The Postcard Killers by James Patterson & Liza Marklund (♦♦♦)

I liked this book, though I was exhausted after I finished it, probably because it is a very easy read and I wanted to know how it ended. It could have been better though…It had a great premise, but it lacked something, though I don’t know what.

In many of Europe’s most important capitals there have been gruesome murders, resembling famous works of art, preceded by postcards sent to relatively unknown journalists in every one of those cities. The suspects are a handsome young man and a beautiful woman. They are likeable, well-off and easily seduce their victims, always young couples on their honeymoon trips. Jacob Kanon, an American detective travels to Europe in search for the killers. He has a very personal interest in their capture, but when Swedish authorities set the suspects free, Jacob will stop at nothing to find them and bring them to justice.
