About the Book

Determined to find his son’s killer, Henning doggedly follows an increasingly dangerous trail, where dark hands from the past emerge to threaten everything. His ex-wife Nora is pregnant with another man’s child, his sister Trine is implicated in the fire that killed his son and, with everyone he thought he could trust seemingly hiding something, Henning has nothing to lose … except his own life.

Packed with tension and unexpected twists, Killed is the long-awaited finale of one of the darkest, most chilling and emotive series you may ever read. Someone will be killed. But who?

My Review

With thanks to the publisher for the copy received.
Killed is the final book in the series that features Henning Juul and is the second that I have read. The story follows immediately after the previous book Cursed , if you haven’t read any of the series I would recommend that you at least read that one. Juul is intent on getting answers related to his latest discovery into the circumstances regarding his son’s death. From the prologue you know that he got his answers and more with tragic consequences.
Many threads are tied up in this novel from the earlier books. Despite not having read them from the beginning I could follow it reasonably well with the help of the character listing at the front.
Many of the characters are criminals, some you know who they are, but some have their true personality hidden. As is usual, much of the corruption that occurs is connected to money but there are also other reasons for the crimes that are committed. Anybody familiar with European history will appreciate the need to find answers about the past. And how a person who needs to know can be manipulated.
Whilst the prologue brought fear and resignation the epilogue brought poignancy and farewell. A flawed character whose desire for the truth had a cost. I will miss him.
