LoveReading Expert Review of Stockholm Delete

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
