Crime Inspector Joona Linna Joona Linna: Sweden's answer to James BondHe is the tall, silent, Finnish-Swedish man with the gray eyes. He sees and records everything. His name is Joona Linna and he is the Chief Inspector at the National Police in Stockholm, and the main character in Lars Kepler's three books: The Hypnotist, The Paganini Contract and The Fire Witness. One of the most proficient police investigators, Joona Linna is tenacious, fearless and strong. But he is also someone with a painful past, constantly driving him to seek justice in cases that reflect his own major trauma, especially where families are involved. Although a highly-respected and professional police officer, Joona Linna is not afraid to use unconventional methods to solve crimes. In Kepler's latest book, The Fire Witness, he enlists the help of a medium to further understand the truth behind the brutal killings. In order to catch the killer, Joona Linna studies the crime scene for long hours until he is able to think like the killer and adopt their patterns. Once the murder begins to “open like a book” for Joona, he is on the verge of not only revealing how the crime was committed, but also how that reflects the murderer’s inner drama.
