    1. This is a message regarding Stef's review, which sadly is the first review and has five likes. Firstly, Penelope (the girl in the first 21, not 30, pages) is not the protagonist, that point of view was merely to give an insight on the character, character depth if you will. If Stef had continued reading she would've realised that Joona Linna was the actual protagonist. Secondly it is quite disparaging how she gives it one star because of merely twenty one pages in comparison to the whole book, a [...]

    2. Πάει καιρός από όταν διάβασα τον Υπνωτιστή και είχα σχεδόν ξεχάσει τη γραφή του Lars Kepler. Το συμβόλαιο του Παγκανίνι, ξεκινάει γρήγορα, με αρκετούς εμπλεκόμενους, είτε πρόσωπα είτε δολοφονίες, που σε κρατά σε εγρήγορση καθόλη τη διάρκεια της ανάγνωσης. Από τη στιγμή που ανακα [...]

    3. We do not let go of the book easily even if the track is long and where the main characters come out incredibly. The plot is sufficiently conducted not to know what the reasons are and which is at the origin of all these murders.The murders are strange, and disrupt more than one policeman except Inspector Joona Linna who quickly understands that he is not dealing with a criminal. We find ourselves caught up in an important political traffic.

    4. This 500 page book could have been at least 200 pages shorter. The main story about people involved in arms deals, was surrounded by several unnecessary side stories. I enjoyed the previous Lars Keplar book, The Hypnotist. This one was difficult to get into and a disappointment.

    5. Prvo Hipnotizer, pa sad ovoKepler (tj. bračni par Ahndoril) definitivno zauzima visoko mjesto na mojoj listi pisaca trilera. Odlična priča, ovaj puta ulazi u sam vrh švedske politike (izvoz oružja), napeta radnja; zaista s iščekivanjem okrećeš stranice i pratiš razvoj događaja I još jedan (potpuno subjektivan) detalj zbog kojeg mi je ova knjiga izvrsna, je to što se tijekom cijele knjige provlači muzika, a od muzike najčešće, moj omiljeni David Bowie Tako da sam nekoliko puta, [...]

    6. Afinal não tardou muito para que voltasse Lars Kepler e ao seu Joona Linna. E ainda o li em dois diasAinda não posso dizer que Linna tenha conseguido garantir um lugar no meu coração, ao contrário de umas quantas personagens femininas que o rodeiam, mas admito que me agrada sempre o livro que se leia bem, que não seja chato.E 'chato' não é um adjetivo que se aplique a este livro, carregado de cenas de acção. Ao contrário d'O Hipnotista, que tinha umas partes um bocado arrastadas, n'O [...]

    7. I made it approximately thirty pages into this one, and I just can't. I can't read any more.The whole thing reads like a mediocre self-insert fanfiction, and the protagonist is the most hateful one I've ever come across; the first chapter describes a televised debate between a peace activist and a weapons manufacturer, with the manufacturer pwning the activist quite severely, and I was really amused until horrendous realization began to dawn and I understood exactly which one of the two was the [...]

    8. I've seen this book sitting on the shelf at work over the course of the past year, and every time I've seen it, I've thought ".why does a high school library have a book that looks that creepy?" So when I noticed it AGAIN this past week, I figured I should probably read it and decide whether or not it's something that we need in the collection. I had pretty high hopes going into this one. I'm in the mood for thrillers, and Scandinavian crime novels usually deliver. But there was just something a [...]

    9. MUCH better than the first book! The plot was linear and cohesive; you felt like you were in the same story from the beginning to end. The addition of Saga Bauer is a great character, and there were some open-ended things (like did Peter not re-load the gun on purpose?)that left you hanging and wondering about the balance of things at the end of the book. The chapters are short and tight and this is a good thriller.The downside for me is still that Joona Linna isn't that interesting a character. [...]

    10. This is the second book in a developing series based around hard hitting cop Joona Linna. Basically it is one long thrilling experience from the first page. Reminiscent of a James Bond movie this is a novel on a really large scale with not a page wasted as this writing duo take you on a journey of threat, brutal chases and hand to hand conflict. It has action throughout balanced by involved characterisation. It is a mystery you will enjoy reading and a story that will captivate you based around [...]

    11. Καλογραμμένο αστυνομικό μυθιστόρημα, με σφιχτή δομή, το οποίο εστιάζει στον βρώμικο (υπο)κοσμο της (νόμιμης ή παράνομης) πώλησης όπλων, κυρίως σε χώρες που βρίσκονται σε εμπόλεμη κατάσταση, όπου ξεδιπλώνεται το διπλό και ύπουλο παιχνίδι που παίζεται στις πλάτες αθώων ανθρώ [...]

    12. Estou triste e ao mesmo tempo chateada com esta dupla de escritores.Passei de umas magníficas 5 estrelas do primeiro livro, O Hipnotista, para 2 estrelas com este segundo livro. Fiquei desiludida.Os capítulos mais interessantes envolvem a fuga de duas personagens numa ilha do arquipélado de Estocolmo. São realmente de tirar o fôlego e senti que vivi aqueles momentos de pânico com ambos. O problema é que estes capítulos e esta sensação que me fizeram sentir, duraram pouco.A história n [...]

    13. Jsem na rozpacích, už u Hypnotizéra jsem byla Autoři píší čtivě, to bez debat, za mě ale nějak pokulhává děj a to se snažím nesrovnávat s ostatním severem. Joona Linna je sympaťák, mám pro tyhle detektivy nějak slabost, jen mě v prvním díle zklamalo, kam se ubíral děj a tady mě celkově nějak nevtáhnul a do dalších dílů mě láká hlavně ta detektivova linka, o čem se to tam na konci mluvilo a o čem poměrně často dumal.Ale jako odpočinková četba to svů [...]

    14. This was my first read of Lars Kepler the husband & wife team set in Sweden i enjoyed it at the beginning but toward the end was a little drawn out had unnecessary dialogue which could have been settled in half the book, but that is just my opinion.I enjoyed the character of Joona Linna thought he was strong & did his job well i have the Hypnotist on my kindle just hope that one is not as dragged out at this one was.

    15. Kepler returns with another sadistic thriller, placing Detective Inspector Joona Linna in a place of greater prominence. What do a woman found drowned on the dock of a pleasure ship left adrift and a man left hanging in his barren apartment have in common? Leave it to Linna to find the link and vow to bring the killer(s) to justice. Working with the rest of the National Criminal Investigation Division, Linna links his investigation with Saga Bauer from the Säpo's Security division (presumably p [...]

    16. Book 2, in the Detective Inspector Joona Linna seriesThis is another nail-biting mystery with chase after chase and tense situation that keeps coming at every pages or so. This second complex installment looks into two bizarre deaths, one being of Carl Palmcrona, the general director of the National inspectorate of Strategic Products overseeing military exports found hanged at his home and the other of Penelope Fernandez found dead on a drifting boat. And voilà, Linna detective extraordinaire i [...]

    17. Mne ten Joona Lina skrátka nesedí. Dala som 4 hviezdy, ale za celkový dojem, bavilo ma to čítať. Detektívne série založené na hlavnej postave poznám ale aj lepšie. Okolo Keplera je skrátka „veľa kriku pre nič“.

    18. Depois de ler O Hipnotista, O Executor entrou imediatamente na minha lista de livros a ler! Continuamos a acompanhar o comissário da polícia Joona Linna nas suas investigações, desta vez, depois de uma abertura cheia de suspense não só com um homicídio mas também com um misterioso suicídio.Joona Linna vê-se então numa luta contra o tempo para encontrar a militante pacifista Penélope, perseguida por um assassino profissional muito hábil, minucioso e metódico quando percebe que o pro [...]

    19. I passed on reading the first book in this series when it appeared because there was a large pair of bloody scissors on the cover. Even though this one features a knife, I decided to plunge in. The detective, Joona Linna, a Finn living in Sweden (and male) is a fun character.Reviews of this book describe is as "noir" and I suppose it is a bit. As of now, I have gone back to read "The Hypnotist", scissors and all, as well as the third book in the series, "The Fire Witness". (Bloody hammer on the [...]

    20. What a great book! I loved it every bit as much as The Hypnotist, and now I completely understand why it was on the Good Reads "Best of 2011" list.Lars Kepler does a fantastic job of weaving an intricate web of suspense, intrigue, danger, and precarious circumstances to make even the most casual reader want to sit down and read this book in one sitting.Every one of the characters is fully fleshed out, and the book reads like a miniseries would look. You see them, walk with them, and can use all [...]

    21. Neste segundo livro da dupla Lars Kepler são-nos apresentados logo no início da trama dois homicídios: Um de uma mulher que aparece morta numa embarcação e que apesar de ter o corpo seco, tem os pulmões cheios de água; e outro de um director-geral de Armamento e Infraestruturas de Defesa da Suécia em que o enforcamento parece ter sido a causa da sua morte.A questão que se coloca é se estas mortes estarão relacionadas! A polícia não crê que possa haver qualquer relação entre elas, [...]

    22. This new one by the author of The Hypnotist features the same detectives but I confess that while I remember liking The Hypnotist a lot, the characters did not stick in my mind. They might now as they are very well-developed here, and likeable. This is a big fat thriller with a complicated plot that holds together impressively, with many interconnected characters that are all sufficiently well-developed that you don't mix them up---not a small accomplishment! The more I think about the intricate [...]

    23. I welcomed the authors' effort to try to capture the dark side of Swedish arms trade. Sadly I was distracted by all of the misinformation throughout the book. With all of the information out there on Darfur, it was disappointing that the bits on Sudan were poorly researched. I would have preferred if the authors had instead used a fictitious country. The misinformation was so distracting that I had difficulty enjoying the book.

    24. Muito bom. Um livro com suspense, bem escrito e bem estruturado. Um dos aspetos que mais me marcou foi como os autores conseguiram variar a forma de suspense. Pela primeira vez, consegui sentir as ânsias de medo através de um livro. A agitação que senti ao ler a perseguição inicial marcou-se porque até agora só o tinha conseguido pelos filmes. Impressionou-me! Depois o suspense, não tanto de medo mas de expectativa. E também aqui foram muito bons no efeito que produziram.Estranhei algu [...]

    25. Es entretenido pero la verdad es que esperaba otra cosa.Aunque se lee muy rápido ya que sus capítulos son cortos.No creo que vuelva a repetir
