To celebrate the release of bestselling international crime writer Arne Dahl’s new thriller WATCHING YOU – the first instalment in a new rocket-paced series featuring a brand new crime team, led by Detective Sam Berger – Arne invited a few folks to ask him some questions about his writing and then recorded his answers on camera.

WATCHING YOU by Arne Dahl is out now. Here’s the blurb: “Elen Savinger has been missing for three weeks. At each abandoned crime scene linking to the case Detective Sam Berger finds a hidden clue: a tiny metal cog, almost invisible to the naked eye. Someone is sending Sam a message, someone who knows that only he will understand the cryptic trail. When another teenaged girl disappears without trace, Sam must convince his superiors that they’re dealing with a serial killer. As the police continue the hunt to find the latest victim, Sam is forced to unearth long-buried personal demons. He has no choice if he is to understand the killer’s darkly personal message before time runs out. Somebody is killing just for him.”
