Stalker – Review

Stalker - Lars Kepler
Stalker – Lars Kepler

Have been away for the longest time buried in this book called Stalker. I cannot emphasize enough about how creepy this book is! So far, the creepiest novel I have ever read!

If you search the meaning of the word stalker, it shows “a person who harasses or persecutes someone with unwanted and obsessive attention.” Well! Sometimes this obsession can lead to serious crimes. A person can go to any extent without realizing what’s wrong. There is no black and white, just gray.

The thing about serial killer stories for me is, they pull me like a magnet. That eerie feeling while reading about their hunts and kills gives me a spine-chilling experience. Most of all, I enjoy the part where the victim fights back and pulls free. That spirit of challenging oneself and realizing inner abilities and strength makes me awestruck.

Stalker will be unputdownable. This book grips you right from the start. A crazy stalker, stalking on preys and going about killing them ruthlessly. This killer follows a certain  pattern. But will it be too late for the detective squad who is trying to solve the case before the killer strikes again? When will this stop? What does the killer want?

It’s the fifth book of the Joona Linna series but there is nothing you would miss from the previous books in case you decide to read this book independently. All you need to know is Joona Linna is an amazing police officer.

I was constantly on the edge of my seat or trying to read with teary eyes late at night. And even though I would be way too tired, I could not keep my hands of my kindle. The story moves at a consistent pace for me. Except for a few times when things become really slow. Later I realized that this was necessary for the story to come together so it was all worth it.

I would recommend this book for those who are looking for an adrenaline-rushing experience. Read this book and try not to look out your window. Brownie points for guessing who the killer is!

RATING: 4.5/5
