"The thrilling follow-up to Samuel Bjørk's internationally bestselling I'm Traveling Alone, which The Wall Street Journal calls "tense and smartly constructed." When a troubled teenager disappears from an orphanage and is found murdered, her body arranged on a bed of feathers, veteran investigator Holger Munch and his team are called into the case. Star investigator Mia Kruger, on temporary leave while she continues to struggle with her own demons, jumps back on the team and dives headfirst into this case: just in time to decode the clues in a disturbing video of the victim before she was killed, being held prisoner like an animal in a cage. Meanwhile, Munch's daughter, Miriam, meets an enticing stranger at a party -- a passionate animal rights activist who begins to draw her into his world and away from her family. Munch, Kruger, and the team must hunt down the killer before he can strike again in this sophisticated, intricately plotted psychological thriller by the newest phenomenon in international crime fiction"-- Provided by publisher.

I have to mostly agree with emerge as written below. There is a bit to much self-exploration going on in this one. After reading his first book, I was hoping to say that Bjork is in the league with Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo but I can't do that quite yet. While the story is good, I hope he finds a new path to take in his next book, if there is one. As in book 1, someone close to the main character is heavily involved as a victim. Oslo is a major city in the world so I think having made that happen 2 times is enough. And, after 2 books, we get that Mia misses her sister. Maybe in #3, she will be back at work and not have to be begged to come help. This was not necessarily a disappointment, and I will read a #3 if there is one, but it was not what I hoped it would be. On a side note, there is a mini-series playing as I write this on WGN, called "100 Code". It is set in Sweden and an owl is also associated with the bad guy! What's up with owls and Scandinavian's?

Not as good as the first book in the series. Waaaay too much time spent on the characters' personal dramas. Crimes are intriguing but the hunt for the killer gets bogged down & lucky coincidences play a major role in finally getting their man.
