More About The Killing III by David Hewson
A third excellent season-long novelization of the original Danish series "The Killing"Detective Inspector for Homicide Sarah Lund is contacted by old flame Mathias Borch from National Intelligence. Borch fears that what first appeared to be a random killing at the docks is the beginning of an assassination attempt on Prime Minister Troels Hartmann. The murder draws attention towards the shipping and oil giant, Zeeland, run by billionaire Robert Zeuthen. When Zeuthen's nine-year-old daughter, Emilie, is kidnapped the investigation takes on a different dimension as it soon becomes clear that her disappearance is linked to the murder of a young girl in Jutland some years earlier. Hartmann is in the middle of an election campaign, made all the more turbulent because of the mounting financial crisis. He needs Zeeland's backing. Lund needs to make sense of the clues left by Emilie's perpetrator before it's too late. And can she finally face the demons that have long haunted her?

Hewson’s third novelization of the Danish TV series (after The Killing II) will appeal mainly to viewers of that series. Soon after Emilie, the nine-year-old daughter of Robert Zeuthen, the managing owner of a shipping conglomerate, disappears into the forest surrounding the family estate, a masked figure appears on Emilie’s phone, which the police find in the girl’s rucksack, and speaks vaguely of debts owed. Meanwhile, Det. Sarah Lund suspects that the murder of two men aboard a ship may be related to an assassination threat to Prime Minister Troels Hartmann, which brings in Mathias Borch of PET, the national security intelligence agency, who thinks Zeuthen may be the real target. Hewson tracks the political maneuvering between Hartmann and his opponents in great detail. He does the same with the clash between the aims of PET and Lund’s investigation aimed at saving Emilie. Readers unfamiliar with the large cast of characters may feel lost. (Sept.)
