really liked it

This is a wonderful thriller - reminds me of the writing of Stieg Larsson.
Enter the world where the layers between a taken, caged girl may not be the victim, where people are being killed through a painful death of acid eating away their jaw and innards, where the lead detective has returned from a stay at the asylum due to the kidnapping and death of his wife. Time is ticking away in Paris and the dots are not connecting fast enough as the bodies are being found and the mystery deepens.
I could not put this book down. It is a translation, but there is nothing that does not flow easily through the story. I was on the edge of my seat a few times and stayed up wanting to reach the wonderful end. I highly recommend for personal enjoyment and book clubs - there is plenty to discuss here.
