Summary
From one of Sweden{8217}s most successful defense lawyers comes an unflinching look at Stockholm{8217}s underworld, told from the perspective of the mob bosses, the patsies, and the thugs who help operate its twisted justice system. JW is a student having trouble keeping up appearances in the rich party crowd he has involved himself with. He{8217}s desperate for money, and when he{8217}s offered a job dealing drugs to the very crowd he{8217}s vying for a place in, he accepts it. Meanwhile, Jorge, a young Latino drug dealer, has just broken out of jail and is itching for revenge. When JW{8217}s supplier gets wind of Jorge{8217}s escape, he suggests JW track him down and attempt to win his trust in order to cover more area in the drug circuit. But JW{8217}s not the only one on Jorge{8217}s trail: Mrado, the brutal muscle behind the Yugoslavian mob boss whose goons were the ones who ratted Jorge out to the cops, is also on the hunt. But like everyone else, he{8217}s tired of being a mere pawn in an impossibly risky game, and he{8217}s seeking to carve out a niche of his own. As the paths of these antiheroes intertwine further, they find themselves mercilessly pitted against one another in a world where allegiances are hard-won, revenge is hard-fought, and a way out of it all is even harder to come by. Fast and intricately paced, and with pitch-perfect dialogue, Easy Money is a raw, dark, and intelligent crime novel that has catapulted Jens Lapidus into the company of Sweden{8217}s most acclaimed crime writers
