Praise

“Epic… The Andalucian Friend is a crime novel that mixes familial drama — the Guzman crime family is drawing comparisons to Mario Puzo’s Corleones — gang wars, the illegal gun trade, break-the-rules cops and unspeakable violence…The scope of this novel is sometimes astounding and always fascinating.”—USA Today

“Scandinavian crime fiction finds a new voice in Alexander Söderberg. . .[a] dark, intricate debut novel.”—Los Angeles Times

“[A] tense, accomplished debut. . . . Complex but swift, well-written and often grisly. . .There are enough aspects left unresolved to look forward to at least two more books of deadly peril, with new danger at every turn.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“Takes up Stieg Larsson’s mantle in icy, brutal style. . .This adrenalized debut leads you into a European drug ring and introduces an unlikely heroine who’s caught in the crossfire.”Entertainment Weekly

“An enjoyably offbeat thriller about rival gangs fighting over an international drug-smuggling route. . .[Söderberg] writes with feeling about the crushing psychological stress felt by both cops and criminals.”—The New York Times Book Review

“A timely thriller [that] adds some gritty saturated color to the minimal black-and-white palette of Nordic noir. . .Intriguing.” —Mystery Scene

“Imagine The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets The Sopranos, then crank up the intrigue and rip off the knob.  Alexander Söderberg has penned an awesome thriller you won’t want to miss.” —Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Black List

“This gripping crime novel, the first in a trilogy, deserves to stand completely on its own. . .a multistranded plot that holds together as exquisitely as finely wound silk. But, as with the Larsson trilogy, it’s the woman at the center who sparks the engine. By novel’s end, Sophie has realized that ‘she was bigger than she had dared to see.’ We see it, too, and are ready to follow her anywhere.”Booklist (starred review)
 
“A tale of cutthroat mob bosses. . .Söderberg writes exceptionally well-drawn and sympathetic characters . . . and has the chops to move a story along with the best of them.”—BookPage

“Excellent. . .[A] jam-packed plot.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Söderberg is masterful.” Kirkus Reviews
