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.

Aimless young Henrik "HP" Petterson finds a cellphone on a Stockholm train that invites him to play a game: in no time, he's embarking on daring, high-stakes missions that turn his ordinary life extraordinary. HP loves the thrill, and the rewards, but is there a sinister side to the seemingly innocent contest?

Meanwhile, ambitious Detective Rebecca Norm#65533;n is moving up the career ladder in the Swedish Secret Service but is troubled by the handwritten notes she keeps finding in her locker. Whoever writes them knows way too much about her past. HP's and Rebecca's worlds inevitably collide. But if reality is just a game, then what is real?

1st book in a trilogy, but very good on its own. HP is drawn into an adventure game, by his mobile phone. A loner, no permanent job, smoking too much dope, he loves the attention he gets, and wants more. Rebecca, his sister, a police bodyguard, has her own work and personal problems, and when her life collides with HP's, then that's when it all turns upside down and interesting, though possibly deadly.
Looking forward to the 2nd book
