Bombmakaren och hans kvinna The Bomb Maker and his Woman
It is Monday, 11 May when Security Service Operations Chief Lisa Mattei receives a phone call from her superior. The short conversation turns everything on its head as the country enters a state of high alert. Their British colleague has made contact.
As something begins, so must something else come to an end.
“It is masterfully done. Unruly, distinct and sarcastic”
“The Bomb Maker and his Woman is classic GW [Persson]. The dramaturgy is flawless /…/ It appears as if Persson has set out to prove that he’s man enough to write a crime novel featuring women in all the key roles. Here they’re everywhere: tough, determined, witty – and devilishly cool.”
“Time and time again I chuckle drily to myself at Leif GW Persson’s characteristic, dispassionately mean turns of phrase. /…/ It’s a blessing to read an author with such a firm grasp of the Swedish language; it’s certainly a rarity within the crime genre.”
“One of the best Swedish suspense titles of the year.”
“Spine-chilling suspense and fascinating characters. /…/ The language and rhythm is confident, everything fits together, and the smallest detail is thought out and deliberate.”
“The Bomb Maker and his Woman is classic GW Persson. It’s familiar yet on-trend, challenging and moreover tied to his universe and the events of previous books.”
“What impresses is Persson’s ability to gradually incorporate the classic spy novel’s dizzying intrigues, mix-ups, and feeling of distrust towards everyone into Swedish police work without making it seem construed.”
