Oh Dear! Oh Dear! What have I done, I’ve been such a terrible reader. Where has Thomas Enger been all my life, now most people would read a series of books from the beginning, but Oh No not me, not this time, I read the last one first, but I now have rectified the error of my ways and acquired the rest in the series.
Killed is the final instalment in The Henning Juul series, I would seriously recommend reading the full series to obtain the full effect of Thomas Enger’s gritty, tension filled writing style. Opening the book I was in complete and utter awe, I wasn’t sure how to respond, I had a mixture of emotions from the excitement and anticipation to full on OMG. However, there was no way I was backing down, Killed was mine and my eyes were fully locked and loaded with every page turn.
Henning is a crime reporter who utilizes every source he has to fulfil a mission that will hopefully bring a conclusion to the search for the culprits that killed his son, the darkness of the characters Henning’s interacts with are dangerous but they hold secrets, secrets which may never be revealed. The answers are tantalizingly close, Enger dangles a thin veiled thread before your eyes, only for you to lose your grip and feel it slip through the recesses of your mind once again.
I’m not going to try and discuss the plotline, the difficulty I have is not spoiling the book, its emotionally ensnaring, through the characters and situations each become embroiled in, even the descriptive narrative of the settings took my breath away. The links to sections in the past instalments in the series are riddled throughout the book, making it slightly difficult to keep up but I would say I managed to read between the lines but I will be going back to read the series from the beginning.
Thank you to Thomas Enger, Anne Cater and Orenda Books for the advanced readers copy of Killed to read, in exchange for an honest review. Killed is a book like no other, Enger has imprinted his visionary narrative on my very soul and I look forward to future writings from Thomas Enger with bated breath.
