BOOK REVIEW
The Hypnotist’ by Lars Kepler

Fans of Scandinavian authors Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo will be thrilled to discover this suspenseful psychological page turner set in Sweden and filled with lots of plot twists and surprises.

The story centers around Dr. Erik Maria Bark who is called in to hypnotize the sole survivor of a mass killing.

The shocking results of that session set in motion a chain of events that takes the Dr., his family, and Detective Inspector Joona Linna on a harrowing investigation.

A real page turner!

Highly recommend!

Until next time…see you in the stacks!
