The core plot of this book is extremely good and I enjoyed the unusual and at times exciting story, but the writing lacks style and closer editing. It jumps around a little too much, breaking the flow of the reader and I felt some dialogues were a little too long. It's a shame because this could have been a cracking book. The author has a sequel out which I hope flows a little better, I will look forward to reading and comparing.

Good if (I hope) rather unbelievable story. A dangerous drug is in the wrong hands: a father grieving for his dead daughter has become obsessed with revenge. (We are more or less told this at the start, so not a spoiler!) A few familiar themes, including the idea of some of Sweden's special branch having unfortunate attitudes (hence words like "towelhead", which only appear in the thoughts of the corrupt special branch policeman who is so convinced that everything is an Islamist conspiracy that ...more

What I like about this book is that it's a little bit different from the rest of the books in the same category. I also like Walter and Jonna and their friendship and I hope I'll see more in the next book!

What I disliked was the dialogues and sometimes the language. There were also a lot of people and details to remember in the first part of the book, which made the story uninteresting.

If the language would have been better, I would have given this book 3/5 but now it's 2/5 and I really hope tha

Ruotsalaiset ne osaa tämänkin lajin.Mielenkiintoinen ja oikein luettava dekkari.Miinuksena ehkä hiukan liian monta seurattavaa henkilöhahmoa, jotka ainakin sivuhenkilöiden osalta jäivät hiukan vaillinaisiksi. Kyseessä on kuitenkin selkeästi sarjan aloitus.Varmaanikin tämän kirjan sivuhenkilöt seilkailevat myös tulevissa kirjoissa.Enpä ihmettelisi jos päähenkilöiden välillä olisi myös sukulaisuussuhde orastavan ystävyyden lisäksi.

Nja, lite väl långsam för min smak. Det är en bra thriller, inte tu tal om det. Det innehåller det klassiska kryddan av kritik mot byråkrati och kompiskorruption inom rättssystemet här i Sverige. För jurister finns det en viss knorr att fundera över. Det är starka karaktärer i boken med nyans och bakgrund.

För några år sedan läste alla de här böckerna om Walter Gröhn. Alla utom jag. Till och med sambon. Och alla älskade de dem. Jag blev ju otroligt nyfiken och köpte de tre första delarna, men de har stått där olästa i hyllan. Nu har jag äntligen läst första delen. Läs mer på http://bokslut.blogspot.se/2015/01/vr...

A really disjointed book that left a xenophobic taste in my mouth. I really didn't like the use of 'towelhead' and other slurs against muslims. I think I am sick of reading the same cliche time and time again; young and hardworking female police officer and an aloof old inspector who solves every case he has because he is a prodigy.
Thomas Nielsen
Under gennemsnittet. Historien er ellers godt tænkt. Politiet er ganske givet en stor omgang bureaukrati, men selv bogen drukner også i bureaukrati. Alt for meget fokus bliver flyttet over på sidehistorier omkring de forskellige personer i bogen. Jeg vil dog give bogen en ekstra stjerne for de humoristiske episoder omkring bogens homoseksuelle.

This book was totally amazing great, I don't really feel a good conection to read "several crime" related books but this book was both good and sometimes funny.
I also sometimes talked to the story because I had a explanation or a thought/opinion before it was solved.

Well this book is highly recommended..

Nappasin tämän lukulistalle jonkun naistenlehden suosituksesta, kehuivat vuoden esikoidekkariksi. En kyllä ymmärrä miksi. Juoni oli täysin kökkö ja epäuskottava ja henkilöt kierrätetty paremmista esikuvista. Tätä tuki uskomattoman huonosti kirjoitettu dialogi, joka vei viimeisenkin lukunautinnon. Tämä oli huono kirja, jopa dekkarien sarjassa.

Great, steady, just what I expected when it comes to Swedish police books. Will read the second book in the series for sure. Read it in Swedish so I don't have a clue if it would translate well or not.

Njaaa.. Denna boken var sådär faktiskt. Själva handlingen tyckte jag om, den va nytänkande. Men språket var ju inte det bästa, och den va så himla rörig. Det kunde blivit en bra bok med tanke på handlingen. Synd :-(

Poorly edited book. Sadly, this could probably have been good with more work.

The basic ideas are intriguing, but the execution is lacking.

Also, it is just boring to go with the basic old and grumpy male police and young and ambitious female police.

I enjoyed this book enough to read it fairly quickly. I thought the theme could have been explored a bit more, it has more potential. I will read more of the authors books, and would recommend for a bit of escapism (isn't that we are all reading these books).

Decent story line & characters but needed further editing & author needs to find their own style.

It might deserve 3,5 stars in its current form. With a little more work, it could have gotten four stars. But I will read the next book, and I guess that's a good grade in itself.

Well - it's not very believeable, but then I suppose most crime stories aren't.
