The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup was such a good thriller! I first heard about this book on The Popcast podcast when it was Jamie B. Golden’s “green light” one week. (LOVE this podcast and it brings so much joy to my weekly work commutes.)
Originally written in Danish, this was a fast-paced thriller about a serial killer out for revenge. At first glance there’s no connection between the victims, a missing teenager, and the chestnut dolls found at each scene, but as the case comes together the motive and connections become clear.
This is a beefy book, but it flew by because of character development and an excellent plot. I was always wanting to read just one more chapter and stayed up way too late several nights and even with lofty expectations I was not disappointed.
I recently read that this book will be coming to Netflix soon as an original series and I can’t wait! If you like a good thriller, definitely give this one a try!
