A new thriller by Swedish author Lars Kepler has been added to the collection but is usually checked out and not on the shelf. “The Hypnotist” is impossible to put down. Placed in Sweden, a gruesome triple-homicide gathers the attention of Detective Inspector Joona Linna. The killer is still on the loose, and there’s only one surviving witness– the boy whose family was killed in front of him. Whoever committed the crimes wanted this boy to die; the victim of more than 100 knife wounds, he has lapsed into a state of shock. Desperate for information, Linna sees only one option: hypnotism. When he hypnotizes the victim, a long and terrifying chain of events begins to happen. Kepler, the pen name for a husband and wife writing team, has been compared to Stieg Larrson author of “The Girl” trilogy.
