The Sandman by Lars Kepler

Reviewed by Cassidy Hammel (Library Staff)

Performing in a duo under the pseudonym Lars Kepler, this husband-and-wife team corner the block on unnerving by fracturing the childhood nursery rhyme The Sandman. Tension is palpable and the page and a half chapter maximum makes it nearly impossible for the reader to put down. A hollow shell of a man appears without the boyish charm he’d had before he was kidnapped ten years ago. In critical health and driven by the need to find his captive sister, he can only liken his memories of his captor to the Sandman. Racing against sickness, time and a malicious serial killer locked in a secure psychiatric ward; he strains for his memories and recounts the chime of porcelain fingers quickly followed by a fog of debilitating sleep. Readers who enjoy Gregg Hurwitz and Jo Nesbo will feel right at home with the Sandman.
