Flawed yet complex characters, heinous crimes, gloomy settings and a totally gripping writing style. Nordic Noir at its best and a brilliant new series from the master of Swedish crime thrillers.
Arne Dahl’s writing style is very difficult to put down, so don’t start this one if you have an early start next morning.
The Arne Dahl TV series was my introduction to the world of Nordic Noir and I’ve been a huge fan of everything written by this gifted author for many years but this Sam Berger series is like Arne Dahl’s best work on steroids. It’s grips you from the opening scene and never lets go.
I’ve already started the second in the series and sincerely hope I won’t have to wait to long for the third to be translated.
Highly recommended for fans of the genre and those wanting to dip their toes in the Nordic Noir pond.
