Title: The Hypnotist

Author: Lars Kepler

Published: Published June 21st 2011 by Sarah Crichton Books (first published January 1st 2009)

Genre: Crime/Murder, Mystery

Format: Paperback

Notes: Short chapters enhanced this novel to feel like a fast-paced mystery. 

This novel has been on my bookshelf for longer than I care to admit. I think all book lovers can relate, you buy books and it takes forever to get to them. 

This book is written by a Swedish literary couple under the name Lars Kepler.  Much in the same vein as Stieg Larsson, this is a fast-paced thriller.

The novel starts out with a boy, Josef, in critical condition with stab wounds all over his body. His family have all been murdered with the same method of attack. Detective Inspector Joona Linna has taken over the case and with the help of Erik, a hypnotist who doesn't practice anymore, they decide to hypnotize Josef to find out who attacked him and his family. From there it's a wild ride into the lives of all three of these characters.

There are more books to the series following Joona Linna and I think I'll read more!
