In the dark of the Stockholm underworld three lives tied together. A greedy student (who looks like a minor character from American psycho), a south-american jailbird and a Serbian criminal. In their world everyone moved by power and money. And revenge.... Some of them, revenge. ( )

The story is good, but the translation is horrendous. ( )

Oma arvio: Teos on todenmukainen kuvaus Tukholman alamaailmasta. Teoksessa on käytetty myös hienosti kieltä: alamaailman kasvatit ja yläluokan jetset puhuvat molemmat omaa slangia. Tästä kuuluu toki kiitos myös kääntäjälle. Tarinassa on kolme päähenkilöä: Tukholmaan opiskelemaan tuleva ja kadonnutta sisartaan etsivä Johan Westlund eli JW, vankilasta karannut Jorge ja rikollisjengiin kuuluva Mrado. JW joutuu mukaan rikollisjengiin ja seuraukset voi jokainen itse arvata. Jorgen elämäntehtävänä on kosto ja Mrado haluaa laajentaa bisneksiään. Mrado on toisaalta myös pienen tytön isä ja kirjassa kuvataan myös hänen pehmeämpää puoltaan koskettavasti. Isyyden ja rikosten sovittaminen yhteen ei kuitenkaan ole helppoa. Lapidus kuvaa tätä kaikkea erittäin raadollisesti ja asiantuntevasti. Vaikka kirja on raju ja väkivaltainen se on myös viihdyttävä ja hyvin jaksotettu. ( )

Ok, but the build up through the book was a bit to long and the ending a bit to short. ( )

Totally against my usual way of doing, I saw the movie to this book before I read it. And, I ust say, that seeing the move made me doubt whether I shoud read it al all. Not read book that I bought (for me) is not done, so I started ayway. And I must admit, that I liked the book better than the movie. The memory of the latter did not really last long, so it was almost like I read it 'like nothing happened before'.

I liked the book. It is mixing different storylines, characters who make deals and betray one another, who try to make unions, who want to climb higher on the ladder of Stockholm's criminal world. I had difficulties with the language at first: quite lot of jargon (slang) was used. And, since I'm not really up to date on todays slang (was I ever then?), it took some timee to figure out what the new words meant. Neverthelesss, it is a book that reads like the fast paced thriller it is. If you like these kind of books, gangster style thriller, it is defenitely one for you. ( )

Book description
In Stockholm, waar de decadente bovenwereld en de rauwe onderwereld van Zweden nauw met elkaar verbonden zijn, verdwijnt een jonge vrouw spoorloos en kruisen de wegen van drie jonge mannen elkaar. Mrado is een Joegoslavische huurling die de voogdij over zijn dochtertje probeert te krijgen. Jorge is een drugsdealende latino die uit de gevangenis ontsnapt. De ambitieuze student JW ten slotte zoekt koortsachtig manieren om zijn dure levensstijl te kunnen blijven betalen. Alledrie zwichten ze voor de destructieve lokroep van de cocaïnehandel. Net als de verdwenen jonge vrouw dromen ze van een beter leven, maar dan hebben ze wel geld nodig. Veel geld. Snel.
