This is a thriller that takes place in Sweden (and Brazil and Germany and Spain). There are lots of bad guys from lots of different factions. Some are fighting over a cocaine trade route, others are squabbling about an illegal arms shipment and still others are in the blackmail business. A formerly law-abiding nurse is swept up into the middle of it all. It was a fun read, but I found the nurse's behavior unbelievable and the other characters were so numerous that I occasionally got them confused. While this never reached the status of an I-can't-put-it-down novel, I liked it enough that I will read the rest of the trilogy.

    No comparison

    A comparison was made to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series. This book doesn't come close. I read the whole book because I kept waiting for something to bring it to the level of Larson's work. Never got there.

    Just OK.

    This book was disappointing. There wasn't much of a plot. There was so many characters that it was hard to keep track of them all. A list in the front would have been helpful. The main female character, Sophie, was unrealistic. If you don't care for a lot of gratuitous blood and gore, skip this book.

    Agree, this is not even close to Larson's books. Characters are poorly developed and the whole "plot" seems to be about how stupid people can be. I too, read the whole thing and at the end was sorry I did. Then I read that the author is a screen writer. I think maybe that is where he should stay. Writing screen plays for shoot up bang, bang movies with little or now plot other than the action.

    A very convoluted story. Some of the characters are not very likable. Book does address the issues of right and wrong in today's criminal justice system.
