The Alphabet Murders by Lars Schütz – Book Review




Criminal profilers Jan Grall and Rabea Wyler are assigned the gruesome case of a man found murdered in a wildlife park. Later, two more bodies are found, both brutally mutilated, and authorities soon realise that the victims are linked by the letters of the alphabet tattooed on their skin. 

Then the killer strikes again and Grall and Wyler receive a mysterious package containing a blood-encrusted scrap of skin marked with a letter. And when Grall’s hotel room is marked with a Z, the race is on to find out who this vicious killer is. Before it’s too late . . . 

A tense and exciting serial killer thriller by debut author, Lars Schutz.



This starts with someone being tortured with a tattoo gun….and then the story really begins with the finding of two bodies, both gruesome deaths and they have been tattooed …one with an A, the other a B…..then a 3rd is found …disembowelled and tattooed with a C…..

All the murders have been committed in such a short time …clearly planned, but what and who links them all?

Jan Grall and his assistant, Rabea Wyler begin their investigation, as profilers can they discover the killer’s identity and stop any more deaths?

With believable, likeable characters that have their own personal issues and with a twisty, gruesome plot this is a dark, gripping and utterly compelling thriller. It’s hard to believe this is Lars Schütz debut, I will certainly be looking out for more by this author.
