Quality pageturner with many dimensions
Rights Fredrik Broman series
Håkan Östlundh brings his readers right into the action, amuses them, makes them nervous, angry, happy and sad with his knife-sharp skill visualizing scenes and creating characters. Not a single detail in the text is left hanging; everything has its reason.
Östlundh’s protagonists are smart, which allows you to feel clever when you read. Yet you will be surprised by the turns the intriguing stories takes. Once you start to read, you don’t want to put the book down, and once you’ve finished, you won’t forget it, perhaps because the solutions are not simple and morality not as clear-cut as you would imagine.
2021 the brilliant finale of the compelling, internationally lauded thriller trilogy is published. In three impressively conceived, high tension page-turners Håkan Östlundh welcomes you to enter a frightening world where a life is nothing worth in the pursuit of power and money. You will be involved in the lives of a young man and a woman who meets when his father and her lover dies in an explosion. And you will fear for their lives in the nail-biting, well-twisted Prophet Trilogy.
Håkan Östlundh debuted as an author right out of high school and then studied literature and worked as a journalist. The Swedish readers are well acquainted with his authorship from the crime novels about policeman Fredrik Broman as well as by his fiction novels. He also writes for television and film.
