Mittvatten

Mittvatten Turmoil

Berger & Blom #3

Sam Berger is suspected of a murder he has not committed, and his partner Molly Blom is in a coma. He escapes to the archipelago and waits for an order from the Swedish Security Service’s chief executive. A terrorist attempt is threatening Stockholm and a wanted murderer, who has kidnapped a girl, can go free. Is Berger the solution or part of the problem?

Arne Dahl reaffirms his mastery with Turmoil, a crime novel of international class, in the same spirit as his previous highly acclaimed novels Watching You and Hunted.

Reviews

  • “There’s no one in Nordic crime right now who’s better than Arne Dahl. He takes the great British tradition of treason thrillers, combines it with American police and women’s crime literature, and decorates it with more or less explicit literary references from history, as was done during the golden age of the genre; but he also adds a fully updated social-political reality as is the custom in Nordic noir. /.../ This conclusion was a refreshing one, but do not let it end here.”

  • “An utter bullseye.”

    ★★★★★

    Krimifan, Denmark

  • Turmoil is an excellent suspense novel and can easily be read as a stand-alone. /.../ Arne Dahl has once again proved to be one of the world’s greatest writers of suspense, and you can tell, as always, that Jan Arnald is a master of language.”

    ★★★★★★

    Bogpusheren, Denmark

  • “Suspense, intensity, strong characters and an unexpected plot. /…/ Arne Dahl is a master of how to confuse the reader, and his intricate and well-planned plot constantly gives the story a new twist. The author really knows his stuff and his short, precise sentences and word choices fit perfectly with the story.”

    Litteratursiden, Denmark

  • “Turmoil is phenomenal. /.../ Jump and dive deep into the midst of darkness and swim along on a demanding, dangerous, entertaining, unpredictable and superb experience – elegantly guided by one of the greatest masters of crime.”

    Vildmedkrimi, Denmark

  • “Dahl builds an intricate intrigue. /.../ Towards the end you start to long for the next nail-biting novel about Sam Berger.”

    Skaraborgs Allehanda, Sweden

  • “It needs to be said right off the bat, Arne Dahl is a skilled writer and it is suspenseful. /.../ The plot is twisted. /.../ [Turmoil] is a must-read. A lot of pieces fall into place in this last installment.”

    Ölandsbladet, Sweden

  • “It’s not for nothing Arne Dahl is known as the master of plots. /.../ The suspense is borderline unbearable. /.../ The Berger & Blom trilogy is a smart and stylish composition. /.../ Arne Dahl is an author who always writes well and delicately, and he’s one of Sweden’s most read-worthy and rebellious crime writers.”

    Norra Skåne, Sweden

  • “Arne Dahl has once again written a both smart and thrilling story where the protagonist is an anti-hero with a taste for dangerous women. Sam goes his own way, propelling the plot forward. Breathlessly I continue to read in order to understand and to find out more. The language is on point and the intrigue is tightly woven and at times breathtaking.”
