    1988 The Swedish penitentiary system is so bad, that a Swede convicted for spying for the Soviet Union manages to escape to Moscow.The Swedish government sends Hamilton to Moscow to kill him Is it legal for a Swedish government to order the assassination of a Swedish citizen In theory, no But in practice, who cares Once again, irony and cynicism put at the service of entertainment Unfortunately, not available in English.

    The beginning of this book is greatly amusing, knowing some of the background of the events it wraps itself around I came to read it after reading many of Liza Marklund s books and her Author s Notes and Epilogues It had sat on my self for a year orbefore I decided I had read enough of Jan Giullou s background investigations and his novels to read his original work.


  7. Jakob Thomsen Jakob Thomsen says:

    The story is fine, it s just too long Further the authors disgust of the swedish security police is very clear, unfortunately so much that it become quite dull and repetetive.
