Maxim Jakubowski's view...

The Game trilogy originated in Sweden, right now the home par excellence of crime writing, and has become an international phenomenon with sales to 27 countries. Written by a former police officer and director of security at IT companies, the series touches all the right technological buttons and draws the reader into a fascinating world where technology, multinationals, mobile phones, computer games and hidden menace dominate and soon take over reality and soon confront Police Protection Officer Rebecca Normen and her brother, hacker HP. Fast-paced, with a twist or so every chapter, the novels will have you breathless and visualising the movie as you read (and the movie will probably come soon...). Strong characters carry you along the zigzags of the many-branched plot. Game is followed by Buzz and Bubble.

Synopsis

Game by Anders de la Motte

Play or be played in book one of the Game Trilogy , the Swedish thriller series taking the world by storm. Are you ready to play? When Henrik HP Pettersson picks up a mobile phone on a Stockholm train one morning, he has no idea that his life is about to change forever. The phone's invitation to play The Game is too tempting to resist and he soon finds himself embarking on a series of dangerous missions. The more daring the task, the greater his thrill and reward. But fun soon turns to fear as his Police Detective sister is dragged into the action. As their lives spiral out of control, HP faces a challenge he never expected. Can he outwit The Game before it's too late, or will The Game play him?
