This series just gets better. Before i read this I re-read Dahl's previous two novels in this series, "The Blinded Man" and "Bad Blood".I love the way that the "A-Team" develop across the 3 novels, and the way that Dahl spreads the narrative across the whole of the team. It makes a change from most crime novels where there is usually just one lead investigator.

Although the novel covers very serious topics and is quite graphic there are touches of humour and Dahl is a master of the sly dig. His writing flows effortlessly and he juggles the many characters well.

My only complaint is the length of time it takes to get these books translated and published in the UK. We are years behind and at one book a year we are never going to catch up with the athor,

Some people may find the oblique, idiosyncratic style irritating with its philosophising and rationalising police. I find it interesting and amusing giving a sense of how an individual does investigate. No maverick cops in sight too! Nicely complicated plot. Absolutely nothing like the TV series, Hultin for instance, changes sex loses his bladder problems but gains a leg, the rest of the A-Team are the same fortunately.

This is intelligent crime fiction, not your usual run of the mill stuff whatsoever, you can't take your eye of the page or you will miss something critical in the clever intertwining plots that are in full swing.

I am a fan of the TV show "Arne Dahl" so it helped possibly that I knew the main characters that make up the "A Unit" - the team given the most complex and major crime cases to crack. I am also a fan of Scandinavian writing, especially crime and TV series, I just think it's a cut above a lot of what else is out there, this was no exception.

The book weaves together a few different story lines, but it's clever as eventually as the dust clears it becomes apparent how everything is connected, it's exciting and it's sophisticated crime writing, it's quite unique to most crime fiction books that I have read (and I read a lot, it's my favourite genre). This work is platinum, solid and exquisite.

I really liked the way the characters were explored and expanded upon at the same time as the plot moving along at a strong, fast pace - there was enough surprises and "ah-hah!" moments to make me smile, as things were revealed to me that I hadn't foreseen. I love a surprise in a crime book, just when you think you have it all worked out, you don't.

This book takes concentration and focus, there are a lot of characters, and a lot of things going on, so if you blink or relax too much you might miss something critical. But don't let that put you off, this is GOOD writing, it's a solid plot that is different to the average crime novel and the characters are fantastic.

The ending, the final reveal, the outcome made me smile, hugely, I was cheering on the team every step of the way.

A 4.5 star rating from me, recommended highly to any sophisticated reader who might be a touch selective over what they read, this is quality work, not trash fiction that you read and forget.

Such a great series of books which has been made popular by the TV series as well. Hopefully more to come. Just make sure that you read this series in sequence otherwise there are too many interpersonal sides to the stroy that won't make sense to someone starting mid series. The characters are well balanced and real. They're not stereotypical of the modern Scandinavian crime novel by being permanently depressed or alcoholic or having a dark past; they have their challenges but effectively, they are real characters dealing with stressful situations and putting their lives on the line for the sake of duty. The stories are solid as well and, although dressed up to entertain, reflect real life situations. Get the series and look out for the TV series.

Excellent as always. I do think the books are enhanced by the casting in the TV series as the characters are personalised appropriately. Like the other books, the story is exciting and enjoyable without gratuitous sex and violence.

Excellent read as were the other two. This one is a little more philosophical in places. I did find it a little disjointed at times but very much enjoyed it and will be looking out for more. Its a little more gritty than English authors and thus I find a bit more realistic. I watched the TV series these all seem to have been set before the ones on the TV. The characters are thus in slightly different position and at the start I found it difficult reconcile the TV characters with those in the book. Then gave up and just enjoyed the book.

Format: Hardcover
This is my second Arne Dahl thriller. I first read 'Bad Blood' from 2014. In that book I met the cast of characters who are resurrected from Unit A. Arne Dahl brings us the Swedish version of the political thriller in this new book. 'To The Top Of The Mountain' is by far my favorite if the two I have read. There is a cast of characters, but it is not particularly difficult to keep track of them. Each man and woman of Unit A tells their story in bits and pieces. We also pick up two new members of the Paedophile Unit in this book.

Unit A had been disbanded after the last crime spree ended in a complete mess. Jan-Olov Hultin. The Chief had retired to his country cottage. The rest of the group were sent to other departments. However. When two seemingly unconnected explosions and crimes become connected, Unit A is back together again. A prison cell was blown to pieces as was the occupant, a man in a pub was killed and several dangerous groups were identified as being present. A well known drug king pin's men were killed in a massacre.The group were given assignments, and though most work alone, they met at least once a day together in their basement office. One of the detectives who had been assigned to the Paedophile group wanted o finish his job and then work with Unit A. We see the relationships develop between the team members, and we get to know them. Several surprises along the way, but that is exactly what we should expect in Arne Dahl's books.

The storyline is very fast paced, in the midst the individuals stand out, and that is what gives this series the gratification we find at the results. I was constantly surprised at the revolving doors and the superb writing. The political situation in Sweden is a big part of this book, and it is fascinating.
