The Hypnotist – Lars Kepler

In the middle of a dark December night, psychiatrist Erik Maria Bark is woken by a telephone call from a hospital in Stockholm.  Detective Inspector Joona Linna asks for his immediate help in treating an unconscious patient suffering from acute trauma.  He hopes that Erik will be able to communicate with the young boy through hypnosis, enabling the police to question him.  They hope to find out who so brutally murdered his parents and younger sister, in order to track down and save his older sister before it is too late.

But it’s been ten years since Erik last practiced hypnosis, and painful memories from the past made him vow to never do it again, even to aid the police.  Once he’s finally persuaded, the floodgates open and a violent and inexplicable course of events impacts Erik’s life.  When his own son disappears, Erik must face his past, back when his work as a researcher was in ruins and his marriage seemed on the verge of collapsing.
