Swedish novels adapted into films Novels set in Stockholm Crime novels Swedish novels Swedish-language novels. The “o” in the titular “Money” has a slash through it, which is a letter that’s not actually in the Swedish alphabet! Alle facetten over criminaliteit, drugs, sex en het wit wassen van geld komen in dit verhaal aan bod.

I doubt that I will ever finish mney this book. I generally love Scandinavian noir, but this was actually pretty boring.

Snabba cash by Jens Lapidus

I look forward to the translation of the next two books in this trilogy. Lapidus is vele malen rauwer dan Larsson. Alas, the object lesson to be learned from Mr. JW accepts the offer and enters the criminal underground of Stockholm.

The main problem is one of jargon. I’m a sucker for Swedish crime trilogies. Abdulkarim has heard of Jorge, the recent escapee.

I had heard good things about it and about the movie adaptation starring one of lzpidus favorite up-and-coming actors, Joel Kinnaman and yet it fell short. A staggering gangster novel. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I literally hated this book dasy myself for not putting it down after about 60 pages. Na zijn ontsnapping probeert Jorge uit handen van de politie te blijven, kan geen afscheid Jorge Salinas Barrio, Johan Westlund JW en Mrado Slovovic zijn de drie sleutelfiguren in Snel geld, het eerste deel van de Stockholm trilogie.


Snabba cash – Salomonsson Agency

I am mighty impressed! The word on the street is that Jorge got very knowledgeable about the cocaine trade while he was in prison and thus JW gets an assignment to hire him. Preview — Snabba cash by Jens Lapidus. Intresting but kind of lacking in plot, with multifaceted but unsympathetic characters.

There is nothing or no one to like associated with this book. Also in Stockholm Noir Trilogy. I really wanted to like this book. I am also a bit concerned that the author is listed as a criminal defense lawyer who represents some of Sweden’s most notorious criminals.

Simultaneously Jorge has tried to blackmail the Yugoslav mafia boss. Jorge Salinas Barrio is a Latino who has gone to prison after taking the blame for drug business in which the Yugoslav mafia was involved. Jadnog, cijelu knjigu sam ga zvala Smrado.

Stylistically, the book is good. Het boek gaat ook over de monry van menselijke drijfveren. Feb 06, Nella rated it liked it. Unfortunately, this is sometimes overshadowed by a wildly miscalculated attempt to incorporate far too much detail about brand name attire and high-end cars. So slow, so full of unnecessary details, so not interesting. Easy Money is raw and dark, with crisp dialogue that shouts authenticity.


BOOK REVIEW: ‘Easy Money’

Easy Money produces a believable portrait of the in-scene that the hip crowd wants to be part of, and it does it with compassion, distance, and freshness. This book is also distinctive from jenss stylistic point of view, as the author has consciously chosen a fast, punchy realist style salted with slang to mirror the aggressive lifestyle of his characters. Characterisation and plotting are fast and furious, and show the moral vacuum of gangster life down to the nitty gritty of the gym and drug regime of Mrado, and the banal label-consciousness of Oapidus.

This article relies too much on references to primary sources. Como parte positiva destaco que no es la tipica novela negra en la que tengamos que descubrir al asesino al estilo de christie como sucede en este tipo de novelas. It’s one of those books that reads as if the author had aspirations of getting it made into a movie as soon as possible.
