Description:
A video-clip is sent to the National Criminal Investigation Department. Someone has secretly filmed a woman through her window from the garden. The next day she is found dead after a frenzied knife-attack. The police receive a second film of another unknown woman. There is no way of identifying her before time runs out. When her husband finds her he is so traumatised that he cleans the whole house and puts her to bed. He may have seen a vital clue, but is in such an extreme state of shock that the police are unable to question him. Psychiatrist Erik Maria Bark is called in to hypnotise him - but what the man tells him under hypnosis leads Erik to start lying to the police. If the lights are on, a stalker can see you from outside. But if the lights are off, you can't see a stalker who is already inside the house.

‘Stalker’ was able to catch my interest until the very last page but sadly that is the only good thing I can say about the book. My friend told me that this is the 5th book following the detective Joona Linna but I did not feel that I needed to have read the previous books to get the feel of this character. Unfortunately, ‘Stalker’ didn’t do a great job to sell the other books in the series and it is not likely that I will continue the story. The story in the ‘Stalker’ was ok. However, I did not feel the main villain and although it was supposed to be a big plot twist I wish the authors had left some crumbs in the story so I could at least have had some suspicions on the villain which I didn’t at all. To summarise, I think that this would be an enjoyable read if you read the other books in the series, but I wouldn’t recommend starting on this one. It’s a good book if you are looking for something that is easy and quick to read.
