First in the series about behaviorist Alex King. In this thriller series we meet a new hero whose special ability to read others will help him and the police to solve and also prevent crime. Alex King can foresee what a person he makes a profile on is intending to do. He can quickly see who he is dealing with, and he will without mercy reveal a character’s dark motives when he feels it is time to do so.


In ”The Illusion” in a week, two businessmen are shot in Stockholm. Both were the subject of serious blackmail, before a cold–blooded, public execution. Alex King is summoned as a witness, and soon becomes involved in the investigation. Working close to Detective Investigator Nina Mander, he tries to fit the pieces together.
