Alex

by Pierre Lemaitre

Classic French crime meets Scandi Noir in a truly gripping thriller in which the eponymous Alex is at least as fascinating as detective Commandant Verhoeven: and that's saying something. I can't wait for the second title which is promised for 2014.

That day at the morgue, they didn't speak to each other. It's tricky offering your condolences when the deceased is a serial killer who has destroyed the lives of half a dozen families.
