"1970: In an overcrowded Stockholm subway station, a harried father and his two boys are late for their train. Joel, the youngest, is howling in his stroller and his seven-year-old brother, Kristoffer, refuses to take the elevator. A woman approaches and helpfully offers to lead Kristoffer up the stairs. Reluctantly his father agrees, but when he arrives on the platform Kristoffer and the woman have vanished without a trace. The kidnapping becomes a national sensation, but the boy is never found. Today: Joel, now an adult, goes missing in suspicious circumstances. His frantic wife turns to Danny Katz--an old friend with a troubled past--for help. A brilliant computer programmer and recovering heroin addict, Katz is also the divorced father of two young girls. Katz begins to dig behind the digital veil in search of Joel, even though the investigation quickly interferes with his duties as a parent. Before long, Katz discovers he isn't the only one trying to find Joel. The deeper Katz digs, the more upsetting the secrets he uncovers about the wealthy and powerful family at the heart of the investigation. Chillingly, the case takes a violent turn that reveals a disorienting connection to Katz's own troubled childhood--soon there will be no backing out of his unofficial investigation"--… (més)

Carl Johan Vallgren kan verkligen skriva. Det märks även i denna triller. Spännande med högt driv gör boken klart lyssningsvärd. ( )

Un bel thriller, con una bella storia complessa e parecchi personaggi.Una bella scoperta questo autore. ( )

In 1970, a 7 year old boy is abducted from a Stockholm subway station & no trace is ever found. More than 40 years later, his wealthy brother disappears. When the police drag their feet his wife turns to Katz, a translator/computer whiz who was in the military with her husband.
As Katz begins to investigate, he unknowingly sets in motion a chain of events that will turn his life upside down. Old family secrets & conspiracies are buried in the past & there are powerful men who will do anything to prevent their discovery. Katz becomes a target & when people around him start to die, he has to rely on old skills to stay alive long enough to figure out the truth.

This is an intricate, fast paced thriller with a large cast of memorable characters. There are many threads to the plot that are rooted in the past & as these are slowly revealed, the characters become more complex. Some of them are not whom they seem & trying to separate the good guys from the bad will keep you on your toes.

The author does a great job of creating one atmospheric setting after another without interrupting the flow. The scope of the story is gradually revealed & there are several big twists that make you question what you thought you knew. Tension builds as each new piece of information acts as an omen of something terrible lurking right around the corner.

This was a new author for me & I really enjoyed their stylish & gritty storytelling. Katz is an interesting & original character & if this is the start of a new series, sign me up for book #2. ( )

Ei pöllömpi debyytti, takakannessa tosin lukee "yhtä loistokas kuin Kepler" jota en nyt ehkä ihan allekirjoita. Mut aivan kelvollinen luettava. ( )
  Iira | Apr 24, 2015 |
Min favoritförfattare byter genre och gör det med bravur. Under pseudonymen Lucifer levererar Carl-Johan Vallgren en Stockholms-noir som sträcker sig till Karibien och en historien sprungen ur en väldigt skruvad överklassfamilj och en stukad och annorlunda hjälte i Danny Katz. Som alltid välskrivet och läsvärt. Jag är glad att det kommer komma fler böcker om Danny Katz från Carl-Johan… förlåt, Lucifer. ( )
