X sätt att dö X Ways to Die
Fabian Risk #5
Night is about to fall as an inflatable boat sets out from the docks of Råå harbor. Onboard is a man with a sword strapped to his back. His mission has been determined by the dice: One person has to die. Who, he does not yet know.
For weeks the Helsingborg police department has been occupied by multiple parallel, complex investigations. Finally, they believe them to be solved. But when a new murder victim is discovered, the police must face the realization that everything they thought they knew, is wrong.
X Ways to Die, the fifth novel in the hit series about Fabian Risk, picks up just seconds after the end of Motive X. Stefan Ahnhem builds on his powerful crime epos and the ever-expanding universe created around Risk and his colleagues in Öresund as the reader is invited to join the final hunt for the man with the dice.
“Ahnhem continues in the same high quality manner as before, and this is a fast-paced thriller that stands out notably also in an international context.”
“The way [Ahnhem] constructs his plot is intense and brilliant. /…/ Truly thrilling. Stefan Ahnhem’s writing makes you lose your breath.”
“X Ways to Die is the most action-packed work of crime fiction I’ve read in years. It’s so exciting and nail-bitingly creepy that I sometimes had to pause the reading. /…/ X Ways to Die truly is an accomplished and well-thought-out crime novel with a bullet-proof plot and a suspense level that unrelentingly rises. /…/ The intensity is unabated from start to finish, and you’re so absorbed by the action that you end up looking over your shoulder constantly, trying to hide from the man with the dice.”
