruesomely inventive killings in the Swedish town of Helsinborg. The police investigations quickly establish that the victims were all once pupils from the same class in the same school. For Fabian the lead investigator, was a pupil too in the same class, and is a potential victim and a potential suspect.
A TV series of the book is currently in production with Nordisk, and is due for release in 2016. The author Stefan Ahnhem lives in Stockholm and is an established screenwriter. He has worked in both TV and film.
