Top Dogg

Top Dogg Top Dog

For decades, a secret network in Stockholm has been exploiting young girls, ruthlessly eliminating anyone who threatens to reveal their secret. In the third book about the odd duo Teddy and Emelie – the thug and the lawyer – the noose tightens. The police force has established a special team to find out just who’s involved in the network, but can’t seem to get close enough. And who is it that’s trying to silence Teddy and Emelie, using any means necessary?

Top Dog is the powerful resolution of the drama that began in the hit novels The VIP Room and Stockholm Delete.

Reviews

  • “Jens Lapidus is credible in every situation, hits notes like no one else can and has in fact created a language of his own.”

    Göteborgs-Posten, Sweden

  • “Skillfully and knowledgeably narrated about Stockholm’s underworld, but also about successful businessmen that behave in a similar manner, without the consequences having to be the same.”

    Dagens Nyheter, Sweden

  • “I can easily sympathize with Lapidus’ consistent analysis of the causes of crime, inequality, and unfair distribution as the main reasons why some people get crazy rich and others lose out on a future. In this trilogy, as well as Easy Money and the other parts of the Stockholm Noir series, wealth and power are tied to oppression and contempt – yet it is the dream of making it that drives most involved.”

    Aftonbladet, Sweden

  • “Jens Lapidus exposes society’s greatest betrayals.”

    Expressen, Sweden

  • “A summer thriller that burns like hot asphalt against bare feet.”

    Arbetarbladet, Sweden

  • “The modern age is depicted with clear eyes and the dialogue is tight and smart. It’s about the pursuit of success and wealth among the downtown stock market sharks and the criminals in the suburbs. And love – because even crooks can be hit by Cupid’s arrows.”

    Femina, Sweden

  • “Jens Lapidus skillfully depicts life at a law firm as well as in the criminal world. He does so with a story that is both thrilling and well-written. Jens Lapidus is clearly a “top dog” amongst Swedish crime writers.”

    Ölandsbladet, Sweden

  • “I can’t say anything but that it’s full speed ahead, entertaining, and extremely thrilling.”

    Länstidningen Södertälje, Sweden

  • “Greed and lust, one that is more about the power than the sex - though both can be combined - are ingredients in this drama that Lapidus has given us. Looks like it won’t matter if there are some rainy days this summer.”

    Östra Småland, Sweden
