Details: nr. 3 Jan Fabel mystery
Jan Fabel is only just back from a short break when the first victim is found, murdered and scalped. Within 24 hours a second victim is found, also scalped. Apart from the fact that they were both male, roughly the same age and died under similar circumstances, there appears to be no connection between the victims.
And the murderer leaves no forensic evidence at all, apart from a single red hair, deliberately left behind meant to be found.
As more murders and scalpings take place, Jan Fabel and his team uncover a link between them, connecting all the victims to a former terrorist group.
It appears that somebody is out to kill all the members of that group in an act of revenge.
As they get closer to understanding what might be going on, the killer starts to communicate with and target Fabel, who starts to question his career with the Hamburg Murder Squad.
But he knows that before he does anything else, he has to find this murderer. A murderer who is convinced that he has lived before, can remember his past lives and has to get his revenge on those who killed him.
Great mystery with a conclusion that took me by surprise, which is always a good thing.
I just wished I knew whether or not Fabel actually resigns or not. If only because I couldn't bear this being the last in the series.
