    1. Lars Kepler is the pseudonym of critically acclaimed husband and wife team Alexander Ahndoril and Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril, authors of the No 1 internationally bestselling Joona Linna series With six installments to date, the series has sold twelve million copies in 40 languages The Ahndorils were both established writers before they adopted the pen name Lars Kepler, and have each published several acclaimed novels.

    2. A good thriller with a panting rhythm.The chapters are very short and the writing is dynamic, perfectly rendering the icy atmosphere in which the characters evolve.The story is quite original, however the end leaves some shadowsA good reading time!

    3. 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 PEOPLE CRY?? When I finished the book 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 then LARS KEPLER DECIDED TO GIVE ME AN OPEN FXCKING END???? I wanna cry so hard right nowUpdate: yay on the extra books.

    6. Με μαύρους κύκλους από την αϋπνία και δαγκωμένα χείλια από την αγωνία κλείνω αυτό το βιβλίο και αναρωτιέμαι: ΓΙΑΤΙ;; γιατί αυτό το τέλος;; γιατί αυτές οι τελευταίες τέσσερις γραμμές;;Καταιγιστική δράση από την αρχή μέχρι το τέλος, απίθανη πλοκή, και ένας πολύ ανατριχιαστικός [...]

    7. I was beyond excited when I won this in a giveaway! So, thank you and Knopf Publishing.This book was so creepy good! I mean so fantastically disturbing, spine-chilling, hair raising good! I was white-knuckling the book the whole time. This is the 4th in the series, but at no time did I feel lost or confused. As soon as I was finished, I started looking to see where I could buy, even though I’m on a book buying band, the others in the series. And that ending Oh My Goodness! WTH! That was the [...]

    8. Wow! Now that book was intense! I literally could not put it down (I read all 496 pages in two days) this one would make a great movie. I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next, how were all the disappearances connected, how were people seeing this maniac out and about while he was locked up in the most secure facility in Sweden, were the authorities going to find the victims, where had the boy been kept all these years, was his sister still alive as well? Lots of mysteries in th [...]

    9. “O Homem da Areia” é o quarto livro escrito por Lars Kepler, pseudónimo de uma dupla de escritores suecos (marido e mulher) Alexander Ahndoril e Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril (de origem portuguesa, por parte da mãe que nasceu na Cabeça das Mós, uma pequena aldeia situada perto do Sardoal, a cerca de 10 km a norte de Abrantes).Os dois primeiros livros, “O Hipnotista” (4*) e “O Executor” (3*), eram policiais bem escritos, com uma estrutura narrativa e um suspense de muita qualidade e [...]

    10. 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.Jurek Walter is Sweden's most prolific serial killer, now serving a life sentence in solitary confinement and even now is still considered extremely dangerous by psychiatric staff. One of his victims Mikael knows him as “the sandman” and seven years ago, he was taken from hi [...]

    11. 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! :)

    12. Meni osobno ova je najbolja do sada. Čitala sam ju brzinom svjetlosti :))) Odlična! a skoro sam odustala od Keplera nakon ''Paganinijevog ugovora'' jer mi se nije baš sviđao. Sad ću se vratiti trećem dijelu ''Svjedok vatre''.

    13. 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 d [...]

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

    15. The Sandman kept me up reading into the night - I definitely meant to go to bed at a reasonable time last night, but I couldn't put this book down. This was my first experience with the Joona Linna series by Lars Kepler - this is the third book in the series, and it's very easy to get invested quickly. I wasn't confused, and I think this book can work very well as a standalone novel. However, since I loved it, I ordered the first 3 books in the series after I finished this one. I am not always g [...]

    16. 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 [...]

    17. 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 of [...]

    18. Le doy un 4.5Este 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 [...]

    19. Seria mais justo as 4,5*, recai para as 5 porque me manteve sempre interessada. É o meu segundo livro da dupla Lars Kepler e fico ainda com mais vontade de continuar a ler os livros deles. A início não gostei da personagem Saga, mas foi-me conquistando. Jonna é um personagem fantástico, adoro!A trama está muito bem construída e acaba tudo bem explicado.Gostei mesmo muito.

    20. 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 [...]

    21. "Noćna mora", L. Kepler (tj. bračni par Ahnodril) Dakle, Ahnodrili pišu sve bolje i bolje Obično se autori "kvare"Ono, napišu neki hit i onda su sljedeće knjige komercijalizirane, lošije Naravno ne svi I sigurno ne Kepleri Naime, oduševio me Svjedok vatre, a isto tako i Noćna mora Jona Linna opet u akciji i opet triler koji se teško odlaže Ja zaista, iskreno jedva čekam sljedeći uradak autora!! Jer, ako nastave ovim ritmom, čeka nas još puno izvrsnih djela

    22. Find more in Chill and readA first class thriller!A wounded young man is walking in a far away railroad in the middle of the night. He has just escaped from a place he has been held captive for thirteen years. He was abducted, along with his younger sister when they were children. The have disappeared in the darkness and the authorities thought them to be dead. They all did. All, but police inspector Joona Linna.Several years ago, Joona and a colleague arrested a man red handed. He was a psychop [...]

    23. 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 su [...]

    24. 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 [...]

    25. «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, q [...]

    26. 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 [...]

    27. 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.

    28. Que final Brutal! Para mim este e "A Vidente" são os melhores livros da dupla. Mas há qualquer coisa que falta e não me faz dar a pontuação máxima. Não me prende a 100%.Recomendo!
