Que policial tão bom! A dupla Lars Kepler excedeu-se neste livro e construiu uma história cheia de suspense e ação ao mesmo tempo. Ótimo enredo e, para quem já segue a série, com um aprofundamento na vida pessoal de alguns protagonistas.

O melhor dos quatro livros!

Conselho: comecem a ler com tempo, porque uma vez que comecem, não vão querer mais larga-lo! :)

Is this a joke? Does the Joona Liana series really ends like this?? HOW CAN YOU END A BOOK SERIES WITH AN OPEN END. ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE KILL THEMSELVES???? WANNA MAKE PEOPLE CRY?? When I was already done I thought: "Oh i'll write a review about how sad I am that the series are over and that i'm gonna miss Joona Linna and the beautiful Saga." and blabla.. and then LARS KEPLER DECIDED TO GIVE ME AN OPEN FXCKING END???? I wanna cry so hard right now...........

Tão bom! Talvez o melhor de todos.
E agora??? Este último parágrafo deixa outra vez tudo em aberto. Lol

Tot de laatste pagina blijf je bijna op het puntje van je stoel zitten om de ontknoping te beleven. Het eindestuk kent namelijk een flinke stijging van de spanning. Het slot is erg verrassend en laat een goede ingang voor het vijfde deel achter. Erg goed!

Het boek heeft wel iets weg van de zinderende thriller ‘Silence of the Lambs’, maar zeker ook van het verhaal van ‘De Souffleur’. Beide staan voor mij hoog op de ranking, vandaar dat ik dit boek ook erg goed vond. Koop dat kaartje voor die haast

Tendo como cenário principal um hospital psiquiátrico, O Homem da Areia é um thriller sombrio, psicológico, na busca de respostas sobre um rapto de há mais de sete anos. A chave só poderá estar em Jurek Walter, um psicopata e um dos assassinos em série mais temidos do mundo, que muito se assemelha a Hannibal Lecter pela sua inteligência e pela sua carga psicológica.

Tal como Hannibal, também Jurek se encontra num ala psiquiátrica. No entanto, este encontra-se sozinho, isolado, apenas vigiado por

Para começar tenho de admitir o óbvio, sou fã absoluta desta dupla de autores suecos, com sabor português. Desde o 1º livro que me encantei com a argucia e inteligência do inspector Joona Linna e de livro para livro, só melhoram sendo este volume verdadeiramente viciante e de leitura compulsiva. Desde o Hipnotista até ao Homem de Areia mantém-se uma coerência extraordinária na construção das histórias, a narrativa das mesmas, os detalhes na forma como o nosso inspector chega às suas conclusões e ...more

Le doy un 4.5

Este libro fue increíble, creo que esa es la única que puedo decir sobre este libro, porque fue totalmente increíble.

Mikael Kohler-Frost junto a su hermana Felicia, han desparecido por muchos años, se culpo a Jurke Walter por varios homicidios, pero cuando encuentran a Mikael en unas vías del tren, Joona y su equipo retoman el caso.

Desde el inicio del libro hasta el final todo es increíble, además de que tiene un buen pedazo de intriga, llama la atención todo lo que pasa al rededor

Na minha opinião este é, até agora, o melhor volume da série. O suspense é muito bem gerido, a narrativa é rápida, a história cheia de desenvolvimentos e reviravoltas, mas sempre bem construída e coerente. E, literalmente, termina na última linha... deixando tudo em aberto.

«Não tenho medo de monstros. Mas tenho juízo suficiente para ter medo do Jurek Walter.»

Agora é pessoal - Jurek Walker custou a Joona Linna aquilo que ele mais amava na vida. Detido há 13 anos em regime psiquiátrico, Jurek não pode estar - de forma alguma - sozinho com um membro do pessoal, está interdito de ir ao jardim e não pode receber visitas; é, muito resumidamente, «o pior assassino em série de toda a história sueca»… E é por isso mesmo que quando uma das suas vítimas, que se julgava morta

Book 3 hinted where this one was going....I really don't know how those reading them in real time have coped waiting between publication dates.
I was able to just drive in and immerse myself into the world of Joona Linna again, this is a Sweden we haven't really met since we lost the writing of Stieg Larsson. Lars Kepler is a combined effort of two authors and their powers are brilliantly honed in this their fourth published novel - The Sandman.
In Jurek Walter we have a calculating villian worthy

I am finally beginning to warm up toward this series. By now I am familiar with the repeating characters, particularly detective inspector Joona Linna. Since I've learned about the tragedy in his life, I've started to root for him. This makes the story more personal and makes me far more invested in events than I have been before.

Joona Linna has attachment issues. This stems from the time when he sent his wife and daughter away, pretending they died in a car accident, to save them from a brutal

(Source: I received a paperback ARC of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins.)

This was an interesting crime novel, but I did find the pace a little slow.

Joona was an interesting character, and it seemed like he had really quite drastically changed his life because of the serial killer known as ‘The Sandman’. The Sandman himself was a really creepy guy, and he certainly did seem to have an air of the paranormal, as well as the sociopath about him.

The storyline in t

Mein erstes Buch von Lars Kepler und schon bin ich infiziert. Es sind mal wieder die Schweden, die es mit hoher Sicherheit schaffen, Gänsehaut zu produzieren und den Leser atemlos lesen zu lassen. Obwohl ich die Vorgängerfälle des Joona Linna nicht kannte, fand ich mich sehr schnell in der Geschichte zurecht. Die Figuren sind so gut beschreiben und dargestellt, dass man sich ohne Probleme ein Bild schaffen kann. Die Spannung ist ab den ersten Seiten vorhanden und endet erst mit der letzten Seite ...more

Kepler has waited until the fourth book to pen what many Joona Linna fans have long waited for; a case that flashes back into his past. Linna stumbled across Jurek Walter one night, standing over a recently opened grave and staring down at a woman. All this is summarised in THE FIRE WITNESS and its closing chapters. When one of Walter's supposed victim's is found wandering along a train track, the hopes that others can be found raises hope. With Walter incarcerated in a psychiatric prison, Linna ...more

Tengo una palabra para este libro: espectacular.

Te mantiene intrigado al cien y aparte de eso, te va dando pequeñas piezas de un puzzle que luego vas a tener la fortuna de juntar, de esa manera indiscutiblemente sientes que eres parte de la historia y no sólo un lector.
Tiene muchas virtudes la forma en que te lo cuentan, es ágil, puntual y verdaderamente inteligente a la hora de unir hechos del pasado que tienen muchísima relevancia, con los del presente.

Esta novela presenta una trama dura, emotiva, trepidante, con tensión de principio a fin, revelaciones sorprendentes sobre el pasado de los protagonistas y giros en el argumento que mantienen el suspense hasta el final.

I saw this book a couple of months ago and immediately recommended it to my mother, who had a great deal of pleasure reading it in a couple of days. Now that I have come to the end of it, I am not sure whether I should be sad to read this novel first, despite it having three older books in the Joona series. But I must admit, it was a more then pleasant read!
I totally understand the frustration of other readers about the end of the book (no spoilers from me!). But besides that little negative, we

I was looking forward to this one for about a year, the problem with these books is, you have to hope that they will be translated fairly quickly. So, when I managed to get my little mits on it at long last this week, I could not wait to get reading, especially since there was a teaser at the end of the last one about what was to come. I stayed up really late two nights ago, as it got to that stage where you need to know what happens next. It was gripping, edge of the bed stuff (I was reading it ...more

AUDIOBOOK

This book did not disappoint, but as in all LK's storylines, the action/thrills keep escalating to an almost eye-rolling climax.

This is certainly a dark book, the crimes are as always grotesque.

There are several stories running through this book, Joona is caught up in an old case that has re-surfaced when a teenage boy is found wandering along the railway tracks. This boy had disappeared along with his sister 15 years ago. Joona starts to remember how the disappearance of these two chi

Lämnar inget åt fantasin. Det händer inte mycket och det som händer repeteras. En del kapitel är uppsamlingsheat för dem som mot förmodan missat en tråd, eller kanske sovit sig genom ett kapitel. Lästempot blir högt med korta kapitel och ingenting att fundera på. I en epilog förklaras allt som författarna inte lyckades skriva in i historien men som behövdes som motiv för hela historien.

Wat een absolute pageturner was dit weer. Ik heb weer genoten van het boek, niets is was het lijkt en de spanning is continu aanwezig. Joona Linna krijgt het weer voor zijn kiezen en is fantastisch. Kom maar op met het volgende boek.

Herr Kepler hat wieder einmal einen Thriller geschrieben. Einen recht packenden, rasanten, aufregenden und an manchen Stellen auch gruseligen Thriller. Alle Zutaten die man für einen ebensolchen braucht, wie z.Bsp.:

- einen überlegenen Psychokiller
- einen überlegenen Superpolizisten
- eine überlegene Kollegin des Superpolizisten
- eine inkompetente Psychiatrie
- schlechtes Wetter und einen Containerhafen
- ...

sind vorhanden. Und sehr viel Zufall, Glück und Karma muss natürlich auch dabei sein.

Oh suck! I den föregående boken hade författarna pippi på hjärtor som bultade på de mest fantasifulla sätt. I denna är det ögonens färger som skiftar i s.g.s. varje stycke.

Talvez seja um caso típico de "não és tu, sou eu". Ou seja, o problema talvez não seja do livro, mas da leitora... li os restantes livros, gostei, mas este teve 'n' coisas a darem-me cabo dos nervos.
Desde os capítulos muito curtos (geralmente não vejo nada de mal aí) mas com frases completamente telegráficas, a um Jurek que me pareceu tão estranho e pouco plausível, ao modo como a história parecia fazer apenas um sentido relativo e ficava muita coisa por explicar pelo caminho.

love a good thriller, one that captures you from the opening lines....The Sandman, the newest North American release from Lars Kepler, had me hooked....

"His bloody hand has started to freeze as he carries on walking. His name is Mikael Kohler-Frost. He has been missing for thirteen years, and was declared dead seven years ago."

And only a few pages later..."Even though Jurek Walter is Sweden's worst-ever serial killer, he is completely unknown to the public."

But he is known to Detective Inspec

Forfatterduoen "Lars Keplers" fjerde roman om den finsk-svenske politimannen Joona Linna. Dette er den beste av bøkene hittil, drivende godt fortalt og intens spennende. En absolutt femstjerner til tross for enkelte logiske brister. I mine øyne er den store logiske bristen i sidekarakteren Michael. Han er en mann som forsvant som barn og har vært savnet i 13 år, erklært død i sju. Han dukker opp igjen i live og har tilsynelatende rømt fra et tretten år langt fangenskap. Logikken svikter, igjen i ...more

Sandmannen av Lars Kepler är en bok som tar sig in under skinnet på dig och får dig att känna obehag och se dig om över axeln. Boken följer med dig in i drömmen och lämnar dig inte i fred förrän du har läst ut den, om ens då ;-)

Med den här boken har jag verkligen blivit ett fan av Lars Keplers böcker! Kika in under Kimselius Boktips för att se vad jag har tyckt om de tidigare böckerna av samma författare.

Boken börjar med att en man kommer vandrande på ett järnvägsspår en snöig vinterdag. Det vis

So, this is the fourth Lars Kepler book I have read, and I have loved them all, but I have the same problem every time. When I get to the climax with around 100 pages or so left, the things that happen are so terrifying that I have to read all the way to the end of the book before I can go to sleep. So last night I picked this up at about 8, and had to read all the way through til almost 1030 (past my bedtime). It was worth it, but I really need to stop reading thrillers at bedtime.

Fjärde boken i serien och efter den förra var jag säker på att jag hade hittat min favorit i serien men uppenbarligen kunde det bli bättre. Den här boken går ännu mer på djupet och känslorna rinner igenom mig - förfäran, förväntan, förtjusning, förbluffning, förtvivlan - allt i ett enda underbart virrvarr.
Den här boken etablerar verkligen serie-känslan - de hör ihop och de ska läsas i följd. Karaktärerna fortsätter växa och få djup och än mer av deras bakgrund framkommer på ett sätt som får en k

The 4th book in the Police Inspector Joona Linna series by the excellent writers known as Lars Kepler.
Having read and enjoyed the previous three books in this series I had no hesitation in reading this one and I loved it.
For me this is one of the best books I have read this year.
