In THE RABBIT HUNTER, Detective Joona Linna and Security Police Officer Saga Bauer team up to investigate brutal killings which, at first glance, appear to be connected to a drug kingpin in Stockholm. Linna’s shrewd intuition, however, quickly unveils a far more sinister truth: a connection linking victims back to an elite boarding school and a sinister secret society. Now, Linna and Bauer must race against the clock to unravel a killer’s brutal scheme before he can take his final revenge.

Ten little rabbits, all dressed in white
Tried to get to heaven on the end of a kite.
Kite string got broken, down they all fell,
Instead of going to heaven, they all went to...
It begins with a nursery rhyme. Nineteen minutes later you die.
A masked stranger stands in the shadows. He watches his victim through the window. He will kill him slowly—make him pay.
Soon the Rabbit Hunter has claimed another three victims. This predator will stop at nothing to reap his ultimate revenge. It’s up to Joona Linna and Saga Bauer to untangle one of the most complex cases of their career, and follow the killer’s trail of destruction back to one horrific night of violence.
