Stieg Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy has made quite an impact on the reading public, but many of the themes covered in those novels appeared first in this earlier award-winning thriller, published in Sweden in 2002 and only translated to English in 2010.
The sly, sarcastic tone of this story leads to a disquieting unease and eventually dread as Persson’s depiction of political corruption zeros in on an assassination. The story unfolds through the viewpoints of multiple characters, distinctly drawn. The author has used real events in this novelisation in much the same way that Charles McCarry addressed the assassination of John F. Kennedy in his spy novel, The Tears of Autumn. It’s a challenging read, but a very rewarding one.

Ken Fredette I haven't read this yet but if it's similar to Stieg Larsson's first book it should be good.
