Whoever committed the crimes wanted this boy to die: he's suffered more than one hundred knife wounds and lapsed into a state of shock.

He enlists Dr. Erik Maria Bark to mesmerize the boy, hoping to discover the killer through his eyes. nbsp; It's the sort of work that Bark has sworn he would never do again--ethically dubious and psychically scarring.

Now it's America's turn. Combining the addictive power of the Stieg Larsson trilogy with the storytelling drive of The Silence of the Lambs , this adrenaline-drenched thriller is spellbinding from its very first page.
