4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read, 12 Jan 2014
I had read the previous two books in this trilogy so couldn't wait for the third, it was worth the wait. It is the modern spy book set in the world of world terrorism and British intelligence on the backfoot. As a fan of Le Carre and Craig Thomas it brings the spy genre into the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WW1 Researchers Gem, 28 Nov 2012
This is an excellent book, if like me you are working on WW1 research. I set out to give a talk to my local history group on the 18 men on our village war memorial, 18 largely forgotten men, and using the 1911 Census I achieved this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff, 8 May 2012
For those of you who are into the Scandavian crime books it is a must, for those of you who arent and wonder what it is all about then read this. I had read one of her later books in this series and went back to the first of Lackberg's books so i can follow the progress of the characters. The book is a fascinating study of modern Sweden but set in a small ex fishing port with 2 very different lead characters who run parallel for much of the book, which gives it much of its charm and interest as they follow the crime from different perspectives. As you would expect you dont see the end coming, Lackberg is a must in this genre.
