Signe has left London and moved home to live with her cousin Elsa in Sweden. One day, they find a man lying unconscious in the forest. He’s covered in blood and they call for an ambulance. Suddenly, the man wakes up! He grabs Elsa’s jacket and pulls her right up close to him. “The animal,” he says with terror in his voice. Signe and Elsa soon find themselves dragged into a new mysterious case with an unexpected twist.
The Animal, the third stand-alone book about Signe Holm offers plenty of excitement and can be regarded as a kind of children’s version of Sherlock Holmes. Petter Lidbeck’s crime series offers both drama and suspense with utterly captivating character portrayals.
