These ‘involuntarily celibate’ men have fostered hatred towards the women who turn them down, and now women are turning up dead. But can Vanessa prove the connection, and is she ready to risk her life to do so?
‘Femicide’ is a heart-pounding scandi-noir from the Swedish writer Pascal Engman, that scours the dark side of the internet in a thriller that feels all too real.
For fans of Jo Nesbo or Stieg Larsson, this is an absolute must-read from the next generation of crime writing.
