Stockholm Delete by Jens Lapidus
  

Lovereading view...

In a stilted style with sparse descriptions which takes a bit of getting into, this is one of those dark Scandinavian crime tales that builds slowly and suddenly grips you making you turn the pages at speed. It is a complex plot involving a young, attractive and very talented lawyer, Emily, a reformed gang criminal, Teddy, who helps her and the Stockholm underworld. Gangs, drugs, fraud, all at a very high level and involving corrupt police. There are several threads and a lot of characters that are sometimes difficult to follow but all becomes clear eventually. The twist at the denouement is neat and rounds things off well. However, there are unanswered questions, in particular the identity of the “big boss” who is so powerful and well protected that it is likely that a very few of those who work for him actually know who he is … So I expect more to come especially as Emily has been sacked from her law firm and must surely set up on her own with Teddy. I will look forward to reading them. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Reviews

At last: an epic European thriller to rival the Stieg Larsson books. It's an entirely new criminal world, beautifully rendered - and a wildly thrilling novel. -- James Ellroy on the Stockholm Noir trilogy

Jens Lapidus, with his dazzling book, Easy Money, is the new Swedish thriller writer everyone's been waiting for. -- Reggie Nadelson

Anything Jens Lapidus writes is a must-read for me. His writing crackles with a profound understanding of not simply why bad people do bad things, but how. -- Ryan Gattis

Jens Lapidus is a very talented crime author. He is also a young author. He is only going to get better - and he has every potential of becoming the best -- Leif GW Persson

Breathless staccato phrases matched with stylish acceleration a la James Ellroy's raw, terse prose... Lapidus delivers an intrigue that will keep you nailed to the pages Politiken, Denmark

[Stockholm Delete] is intense and hyperrealistic, written by a suspense novelist who this time has created a near perfectly matched relationship between the novel's content and the form in which it is presented. Dagbladet, Norway
