'As gripping as the TV series. It will keep you pinned to very last page' Jens Lapidus 'David Hewson has achieved the seemingly impossible ... just as gripping as the television serial ... this book is worth reading' The Literary Review 'A novel in the hugely experienced hands of David Hewson that defies expectation. Hewson's style is tight, lean, almost like a film script' Express 'Clear, clipped prose is beautifully up to the task, as is his forensic attention to the original's details ... And the ending leaves a very different, but no less thought-provoking taste' Mirror 'David Hewson should be commended for writing such a page-turner of a book ... The Killing has enough twists and turns to satisfy not only any avid follower of the series but also readers that are coming to it first time around' www.shotsmag.co.uk
