X Ways to Die

(2020)
(The fourth book in the Fabian Risk series)
A novel by

 
 


A murderous game. The killer makes the rules. Death hangs on the roll of the dice.



In murder investigations, it pays to keep things simple: motive, method, opportunity. But the case in front of Detective Fabian Risk is a nightmare. A killer who strikes out of nowhere. No apparent motive. No consistent method. Victims are tortured, strangled, burned, dismembered – each grisly killing carried out with savage precision, as if following the rules of a hellish game.

Fear and chaos have spread through the seaside town of Helsingborg. While Fabian Risk hunts the killer, his life is falling apart: a son on the run from the law; a daughter gravely injured; a colleague with dark secrets of his own. But there's no turning back now. The game of death is on, and Fabian Risk must play to win.

After all, there are many ways to die...



This explosive thriller from Scandinavia's most inventive storyteller concludes the epic events of Motive X.
