A breath-taking thriller with twists you’ll never see coming. The start of a new series from international bestseller Arne Dahl.

SOMEONE IS WATCHING...

At each abandoned crime scene there's a hidden clue: a tiny metal cog, almost invisible to the naked eye. Someone is sending Detective Sam Berger a message, someone who knows that only he will understand the cryptic trail.

SOMEONE KNOWS...
When another teenaged girl disappears without trace, Sam must convince his superiors that they’re dealing with a serial killer. As the police continue the hunt to find the latest victim, Sam is forced to unearth long-buried personal demons. He has no choice if he is to understand the killer's darkly personal message before time runs out.

SOMEONE IS KILLING JUST FOR HIM...

Praise for WATCHING YOU:
'Thrilling' Ian Rankin

Arne Dahl is possibly the most thoughtful and playful contemporary Nordic crime writer. He also happens to be one of the most thrilling.

Lars Kepler

Without doubt, Arne Dahl is the King of Scandi Noir and does not look like giving up that mantle with a new thriller series. Like all his thrillers his writing has a pace that is breath taking from the first sentence to the last, he has you in a vice like grip. He has such a compelling way of creating characters that just attract attention that intrigue and intelligence. Dahl’s books are both complex and compelling at the same time, the plotlines are well planned, leaving you to wonder how his characters would actually survive in the social democratic PC world that is Sweden… Watching You is a superb introduction to Arne Dahl’s new crime series and you will be gripped from the beginning and wanting the next as soon as you have finished

Paul Diggett, Nudge
