I thought this book was good just had a different feel too then other patterson books because it took place in sweden. Didn't really like the ending though. It seemed really quick.

Gone are the days when Patterson wrote books that one remembered as exceptional. However, there are still a few that may not be memorable but are still a lot of fun and this is one of them

Great Novel, I like James Pattersons books very much

Another typical James Patterson book. I never get tired of them, but this wasn't his best. I enjoyed the plot nonetheless, because it was unpredicatble and consistent. The ending was definitely satisying. Some of the detective work was a little too good to be believable, but everything unfolded nicely. I recommend this book as a rainy day read.

One of James Patterson's better ones! Interesting plot, the kind of book you want to start and finish all at once. Good job Mr. Patterson!

This was a weird one, still great, but kind of too out there for me. I absolutley love J.P, I read the whole thing and was captivated until the end, but the sibling thing really threw me.

Normally LOVE his books, and when he co-authors as well: but this book just wasn't as good as all the others were! Really different in the follow through of events so it was harder to follow the plot, that may have been the difference. I just didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would - seeing it was a "James Patterson" book!

Good read.

The co-author had a strong voice in this novel.

Kinda dissappointed with this one. I expected a little more. The story just unfolded too easily.

James Patterson has become a formulaic hack who mainly relies on other writers to create his books. In this work, I found the plot to be quite interesting, mainly because I believe it was written by Marklund who brings a Nordik sensibility to the proceedings. I would be interested in reading other works by her, although I have pretty much given up on Patterson. Interesting settings, especially during the final northern scenes. The final ending is quite trite -- back to Patterson.

This is a shameless attempt to capitalize on the popular Steig Larsson novels. It's set mostly in Sweden and attempts to replicate Larsson's super fast pacing, but it is a lightweight effort. I can't think Patterson actually had much to do with this except for the scenes in which the American detective returns to the US and all of a sudden, the dialogue gets believable and the characters are more than tissue paper.
Pass.

Quick easy read. Different with a European co-author. Definitely had a more gritty taste to it, but I enjoyed it.

My 81-year-old Mom says there's too much swearing in it. Patterson's changed.

I preferred the change to less descriptive violence and sex.
I found it a quick, easy read.
