The Rabbit Hunter

About the Book:

Detective Joona Linna is finishing out a sentence at Kumla prison for assaulting an officer in the course of his last investigation when he is summoned to a meeting with the Swedish prime minister. The foreign minister has been brutally murdered. There's a chance more political figures could be targeted. The police need Linna to find the killer and neutralize the threat, so he's granted a temporary release from prison. But when another murder occurs, Linna realizes he's dealing with something far more complex, and far more terrifying, than anyone imagined. As the body count grows, Linna begins to understand that he can't do this alone and he reaches out to Saga Bauer, the young security police detective, for help. Now, together, the two race against time to unravel the killer's intricate plan before he can take his ultimate revenge.

My Review

This is the first book I have read in this series. You can tell the difference between American authors and authors from other countries. It seems that the authors from other countries take more liberties with their stories. This is a good thing. 

In regards, to the action. There was none of that lacking. Also, you may lose count of all of the bodies that pile up. I read that some readers thought this book was on the violent side. I personally did not think it was but I could see where it might be for those who have a weaker taste for violence. 

I did experience where because I had not rad the prior novels, I did not have an established relationship with Linna. So that did take away some from the book. There was not a great connection to Linna or the other characters in this book. Lastly, I did feel like this book could have been about a hundred pages shorter. I may go back and start with book one to see where the journey all began.
