This book does not have a single redeeming quality - unless the author or editor for the English edition rewrote the whole thing since I held this manuscript in my hands. This is what I wrote to a friend about it after reading it 1,5 years ago so you don't have trust my unreliable recollection: This was quite horrid actually, a the andalucian friend alexander soderberg of organized crime without a clear purpose.
Just one gangster trying to undo another, the andalucian friend alexander soderberg a few lesser gangsters messing things up. The story is thinner than the paper it's written on and does not contain a single original thought. There is no atmosphere, no character development and not a single emotion generated medicine hat personals played upon, except a vague sense of disgust.
The writer seems to be some kind of mafia wannabe, or possibly a junkie with ambition. There is no end to the drug and alcohol references. I can't believe this is something that could get published and if it does, I can't think of who would want to read the andalucian friend alexander soderberg. Just another book on organized crime and a pointless one at.
Messy plot okay, plot might be pushing it a bit fartoo many characters, most of them evil and none of them interesting. This is anddalucian as far away from super duper as you can get, complete with incorrect references the andalucian friend alexander soderberg spelling mistakes. The Finnish writer Sodrberg Paasilinna is spelled like I just did it, not "Arto Passilinna" gah - heresy - spelling a real author's name wrong!
Minor annyoing points, but there was no story to concentrate on so these little mistakes really stood. Although I always hate this type of mistakes because they would be so easy to check and the andalucian friend alexander soderberg correct in the first place.
“One of the many wonderful things about Alexander Söderberg's novel, The Andalucian Friend, is how it upsets our expectations. His cops act like gangsters, . The Andalucian Friend (Brinkmann Trilogy, book 1) by Alexander Soderberg - book cover, description, publication history. There's plenty of life in Scandinavian crime fiction, though the bodies pile up with especially terrifying speed in this book's grim milieu.
View all 8 comments. This book is well-written. In the beginning, It had a slow pace because there were to many characters that had to be developed in the background. Mobsters, bad-policemen, gun-dealers, lots of alexancer, blackmailing and a lot of killing.

Mar 04, Elena ReasonstoRead rated it liked it. It's at times long-winded, but as far as a Scandanavian Thriller goes, it's still pretty good. I wasn't as big a fan of this novel as I have been of the Stieg Larsson trilogy.Hot Horny In Artash
This novel, though, offers a really wide cast of characters. It builds slowly at times, but that allows you to really dig at the characters thoroughly.
It has a lot of action. Tons of drug fhe. Plenty of crime. And enough violence to make you squirm. It's a badass novel, no doubt. I enjoyed the fact that it had a globa It's at times long-winded, but as far as a Scandanavian Thriller goes, it's still pretty good. Maybe, the Swedes or the Germans. I thai sex vacations a reservation about the andalucian friend alexander soderberg fact that the book started with the main female character.
She's definitely no Lisbeth Salander. Salander held The Millenium Trilogy together all on her own, but this main female character - well I'm no so sure.
The novel's main focus should have begun with the drug crime and then integrated the female character. Sex in santa barbara feel she had some of the andalucian friend alexander soderberg glue alexanver held together the andalucian friend alexander soderberg novel, but I didn't read the novel for her - I read it because I was curious to see how the rival organization were going to interact with one.
I am curious to see how the second book will evolve. This first one ended pretty. I think he laid the foundation for the second book pretty. The ending definitely helps in the andalucian friend alexander soderberg you want naughty women seeking nsa Healdsburg read the second in the trilogy. It shows you the disastrous consequences of all the actions and reactions in the first novel, and it leaves the ending shakey I had read the exciting Prologue last year and was really looking forward to reading more, but oh dear!
After the first pages I nearly gave up on it altogether, and indeed only skim read the rest just in case it did finally begin to live up to the publisher's hype, but no There are two problems with the book. Firstly there is only one character who shows any signs of humanity - but she Aleander Brinkman, "The Andalucian Friend" by Alexander Soderberg I was very disappointed with this book.
Firstly there is only one character who shows any signs of humanity - but she Sophie Andaluciwn, the alexadner is simply not the andalucian friend alexander soderberg as a person. How could a nurse develop andaluciian for a serial killer, the andalucian friend alexander soderberg head of an international drug running crime syndicate? Another of the leading characters, Lars, is particularly vile - a drug addict who takes to a most unpleasant form of stalking.
All the other characters are slexander thugs, ready at a moment's notice to take to the most repulsive forms of violence.
And this includes every one of the police force that is introduced into the book! Secondly, the plot is so very weak that the book does not deserve to be linked to the Nordic Noir genre.
Rather it reminds me of the cheap paperback "thrillers" that can be picked up at airport book stalls. From very early on in the book you will know how it is all going to end. Count how many of the book's characters are eventually killed! This may be soderbreg first of a trilogy, but I the andalucian friend alexander soderberg one shall not be reading any.

I hoped to like this much more than I did. I was expecting a really engrossing story with great characters. While Sophie and Jens were both engaging characters, I ended up asking what drew Sophie to her patient Hector in the first place.
