I’M TRAVELING ALONE by Samuel Bjork
A six-year-old girl dressed in doll’s clothes is found lifeless in the countryside wearing an airline tag around her neck reading “I’m Traveling Alone.” This shocking murder prompts police investigator Holger Munch to assemble a special unit for the case, including his protégé, Mia Kruger. Mia is in a self-imposed exile, haunted by memories, but upon viewing photographs of the girl she discovers the number 1 scratched into the girl’s nail. Instinctively feeling there will be more murders, she finds herself sucked back into the violent crimes unit. She soon finds a link between this case and the unsolved abduction of an infant girl six years prior, as well as a mysterious reclusive religious community residing in the woods. Mia leads the team in tracking down a revenge-driven and ruthlessly intelligent killer. But when Munch’s own six-year-old granddaughter goes missing, Mia realizes that the killer’s sinister game is personal, and I’M TRAVELING ALONE races to an explosive—and shocking—conclusion.
