The Root of Evil

Published by: Mantle

Almost six hundred pages of a complex, carefully written international plot spun in clear prose. Well worth the time and of especial interest to those who particularly lean towards Swedish crime writing, and perhaps more rewarding than work by some of the more renowned (and younger) authors.
