Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  A Monumental International Crime Thriller That Brad Thor Calls " The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets The Sopranos ." Enemies Are Everywhere nbsp; When Sophie Brinkmann--nurse, widow, single mother--meets Hector Guzman, her life is uneventful.nbsp; She likes his quiet charm and easy smile; she likes the way he welcomes her into his family.nbsp; She quickly learns, though, that his smooth façade masks something much more sinister. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Guzman is the head of a powerful international crime ring with a reach into drugs and weapons that extends from Europe to South America.nbsp; His interests are under siege by a ruthless German syndicate who will stop at nothing to stake their claim.nbsp; But the Guzmans are fighters and will go to war to protect what's rightfully theirs. nbsp;The conflict quickly escalates to become a deadly turf war between the rival organizations that includes an itinerant arms dealer, a deeply disturbed detective, a vicious hit man, and a wily police chief.nbsp; Sophie, too, is unwittingly caught in the middle.nbsp; She must summon everything within her to navigate this intricate web of moral ambiguity, deadly obsession, and craven gamesmanship.nbsp; nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; The Andalucian Friend is a powerhouse of a novel--turbo-charged, action-packed, highly sophisticated, and epic in scope--and announces Alexander Söderberg as the most exciting new voice in thrillers in a generation.

In the vein of the Millennium trilogy but even less plausible. Nice nurse gets sucked into a life of crime and finds that she is good at it. Won't bother with the upcoming sequels.
