PROTAGONIST: DI Ewert Grens; infiltrator Piet Hoffman
SERIES: #5 of 5; 3rd book translated into English
RATING: 4.75
WHY: Piet Hoffman is an infiltrator working with the Swedish police. Over a long period of time, he has built a relationship with the Polish Mafia. He commits a minor crime so that he can be incarcerated and work on their drug distribution network in the Swedish prison system, eventually to topple their reign. He is witness to the murder of another infiltrator, a case which is assigned to the dogged detective inspector, Ewert Grens. Hoffman is a fascinating character, and I was totally engrossed in his actions. The narrative builds to an explosive climax and a very satisfying resolution. Slow paced to start, ultimately the book was an exciting and engrossing read.
