Currently reading Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (don’t tell me how it ends) and I hit up on the section where there’s a possible unearthed serial killer in their midst, spanning decades. It got me thinking of the likelihood of a serial killer in our midst, unearthed – we certainly have enough unsolved murders, even or especially for a small island nation where hiding should be impossible. That got me thinking of patterns in past crimes, signatures that maybe we didn’t pick up on that connect one crime to another – as seems to be the case in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (I said, don’t tell me how it ends). What would it take for a person to remain hidden and move among us faking normalcy, and what if a young (Nancy Drew/Trixie Belden/Hardy Boys esque) island youth stumbled upon the pattern and began to dig at the mystery. What if?
