Evil Water by Inger Wolf

Two women disappear without a trace, and the same autumn a farmer on the outskirts of Århus finds them murdered in suitcases under a heap of stone. The skin of one woman is filled with the letter Y and the other has a rare flower in her hair. Inspector Daniel Trokic is leading the case which goes in several directions: to a tribal population in Africa, religious insanity and a horrifying meeting with leeches. When a third woman disappears, Trokic is under pressure to find out what the killer wants to say with his macabre scenery and rituals.

Just by the cover and the description, I knew that Evil Water was going to be a spine-tingler.  But, I wasn't sure if it that was just to grab my attention, or if it would be carried out through-out the book.  I was surprised at how many times I had goosebumps, chills running up my spine and how many times I jumped at the shadows.

Evil Water doesn't hold anything back.  Wolf is very blatant about the details of the horror these victims went through.  It gives the investigation a grave and urgent air that really grounded me and had me invested in just a few pages.  Of course, I tried to figure out who the killer was, but just when I thought I had it all figured out, Wolf would toss another clue or suspect in that had me questioning my choices.

If you enjoy psychological thrillers that twists, turns and will chill your bones, pick up Evil Water! The characters are intriguing but the plot is riveting!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
