Kate’s 2¢: “The Chestnut Man” by Søren Sveistrup

“The Chestnut Man” by Søren Sveistrup

Kate’s 2¢: There is a plethora of in-depth biographies of authors and reviews of their books, that state the title, author, published date, and genre; as well as,     describing what the book is about, setting, and character(s), so, Kate’s 2¢ merely shares my thoughts about what I read.  I’m just saying…


The prologue is supposed to lure you into the story; to start you salivating to read more. This prologue does the trick and from then on, the web of mystery is woven in and out of red herrings until the prologue makes perfect sense.

Being a romantic, I’m hoping that Hess returnes to marry the lead dectective to unite her daughter and the orphaned boy. Well, there’s a lead-in to the sequel.
