After the disastrous end to their last case, the Intercrime team – a specialist unit created to investigate violent, international crime – has been disbanded, their leader forced into early retirement.
The six officers have been scattered throughout the country. Detectives Paul Hjelm and Kerstin Holm are investigating the senseless murder of a young football supporter in a pub in Stockholm, Arto Söderstedt and Viggo Norlander are working on mundane cases, Gunnar Nyberg is tackling child pornography while Jorge Chavez is immersed in research.
But when a man is blown up in a high-security prison, a major drugs baron comes under attack and a massacre takes place in a dark suburb, the Intercrime team are urgently reconvened.
There is something dangerous approaching Sweden, and they are the only people who can do anything to stop it.

This is the 3rd book in the series. Enjoyed the first 2. Perhaps the reader of those 2 also didn't like this book. In any case, different reader who was not able to catch the needed tone for this author. In other words, much weaker book with a much less appropriate reader.

Ruined by the Reader
The book is a good read. It's a great addition to the Dahl cannon. The return of the characters from previous work is effortless.
No, I can't say there was one. I liked the book's momentum, sense of place and character.
A different reader. One who understands when less is more. Some awful voices, completely at odds with the book (as I read it, and i *have* read it) it's place, pace and characters. If I encounter this reader again, I won't but the book to listen to.
I would like to see the team working again as a team or as individuals or paired. I think they're fully formed and tractable as characters that they could carry stories in their own right.
Never employ the reader again.
