The Rabbit Hunter: A Novel

We rated this book:


There is a killer on the loose wanting revenge for something that happened to his mother thirty years ago. That is the basic plot for a novel that starts off interesting and intriguing, diverges into passages that take forever to explore and kind of derail the book, and ends in a finale so rushed and incomprehensible that it basically has no point except to up the body count. This is not the best work by Lars Kepler.

We follow the Security Police as they investigate the death of the Swedish Foreign Minister and find a living call girl at the crime scene. As they struggle to piece together the clues and to hide the minister’s real life, the Security Police follow a series of dead ends. After that, we follow talented celebrity chef Rex Muller trying to get his life back together. Then there is the disgraced and jailed cop who solves the case almost instantly after being free for one day. Other side characters in the book are forgettable and do not add much other than increasing the page count.
