Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A mystery begins when code-breaker William Sandberg is kidnapped from his home in Sweden just at the moment he attempts suicide and the reader is drawn further and further into bizarre events and cliffhanging scenarios, against-the-clock chases and startling, impossible conclusions. Short chapters and ever-changing points of view increase the tension in the dramatic moments to ‘knuckle biting’. This Swedish screenwriter certainly knows how to bring out the excitement in a situation. It is surprising, which is always pleasing. When reading it I really did not want to stop and that is the best thing that can be said of any book.

If you like Fredrik T. Olsson you might also like to read books by Christopher Galt and James Patterson.

'd thought of it. If you like your clocks ticking and your end of the world nighing and your pace fast and relentless, all shot through with a little bloody pandemic and code cracking, then boy are you ever going to love this book. I did. Simon Toyne I loved it absolutely and with passion - I wish I could start all over again now with no knowledge, yet another reminder for me of why I read Liz Loves Books The tension never lets up as the stakes get higher and higher in this fast-paced thriller. Chain of Events is an exciting and entertaining read and an impressive debut novel for Swedish screenwriter Fredrik T Olsson Izzy Reads Each page is action-packed, filled with enough detail and thrill to wind you up so much the anticipation could set you off like a top ... I loved this book. Olsson's debut, a world-in-peril thriller, gets high marks for developing an original concept and building suspense Publishers Weekly Exhilerating. Utterly exhausting. Totally addictive. Unbelievably clever and if you want your thrillers to be, well you know, actually thrilling, you have come to the right place. Liz Loves Books Swedish scriptwriter Olsson's first novel amps up the action via a doomsday scenario set in Europe ... Olsson lines up a sympathetic and well-developed cast of characters, inserts them into some interesting places, and allows very few dull moments, especially once the action really gets rolling. An end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it thriller featuring two unlikely, but very likable, protagonists. Kirkus Don't wait for the film, read it now - before it's too late! (5 stars) Weekend Sport'
