    When you discover a new author it s such a thrill, isn t it I remember, in my twenties, reading Robert Ludlum s The Matarese Circle, Ken Follett s Eye of the Needle, Frederick Forsyth s The Day of the Jackal and being blown away How did these guys write like this I was hooked on them and, subsequently, read everything they wrote after that Somehow over the years I drifted away from spy thrillers They became clich , mostly derivative of these master s genre work So when I was handed The Swimmer by Joakim Zander, I wasn t expecting to become excited about the genre again But Zander s book has everything that Ludlum, Follett, and Forsyth s books did His skill with words, the imminent feeling of suspense, and a layered, intriguing story combine perfectly for an exciting read What makes it even amazing is that this is a translation from Zander s native Swedish Klara Waldeen was orphaned as a child and raised by her grandparents in an isolated area of Sweden As an adult, she now lives in Brussels and works as a political aide A million miles away, in another life and another country, an old spy who had prioritized his job over hi...

    I have long loved spy thrillers, but it seems I have either grown out of the genre or their authors have run out of new ideas I don t even log on my Goodreads shelf all those fat Clancy, Ludlam, and DeMille tales that I spent so many days immersed in decades ago With the Cold War gone, the high quality stories of Le Carre and Deighton are just a distant nostalgic dream But the buzz on this new book got my appetite whetted, a debut novel by a Swedish lawyer with experience in the Middle East and international affairs with the EU administration in Brussels I came away with a B level of pleasure and hopes of a compelling and cohesive story from the author in the future.The story concerns the consequences of fighting the war on terror by outsourcing the effort to private companies.beyond the purview of adequate oversight Here hints of the evil activities of the company, Digital Solutions, are uncovered by two characters Klara is a key aide to the Swedish representative to the EU, already enlightened to the torture and black ops employed by such companies by a friend an ex lover, Mahmoud, who wrote his dissertation on the subject We get fascinating glimpses of her backstory as the child of a CIA operative who put her up for adoption after his wife died a car bomb in Damascus in the 80s George is a successful lobbyist to the EU, whose attempts to rise in wealth and power with his firm lead him to compromise his morality But the illegal designs and tactics of the new client he is a...

    A penetrating novel, given the fact it s Zaner s debut, the impact even prevalent Translated from Zander s native tongue of Swedish absolutely nothing is missed, translation is superb.The plot is full of suspense and subterfuge Gripping, will hold your attention throughout as you burn through the pages absorbed by varying characters and riveting narrative, the plot rather intricate Fast paced, you won t be able to put the book down.The characters come to life as each one is masterfully pulled into the narrative The characters are clearly the building blocks, Klara the apex Aging CIA agent, political aide, black ops all creating a vibrant cast with vital roles, all intriguing.Zander describes environs in a rich manner The reader will feel part of Brussels as well as the isolated Scandinavian island locations Zander s simplistic yet strong writing completes the thrilling reading adventure.A well crafted political suspense thriller addressing guilt, revenge and ...

    This book does not quite live up to its promotional reviews A part of my disappointment probably lies with the fact that this a spy thriller which has never been my favorite sub genre of the mystery thriller This one suffers from an overly large cast of characters Klara, Moody , the titular swimmer, Gabriella, George who all narrate sections of the novel This results in the same scene being repeated between narrators which really slows down the novel s overall pacing And the plot is just slow to begin with A lot of the book s storyline feels predictable and there are no genuine surprises found in these pages None of the characters feel very realistic, and as much as it would be easier to blame the translation, nothing really stands out from that aspect The political angle may be popular across the Atlantic than here,...
