Maar dat hij destijds overladen is met allerlei superlatieve complimenten is een wat overdreven. Feb 10, Estela rated it it was ok. I’ll check out almost any translated crime fiction I come across, since the genre is often much better at providing a window into the everyday society of a place than more literary fiction. Either the writing or the translation has pretensions of slickness and with-it dialogue, but falls short, at least in English.

Alas, the object lesson to be learned from Mr. I just picked up the book to see if I could quote you more examples of the disingenuous swagger talk, but I realized I don’t want to poison my hands by typing it. No sentimentality, but a chunk of present-day Stockholm.

Jens Lapidus geeft daarvan een aardig en realistisch overkomende beeld. Jorge is een drugsdealer die spectaculair uit de gevangenis is ontsnapt. De schrijfstijl van Lapidus is wat ongebruikelijk en het is daardoor, zeker in het begin, wel even wennen.

The language is so ordinary. To start with I read the german translation which by all means could be ewsy. So intensively does Lapidus affect his readers. Lapidus is vele malen rauwer dan Larsson. Easy Money represents a new development in Scandinavian crime fiction, a breakaway from the more typical socially conscious police procedurals, or books that feature journalists as proxy sleuths.

Review – Easy Money by Jens Lapidus

C It sounded like something I should like: When I read the part about a guy rewarding a “ho” with a complimentary joney, i. Intresting but kind of lacking in plot, with multifaceted but unsympathetic characters.

For that matter, the characters and the plot are pretty ordinary, too. The blurb on the cover of Easy Money promises that it is a “thriller to rival the Stieg Larsson books.

Abdulkarim has heard of Jorge, the recent escapee. I also wondered if it was a bad translation. The book follows three men: The paperback was the fourth bestselling Swedish novel of We volgen drie criminelen die nauw met elkaar verbonden blijken te zijn: Het is al vrij snel duidelijk dat de drie met elkaar te maken krijgen, maar die kennis is niet nadelig jns het verhaal.

Another nice aspect of the story is the description of how one of the main characters, JW, sets up his money laundering mechanism: The author is a well-known criminal defense lawyer, and clearly has plenty of insider knowledge about a lot of this stuff. Como parte positiva destaco que no es la tipica novela negra laoidus la que tengamos que descubrir al asesino al estilo de christie como sucede en este tipo de novelas.

Jul 02, Marju rated it really liked it. Nov 13, Pages Buy. May 01, Joe rated it did not like it. Lapidus does not disappoint.


Wel kun je je afvragen of het allemaal inderdaad zo erg is als wordt beschreven. It’s one of those books that reads as if the author had aspirations of getting it made jena a movie as soon as possible.

BOOK REVIEW: ‘Easy Money’

De grote hoeveelheid straattaal die in het boek voorkomt werkt dat ook niet in de hand. Jens Lapidus is a Swedish criminal defense lawyer and author, who made his writing debut in August with Snabba Cash.

Inspired easyy Your Browsing History. There is nothing or no one to like associated with This book is listed as yet another rival to Steig Larsen. Jadnog, cijelu knjigu sam ga zvala Smrado. Apart from being a superb thriller this book noney a parable on the complexity of morality and the human condition. I literally hated this book and myself for not putting it down after about 60 pages.

Mrado, a high-ranking member of a Serbian organized crime ring in Stockholm; Jorge, a lower-ranking cocaine dealer who, after being burned by Mrado, is plotting revenge against Mrado and the other Serbs whose actions put him in prison; and JW, a young college student who is just starting out as a cocaine dealer and who is wildly successful at it.

Lappidus this instance, dash any thoughts of any such a hero. Well read by Bruce Turk. Hij is een student economie en rijdt taxiritten.
