NINTH GRAVE is a spine-tingling thriller set six months before the events in VICTIM WITHOUT A FACE. It is the 2nd stand-alone novel about detective Fabian Risk. On a cold winter evening, the Swedish minister of justice disappears without a trace from the short walk between the house of Parliament and his car. At the same time the wife of a famous Danish TV-star is found brutally murdered in her luxury home north of Copenhagen. Soon more bodies are discovered, all missing different body parts. As Risk and Danish counterpart Dunja Hougaard race to put the pieces together, they are dragged into a conspiracy worse than anyone could imagine.
