9780230761742: The Killing

A pageturning adaptation of the first season of the original Danish television series The Killing, from the author of the Nic Costa series

Through the dark wood where the dead trees give no shelter Nanna Birk Larsen runs . . . There is a bright monocular eye that follows, like a hunter after a wounded deer. It moves in a slow approaching zigzag, marching through the Pineseskoven wasteland, through the Pentecost Forest. The chill water, the fear, his presence not so far away . . . There is one torchlight on her now, the single blazing eye. And it is here.

Sarah Lund is looking forward to her last day as a detective with the Copenhagen Police department before moving to Sweden. But everything changes when 19-year-old student Nanna Birk Larsen is found raped and brutally murdered in the woods outside the city. Lund's plans to relocate are put on hold as she leads the investigation along with fellow detective Jan Meyer. While Nanna's family struggles to cope with their loss, local politician Troels Hartmann is in the middle of an election campaign to become the new mayor of Copenhagen. When links between City Hall and the murder suddenly come to light, the case takes an entirely different turn. Over the course of 20 days, suspect upon suspect emerges as violence and political intrigue cast their shadows over the hunt for the killer.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* First up: this novel is based on the original Danish television series The Killing (more precisely, the first-season screenplay by Søren Sveistrup), and not on the American remake. Second up: this is such a good book, so rich in its characters and writing, that familiarity with its source material is completely unnecessary. Its story, in which a Copenhagen police detective lands a politically sensitive murder case the day before she’s scheduled to move to Sweden, is wonderfully told. Hewson is, of course, the author of several excellent mysteries, including the popular Nic Costa novels, and he was an excellent choice here: his own elegant prose style perfectly captures the mood of the story. Not merely a spin-off of a high-profile television property, this is a fully realized novel that stands on its own two feet, while at the same time reimagining the television series, taking its characters and story in new directions and exploring them in new ways. A splendid book and perhaps a new benchmark for literary adaptations of screen stories. --David Pitt
