A breathtaking new voice in Nordic crime fiction—the internationally bestselling sensation, now available in English
Swedish author Anders de la Motte exploded onto the international literary scene in 2010 with his heart-pounding debut, Game, the first novel in his high-concept, high-tech Game Trilogy, which has been acclaimed as “utterly-brilliant” (DAST Magazine) and “first-class entertainment” (Kristianstadsbladet). Praised for its contemporary-energy, wit and linguistic playfulness, the Game Trilogy, now an international sensation to be published in more-than twenty-five countries, represents a thoroughly original and refreshing voice in Nordic crime fiction.
The Game has brought HP Petterson wealth and freedom, but his newly comfortable life is a little . . . unsatisfying. He misses the danger, and the adrenalin rush. When he meets the rich and beautiful Anna Argos in a luxurious Dubai hotel, life instantly gets more interesting. But there is something mysterious lurking beneath Anna’s cool surface. And there’s something unsettling about her cellphone . . .
Rebecca Normén is now heading up an elite bodyguard team and thinks she’s put her personal demons behind her, but everything changes when she learns of a web forum containing threatening posts that obviously refer to her. As the walls close in on HP and Rebecca, old questions catch up with them. What is real? Whom can you trust? And how do you protect yourself from a threat whose existence you cannot prove?
