This book is listed as yet another rival to Steig Larsen. This is at least the fifth book so advertised and by far the worst of the pretenders.. I am also a bit concerned that the author is listed as a criminal defense lawyer who represents some of Sweden's most notorious criminals. Really? The writing style is unusual and annoying starting sentences with verbs, run on sentences etc. The style is possibly intentionally manic, but disconcerting. There is nothing or no one to like associated with this book. Those of you who thought it was a thriller amaze me. I literally hated this book and myself for not putting it down after about 60 pages.
