The Disciple opens with psychologist and criminal profiler Sebastian Bergman doing everything he can to bring some order into his chaotic life. Having tried to find his daughter for many years, he's at last learned her identity - and she happens to be Vanya, a respected colleague of his. Though Sebastian longs to tell Vanya that he's her biological father, he also understands it may complicate her life given she already has a 'dad', whom she loves. At the same time, Sebastian's old team in the National Crime Squad - including Vanya - is investigating a series of brutal murders of women. The murders remind Sebastian of Edward Hinde, a convicted serial killer he put behind bars many years ago.

Sebastian manages to convince Torkel, his old boss and teamleader, to let him have a close look at the investigation. He comes to the unsettling conclusion that all the victims are connected to him - and that Vanya might be in imminent danger.… (more)

"De copycat speelt een kat-en muisspel met de politie, maar wie van de twee trekt aan het langste eind?"

Sein Gegner ist ihm ebenbürtig.

Wieder wurde in Stockholm eine Frau ermordet, sie ist bereits das dritte Opfer. Die Handschrift der Taten deutet auf einen berüchtigten Serienmörder: Edward Hinde, manipulativ, grausam, hochintelligent. Doch Hinde sitzt seit Jahren im Hochsicherheitstrakt.
Daher holt Kommissar Höglung jenen Mann ins Team, der Hinde einst hinter Gitter brachte - Kriminalpsychologe Sebastian Bergmann. Für den Kommissar und sein Team ist der arrogante Einzelgänger eine Zumutung, für Bergmann der Fall ein Albtraum: Denn der Name des vierten Opfers ist ihm nicht unbekannt.

En rad brutala kvinnomord begås i Stockholmstrakten. Riksmordkommissionen med Torkel Höglund i spetsen kommer ingenvart. 
Morden påminner in i minsta detalj om de dåd som utfördes av Edward Hinde, en seriemördare som Sebastian Bergman Satte bakom lås och bom för femton år sedan. Där sitter har ännu.
Sebastian Bergman har egentligen lämnat polisen, men han tvingar sig in i utredningen. Snart upptäcker han att morden hänger ihop på ett sätt han aldrig kunnat föreställa sig.
