Today I am on the Blog Tour for Thomas Enger’s book Killed, published by Orenda Books on the 28th February 2018
About the Book
Crime reporter Henning Juul thought his life was over when his young son was murdered. But that was only the beginning…
Determined to find his son’s killer, Henning doggedly follows an increasingly dangerous trail, where dark hands from the past emerge to threaten everything. His ex-wife Nora is pregnant with another man’s child, his sister Trine is implicated in the fire that killed his son and, with everyone he thought he could trust seemingly hiding something, Henning has nothing to lose … except his own life.
Packed with tension and unexpected twists, Killed is the long-awaited finale of one of the darkest, most chilling and emotive series you may ever read. Someone will be killed. But who?
This is the fifth, and final, book in the Henning Juul series, and, as it is the last one, you do really need to read the rest of the series first to understand the main story plot lines.
The book is very dark, which is quite standard for the genre and I really enjoyed coming back to a series I read a while ago and couldn’t wait to get back into the conclusion of this brilliant series.
It is almost impossible to talk about the actual book without giving any spoilers away, so the review is going to be hard to write.
Needless to say it is a very emotional and dark book as we try to figure to what happened to Henning’s son all the way back in book 1 and this book jumps all over the place timeline-wise so we learn a lot more about the back stories and the story is brilliant at ensuring you don’t know what is going to happen at the end.
This was a brilliant read and I can’t wait to read more books by Thomas in the future.
