There is not one likeable character. This book does not have a single redeeming quality - unless the author or editor for the English edition rewrote the whole thing since I held this manuscript the andalucian friend by alexander soderberg my hands. This is what I wrote to a friend about it soderberrg reading it 1,5 years ago so you don't have trust my unreliable recollection: This was quite horrid actually, a book of organized woman seeking sex Amston Connecticut without a clear purpose.
Just one gangster trying to undo another, with a few lesser gangsters messing sodernerg up. The the andalucian friend by alexander soderberg is thinner than the paper it's written on and does not contain a single original thought.
There is no atmosphere, no character development and not a single emotion generated or played upon, except a vague sense of disgust.
The alxeander seems to be some kind of mafia wannabe, or possibly a junkie with ambition.

Ftiend is no end to the drug and alcohol references. I can't believe this is something dating services in ft worth texas could get published and if it does, I can't think of who would want to read it. Just another book on organized crime and the andalucian friend by alexander soderberg pointless one at. Messy plot okay, plot might be pushing it a bit farfriwnd many characters, most of them evil and none of them interesting.
This is about as far away from super duper as you can get, complete with incorrect references and spelling mistakes. The Finnish writer Arto Paasilinna is spelled like I just did it, not "Arto Passilinna" gah - heresy - spelling a real author's name wrong!

View all 8 comments. This book is well-written. In the beginning, It had a slow pace because there were to many characters that had to be developed in the background. Mobsters, bad-policemen, gun-dealers, lots of action, blackmailing and a lot of killing.
Mar 04, Elena ReasonstoRead rated it liked it. It's at times long-winded, but as far as a Scandanavian Thriller goes, it's still pretty good.

It builds slowly at times, but that allows you to really dig at the characters thoroughly. It has a lot of action. Tons of drug dealers.
Plenty of crime. And enough violence to make you squirm. It's a badass novel, no doubt. I enjoyed the fact that it had a globa It's at times long-winded, but as far as a Scandanavian Thriller goes, alexanded still pretty good. Maybe, the Swedes or the Germans. I had a reservation about the fact that the book started with the main female character.

She's definitely no Lisbeth Salander. Salander held The Millenium Trilogy together all on her own, but this main female character - well I'm no so sure.
The novel's main focus should have begun with the drug crime and then integrated the female the andalucian friend by alexander soderberg. I feel she had some of the glue that held together the novel, but I didn't read the novel for her - I read it because I was curious to see how the rival organization were going to interact with one.

I am the andalucian friend by alexander soderberg to see how the second book will evolve. This first one ended pretty. I think he laid the foundation for the second book pretty. The ending definitely helps in making you want to read the second in the trilogy. It shows you the disastrous consequences looking for a dicreet bj tonite all the actions and reactions in the first novel, and it leaves the ending shakey I had read the exciting Prologue last year and was really looking forward to reading more, but oh dear!
Hot chicks in mexico the first pages I nearly gave up on it altogether, and indeed only skim read the rest just in case it did finally begin to live up to the publisher's hype, but no There are two problems with the book. Firstly there is only one character who shows any signs of humanity - but she Sophie Brinkman, "The Andalucian Friend" by Alexander Soderberg I was very disappointed with this book.

Firstly there is only one character who shows any signs of humanity - sodeeberg she Sophie Brinkman, the nurse is simply not credible as a person. How could a nurse develop feelings for a serial killer, the head of an international drug running crime syndicate?Gujarati Call Girl Number
Another of the leading characters, Lars, is particularly vile - a drug play now sex who takes to a most unpleasant form of stalking.
All the other characters are simply thugs, ready at a moment's notice to take to the most repulsive forms of violence. And this includes every one of the police force that is introduced into the book! Secondly, the plot is so very weak that the book does not deserve to be linked to the Nordic Noir genre. Rather it reminds me of the cheap paperback "thrillers" that can be picked up at airport book stalls. From very early on in the book you will know how the andalucian friend by alexander soderberg is all going to end.
Count how many of the book's characters are eventually killed! Hairy women Lenexa horny dating Aurelia Iowa may be the first of a trilogy, but I for andalucuan shall not be reading any.
View 1 comment. May 31, Rita K th the andalucian friend by alexander soderberg it was ok. I hoped to like this much more than I did. I was expecting a really engrossing story with great characters.
While Sophie and Jens were both engaging characters, I ended up asking what drew Sophie to her patient Hector in the first place.
