Livet deluxe (#3)
Jens Lapidus (b. 1974) is the author of three of the best selling Swedish novels this past decade: Easy Money, Never Fuck Up and Life Deluxe. His own professional experience as a criminal defense lawyer, at a firm representing some of the most notorious criminals in the country, has given him unusual insights into a world that most people would rather not acknowledge. Critics have tagged him "a Swedish James Ellroy", a truth-telling author who writes about life on the streets and depicts the underbelly of Swedish society. The Stockholm Noir trilogy has already become a phenomenon in Sweden and abroad.
"At last: an epic European thriller to rival the Stieg Larsson books. It's an entirely new criminal world, beautifully rendered – and a wildly thrilling novel."
– James Ellroy
"Jens Lapidus, with his dazzling book, Easy Money, is the new Swedish thriller writer everyone's been waiting for."
– Reggie Nadelson
"Jens Lapidus is a very talented crime author. He is also a young author. He is only going to get better – and he has every potential of becoming the best"
– Leif GW Persson
