So a writer comes out with a best seller then sometimes the second book drops like a mud brick.
"Oh here's an idea, Let the bad guy be one of our protagonists' father" That's such a novel approach-(Star Wars)
Y'know what woulda made this book good:
Mr. "Sadistic Rapiist tattoo" got all happy about the middle of the book cuz he thought he had got Salenger. I even knew then how he could have nailed her. He never thought he was going to escape her blackmail so why not go to a major crime lord and say, "The next time you put a hit on someone, use my gun (which I know Salenger touched cuz she's always sneaking into my apartment), BUT first you have to kill ME in some sexual overtoned way and leave this "rape" video out to further implicate her."
But nooooo. Let's go down some inherent analgesic bizarro trail wth this bumbling Goliath who just choses to randomly shoot people and a crippled old man coming out at the end of the story and a head-wounded chick digging her way out of a grave...what the hell...and Bloomquist is still a tool. Salenger is so smart and she can't see perimeter alarms????
This book is so not worth a place as a "sequel". The characters are so different than in "Tattoo" and the author goes out of his way to be more James Bondish than Kalle Bloomqistish. 'Lisbeth Salenger and Lisalander...did anybody else see that?...mmmm
