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.
