A year ago, Elias Ferreira Krantz lived the life of a normal 24-year-old. Now he’s the Prophet, a secret agent hellbent on avenging the murder of his father. His target: untouchable corporate kingpin Eric Hands. French intelligence offers him an opportunity for confrontation. But blood is on the hands of more parties than he ever imagined. And in this ever twisting search he again crosses paths with Ylva Grey.

The Prophet’s mission is clear as Swedish snow. And the stakes are sky high. Everyone he is close to risks annihilation.

In this remarkable sequel to The Winter of the Prophet, and The False Prophet, Östlundh concludes his compelling, internationally lauded, Prophet Trilogy. The result is three impressively conceived, high tension page-turners.

“The plot is very imaginative. The question is whether anyone other than Håkan Östlundh would have gotten away with it. But he is such a skilled writer that what he presents is swallowed hook, line, and sinker. It’s extremely exciting. The book contains several colorful characters, and they are convincingly portrayed. The environments are more to be seen as backdrops to the countless nerve-wracking scenes that are painted.”

”an extremely exciting well-written story that contains everything a thriller should have, including a credible ending. I must admit that I usually have a bit of a hard time with action-packed stories, but the Prophet trilogy is in a class of its own […] This is one of the year’s best thrillers”
