"Agent John Adderley thinks the end is here for him-the drug cartel he's infiltrated is onto him and there's no way out with a gun to his head. Unless the hit man for said cartel is also an undercover detective. So starts off the globe spanning adventure/detective story, from Baltimore, USA to Karlstad, Sweden.
With a new identity, undercover American FBI agent John Adderley gets a new start with the secret intent of investigating a ten year old crime involving his half brother. The heir to a clothing empire disappeared and all fingers and prejudices point to Billy Nerman. Following the clues, the secrets, and the corruption, John does what he was trained to do, no matter the consequences.
A great debut by the Swedish writing team of Mohlin & Nystrom; the worst part is going to be the wait for the second installment!"--Reviewed by Jennifer
About the Author
Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström grew up together in a Swedish small town and created their first crime novel as 10-year-olds. After working professionally with editorial text and directing/scriptwriting for stage and film for many years, they decided to pick up where they left off in middle school and write a crime novel. They both love crime in all forms and realized their strengths were a fruitful combination: the journalist’s sharp pen mixed with the scriptwriter’s sense of dramaturgy and dialogue. The Bucket List, their debut novel, has been sold in 15 countries.
“An engrossing debut...Evocative questions about family and professional expectations help ground this knotty, plausible story, articulating the mistakes people make with the ones they love. Scandi noir fans will look forward to this complex lead’s further adventures.”
— Publishers Weekly
“Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström’s The Bucket List is a classic Nordic noir thriller—tight, layered, and so chilly that it shivers...Subtle psychological elements make each scene rich... an ambitious crime thriller that crosses a decade of secrets, lies, and family stories.”
— Foreword Reviews
“Scandinavian noir at its finest..the authors’ masterful plot keeps you engaged the entire way through... This is the kind of book that grabs you from the very first page and keeps you firmly in its grip until the thrilling and unexpected conclusion. It’s dark and gritty, and so gripping that you can’t stop until the mystery is solved...The Bucket List is a tour de force blend of mystery and intrigue."
“Boosted by smooth and deft translation by Ian Giles, The Bucket List...weaves in lively side episodes of passion and pretense...The only thing better than the pleasure of this suspenseful and tightly plotted ‘Scandi noir’ investigation is knowing there’s a sequel on the way.”
