I so wanted to like this book more. The description was intriguing…the cover was eye-catching...it was the authors first book. How exciting that must be for a new author to see your "baby' in print? The story wasn’t all bad....but lacked way too much "good". It did start off with promise although a little slow...but it soon just turned “outlandish”, for lack of a better word. The characters were bland and really, truly unlikable… even the ones that had the honor of being the “main characters” …the ones the reader is supposed to care about and root for. On top of that we were presented with too many plot lines….a really unnecessary sex scene when the son was kidnapped…and too much jumping around with confusing flashbacks. The book was written in 2018...I know that my not caring for this book and only giving it 2.5 stars...(the .5 was given out of my sense of remorse for the author)…certainly didn’t cause Mr. Kepler to crawl off and hide his head under the covers and never write another book…so I will search out another from a later year before giving it up.

Erik Maria Bark has sworn never to hypnotize anyone again. But when a young boy is the only survivor from a deadly attack to his family, where his father, mother and little sister have been murdered and his other sister is at risk, he has to think again. Bark is now specialized in working with victims under pain and he is requested to act drastically so as the boy that is under shock is able to give the police details of the attack. He doesn’t want to perform hypnosis again, but he understands that a girl’s life is at risk and their only hope to help her is to practice what he promised not to. Detective Inspector Joona Linna is counting on his help to protect the girl.

Joona Linna is a Detective Inspector that is never wrong. So when he founds out about a coach that is found murdered in the lockers and later on, almost all his family is murdered as well, he knows that the killing has not stopped. He needs to find what happened. He needs the right person for the job and therefore calls for Erik Maria Bark. Once Bark does as he is asked, things start to take a dramatic effect, as Bark is threatened and his own son goes missing. Joona says they are going to find Erik’s son and he is never wrong.

This is the first installment in the Joona Linna series. The book is written that way, that the reader get’s to know Joona Linna, but not too deep. He is the one calling the shots, but he is not the real protagonist throughout the book. When he hears about the murder in the locker room, he calls local police and makes himself part of the investigation. At a glance, he can tell that this does not end there. When the local police finds the family slaughtered and the son still alive, he is more than certain that the father was the first victim and it means that more will follow, as the eldest daughter in the family was not found within the victims. He turns to be right as forensics move on with their investigation and he takes over the case. Joona Linna is still the protagonist up to this point and up to the point he persuades Bark to practice hypnosis again. Then it all goes around Bark.

The focus of the story changes and moves around the doctor and his family. It is very important to note that when we meet Bark he is sleeping and he founds sleep via the help of pills. This is a very important part of the plot, as it shows home much Bark has suppressed his mind and that is also why he cannot bring forward all the memories from the past. He doesn’t want to remember anything from the time he was researching the benefits of hypnosis on people under stress and pain. As we later learn, it was a very traumatic period in his life, which has turned everything upside down.

However when his son is kidnapped, he is forced by Joona Linna to think over his past and find out who might wanted to harm him. This is when the memories flow, for several pages, and they are so revealing. Erik Maria Bark had a very good reason to have stopped practicing hypnosis. He has convinced himself that he was wrong. That all his work has been harmful and that he should never do it again. And that, along with the incidents of those days, were enough to make him want to bury that part of his life deep down in his mind and never to think of it again. This is the part of the book that Bark is taking the leading role while Linna is has some highlights that really add to the story and the investigation itself. ( )

Tien jaar geleden heeft hij gezworen nooit meer iemand onder hypnose te brengen. Maar als inspecteur Joona Linna hem vraagt haar te assisteren bij een moordzaak waarbij de levens van een jongen en zijn zus op het spel staan, heeft Erik geen andere keuze. Hij doet wat hij heeft afgezworen en brengt de patiënt onder hypnose. Maar al snel wordt duidelijk dat Erik de prijs moet betalen voor zijn verbroken belofte. De deuren naar de hel lijken geopend en Erik wordt getroffen door een serie gewelddadige en onverklaarbare gebeurtenissen.

Well written, kept me up late to find out what would happen and then later because the villains creeped me out. But I didn't love any of the characters, particularly the main ones. I've seen a lot of comparisons to [b:The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo|2429135|The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)|Stieg Larsson|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1293975922s/2429135.jpg|1708725] series, some because of the setting others because of the violence. This story was really unsettling, so I understand those comparisons, but I much preferred Lisbeth's story. Probably because I liked her character. I got invested in her story, and I definitely liked some of the supporting characters almost as much. This book was just depressing and violent. The ending wasn't totally bleak, but I prefer crime stories with a better end for their villains. Or a better end for their heroes. This story didn't satisfy me on either front. ( )

Linna and Bark make a great crime-solving pair precisely because they puzzle each other so thoroughly—says Bark, for instance, “The patient always speaks the truth under hypnosis. But it’s only a matter of what he himself perceives as the truth.” To which Linna responds, “What is it you’re trying to say?” Indeed. What Bark is trying to say is that there are monsters hiding everywhere beneath the reasonable and rational, and Kepler’s book makes for a satisfying and scary testimonial.

Med kort tids mellomrom blir en far, hans kone og datter funnet brutalt myrdet på to ulike åsteder. Sønnen er så vidt i live. Noen har åpenbart ønsket å utslette hele familien. Da politimannen Jonna Linna innser at det finnes enda et gjenlevende familiemedlem, en søster, forstår han viktigheten av å finne henne før morderen gjør det. For å kunne avhøre sønnen tar Joona Linna kontakt med legen Erik Maria Bark. Han overtales til å hypnotisere gutten. Dermed bryter Bark et gammelt løfte om aldri mer å praktisere hypnose, og en skremmende kjede av hendelser settes i gang.Hypnotisøren er første bok i en ny serie, og den har gjort stor suksess i Sverige.
