Description

This atmospheric and sinister mystery will have you “hooked from the very first page” (Kyle Mills, #1 New York Times bestselling author) as it follows a brilliant female detective investigating the darkest side of humanity.

Detective Leonore Asker seems to have the leading position at Malmö’s Major Crime Division within reach. But things go awry when, in the middle of a high profile kidnapping case, management relegates her to the so-called Department of Lost Souls—the unit for odd, cold cases banished to the basement of the police station.

Despite the humiliation, Asker is drawn into one of the more peculiar cases. Someone is secretly placing small ominous figures in a huge model train displays and one of the figures seems to represent the missing woman from the kidnapping case. As Asker’s investigation leads her into the world of the abandoned and forgotten, she reaches out to her old friend and urban explorer Martin Hill. Together they discover that an unusual kind of evil lurks—at the heart of a mountain, deep down in the darkness.

“Absorbing, deftly plotted, bone-chilling” (Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author), The Mountain King will twist its way under your skin.
