A #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER The newest crime novel sensation: In this shocking and suspenseful psychological thriller, a police detective must confront a monstrous evil that forces her to question how much suffering one person can inflict upon another before creating a monster. In a Stockholm city park, police discover the mutilated body of a young boy. Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg heads the investigation, battling an apathetic prosecutor and a bureaucratic police force unwilling to devote resources to solving the murder of a nameless immigrant child. But with the discovery of two more children's corpses, it becomes clear that a serial killer is at large. Jeanette turns to therapist Sofia Zetterlund for her expertise in psychopathic perpetrators and their lives become increasingly intertwined, professionally and personally. As they draw closer to the truth about the killings--working together but, ultimately, each on her own--we come to understand that these murders are only the most obvious evidence of a hellishly insidious evil woven deep into Swedish society. As viscerally dramatic as it is psychologically intense, The Crow Girl is a tale of almost unfathomably heinous deeds, and of the profound damage--and the equally profound need for revenge--left in their wake.

A shocking murder in an affluent Helsinki suburb has ties to witchcraft and the occult in this thrilling U.S. debut from Finnish author Max Seeck. A bestselling author’s wife has been found dead in a gorgeous black evening gown, sitting at the head of an empty dining table. Her most chilling feature—her face is frozen in a ghastly smile. At first it seems as though a deranged psychopath is reenacting the gruesome murders from the Witch Hunt trilogy, bestsellers written by the victim’s husband. But investigator Jessica Niemi soon realizes she’s not looking for a single killer but rather for dozens of believers in a sinister form of witchcraft who know her every move and are always one step ahead. As the bodies start piling up, Jessica knows they won’t stop until they get what they want. And when her dark past comes to light, Jessica finds herself battling her own demons while desperately trying to catch a coven of killers before they claim their next victim.

As sensitive in its explorations of friendships as the author's How Far Would You Have Gotten If I Hadn't Called You Back? and Get It While It's Hot. Or Not, Hobbs's third novel revolves around Carolina--an impoverished 11-year-old living inside a converted school bus with her single mother and baby half-sister--and Stefan Millington Crouch III, the invalid son of wealthy parents. The two children meet after Carolina's mother, Melanie, parks their ""home on wheels"" on the Crouches' property and Stefan spies Carolina rescuing a baby crow that has fallen from its nest. In the same way Carolina gives protection to the half-starved fledgling, Stefan and his well-meaning mother offer Carolina a type of refuge, inviting her to stay with them while Melanie continues following the trail of her fickle boyfriend. Constructing rather well-worn metaphors out of Carolina's flightless crow, Stefan's caged pet and Stefan's own cumbersome wheelchair, Hobbs follows Carolina's thinking as she considers the Crouches' tempting offer but eventually decides that becoming a part of their family would be as unnatural for her as keeping her pet bird from its natural environment. While none of the adults seems particularly convincing, the characterizations of their children are complex. Through them the author sends a heartfelt message concerning limitations, restrictions and the universal longing to be free. Ages 9-12.
