In 1992, in a psychiatric hospital, Thomas Quick confessed to the murder of a missing eleven-year-old boy. Over the next nine years, Quick confessed to more than thirty unsolved murders.
Hannes Råstam, an investigative journalist, became obsessed with Quick's case and studied the investigations in forensic detail. In 2008, Råstam met Thomas Quick in prison, with one question to ask. And the answer turned out to be far more terrifying than the man himself…
Hannes Råstam was an award-winning investigative journalist in Sweden. After a struggle with cancer, Råstam passed away while finishing this book, his account of the largest judicial scandal in Scandianvian history.
”Sweden's most suspenseful murder mystery may not be a fictional account from Stieg Larsson or Henning Mankell. It may end up being the true story of Thomas Quick.” (The Wall Street Journal)

Superb true crime I'd never heard about!
The story, fascinating true story about how the media, the public and the courts were all fooled into thinking a troubled liar was a serial killer of huge proportions.
How well the evidence was compiled and presented, and how it was not a story I knew anything about!
I haven't but I would again.
The true story of the serial killer that never was...
Highly recommend to any true crime lovers, or anyone interested in a superb journalists investigation into the truth behind this supposed serial killer.
