Wasn’t too interested in the Natalie storyline or character, had me guessing on what would happen, a fast read ( )

We can follow the fate of the characters in the Stockholm underworld, just like in the previous books of the trilogy. The lives of an ambitious criminal, an undercover cop and the heir of a big criminal empire i fatally interwoven until the end. Like previously there are some recurring characters from the previous books but it’s a standalone story and can be enjoyed without knowing those. ( )

Hard to say what I think of this book.
On the one hand it is very difficult, especially in the first 100 pages. The language used, the many characters who do things that are sometimes (yet) completely inapprehensible, the flashbacks in the text to events that happened in earlier, exactly as hard to understand books.

On second thought, when things get on the way, the book has a kind of flow, a natural and enevitable way of going. From that point onward I liked it more and more and when I read the last page I even felt a kind of reluctance, didn't want to finish yet, didn't want the story to be over. I do not hope for another episode, I'm not sure if I'll read a book by this author again (apart from re-reading this trilogy). His style is too strange for me to feel comfortable with. Nevertheless I'm glad to have read it. ( )

'I don't know who the fuck you are talking about.'
'I know you don't. And the police don't. And the stick up boys wouldn't have a fucking clue either. Cause Charlie Sollers just sold dope. No profile. No street rep. Just buy for a dollar, sell for two.'

Book description
Nadat er een dodelijke aanslag is gepleegd op de Godfather van de Stockholmse onderwereld ontstaat er een strijd om de macht. Wie wordt de nieuwe ‘Joegobaas’? De rechterhand van Radovan, Stefanovic, of zijn dochter Nathalie. Tegen deze achtergrond beraamd Jorge de ultieme WTO (waarde transport overval) en wil JW een grootse comeback maken met de perfecte manier om bloedgeld wit te wassen. Een undercover agent zit iedereen echter op de hielen.
