Deft writing, nuanced characters and an intriguing, action-packed plot, THE DISCIPLE is from the top shelf of Scandinavian crime writing. The Sebastian Bergman crime novels are so popular they've been made into television dramas which have aired all over the world. THE DISCIPLE opens with psychologist and criminal profiler Sebastian Bergman doing everything he can to bring some order into his chaotic life. Having tried to find his daughter for many years, he's at last learned her identity - and she happens to be Vanya, a respected colleague of his. Though Sebastian longs to tell Vanya that he's her biological father, he also understands it may complicate her life given she already has a 'dad', whom she loves. At the same time, Sebastian's old team in the National Crime Squad - including Vanya - is investigating a series of brutal murders of women. The murders remind Sebastian of Edward Hinde, a convicted serial killer he put behind bars many years ago. But Hinde is still in jail, which leads the police to believe that they might be dealing with a copycat. Sebastian manages to convince Torkel, his old boss and teamleader, to let him have a close look at the investigation. He comes to the unsettling conclusion that all the victims are connected to him - and that Vanya might be in imminent danger. From the bestselling authors of DARK SECRETS, this is the second Sebastian Bergman book made into a television show and aired internationally to wide acclaim.From the bestselling authors of DARK SECRETS, this is the second Sebastian Bergman book made into a television show and aired internationally to wide acclaim.
