The second book in the #1 internationally bestselling Joona Linna series, The Nightmare finds Joona teaming up with a national security agent to solve two murders and take down a network of arms dealers before they can kill again.

One summer night, police discover the lifeless body of a young woman on an abandoned pleasure boat. Forensics indicate that she drowned, but her clothes are dry and the boat is still afloat. The next day, a man is found hanging in his completely empty apartment. It seems like a suicide, but how did he kill himself with no furniture to climb on? Detective Joona Linna is called in to investigate, and he soon finds a surprising connection: arms trafficking. Because of the potential tie to terrorism, Joona is forced to join forces with Saga Bauer, a rising star at S&aauml;po, the Swedish National Security Service. To stop the bloodshed, the two must find a way to get into the heads of dangerous arms dealers, but what they find there will shake them to their very cores. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Smith | 2/10/2014

    " After reading the hypnotist this was a HUGE HUGE HUGE let down. I could not put down the hypnotist and read the over 500 page book in days this one took me 3 weeks... It had so much extra full in it that was not needed. So really if you loved the hypnotist like I did don't read this one or you will be disappointed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Afsheen | 2/5/2014

    " I liked the plot, and I liked the way the story was build up. A definitive high point ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/29/2014

    " Fantastic read, intelligent, highly descriptive with great twists in the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Cullen | 1/16/2014

    " I found that I enjoyed this book much more than the Hypnotist. The plot did not get side tracked like in their first book. The plot was intriguing. The character is very interesting and I would like there to be more about him. The book is focused primarily on the crime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sébastien Gass | 1/15/2014

    " Better than "l'hypnotiseur"... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 1/10/2014

    " A quick read, the first book in this series was quite dark, like the first book of the Millennium series. But this book was a mostly a straight up caper. Enjoyable though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 12/9/2013

    " An excellent book. Still searching for the new Stieg Larsson, but Kepler get's close to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 11/15/2013

    " Great read. Even better than The Hypnotist! Fast paced. Many plot twists. Well crafted story. Bravo! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tania | 11/7/2013

    " Good, not great.. if you love Scandinavian crime fiction put it on your 'to read' shelf, otherwise its probably not for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 10/31/2013

    " Infinitely better than 'The Hypnotist' - mind you, that wouldn't be hard. A racy plot, slightly better characterisation than its predecessor, but still a lot of superfluous violence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig Jarvis | 10/25/2013

    " For a long time I didn't know where the author was going with this book. It started off and finished at a fast pace but there were times in the middle that I seriously considered not finishing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia | 8/22/2013

    " Damn good for a mystery read. Not an ounce of fat. Interesting characters, excellent plotting, & enough politics & over-the-top action to keep the men interested too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christa | 7/6/2013

    " No where near as good as The Hypnotist. Disappointing. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 6/10/2013

    " crisp, present tense thriller very much in the Scandinavian noir mode. I gave this four stars for enjoyment value, so be aware of my bias toward this style and genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Astrid | 4/15/2013

    " Read it in Swedish and I enjoyed it. It's not an amazing book, but it's hardly one I regret buying to read during a day of travelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Semonè | 3/25/2013

    " I got this book Thursday Aug 2,2012. On page 163. If i didn't have to work, this book would be done. Hope to finish it Friday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William | 3/23/2013

    " A little contrived in places. Not as good as his last book, The Hypnotist". Interesting setting in Sweden and some interesting characters--although a little improbable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deadra | 8/28/2012

    " I like this Swedish author almost as much as Stieg Larson. "
