Killed by Thomas Enger
They say all good things have to come to an end at some point but this is one end I never wanted to come. So it is that we have reached the finale of one of the great crime series. The last in the Henning Juul series. But what a finale. Superbly crafted and delivered. Killed by Thomas Enger delivers a final punch that is a must read for all lovers of Nordic crime noir.
I did say this was a book worthy of reading. Be prepared as your senses and your emotions will be tried and tested. For Henning Juul life was over after his son was killed. Opening with a step back to thirteen years previous. Our crime investigative journalist Juul is on the trail of his son’s killer. Juul is scarred deeply and life seems to offer nothing more for him except to find whoever murdered his son and he will do whatever he needs to make that happen. But who can he trust now?
He knows that there are dark forces at large out there and that not only his life but the lives of those he loves will be at great danger the closer he gets to the truth. And the truth is out there. All I will say at this point is that some people are going to die in the process of seeking the truth. This is one of the most explosive and emotional rollercoasters I have been on when it comes to reading and reviewing crime novel. It is impossible to review too much without giving a lot away. This final book in the series just explodes in your hands. The pace leaves you breathless. Then the ending will have you reeling and numb.
Just imagine you are Henning Juul and you want answers regardless of the consequences. Your life is over so you have not a lot to live for. Find the truth even if it means dying in the process of seeking answers and finding those who killed your son.
Thomas Enger has delivered a finale that will make you feel you have been hit by an express train. Killed is not just brilliant it is totally outstanding and worthy of hitting our small screens. My advice is simple. Cancel all your plans with this book and ignore the phone and lock yourself away as you will not put this book down. Killed is breath-taking. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
