Blurb; Happily settled in Florida, Sonja believes she’s finally escaped the trap set by unscrupulous drug lords. But when her son Tomas is taken, she’s back to square one . . . and Iceland. Her lover, Agla, is awaiting sentencing for financial misconduct after the banking crash, and Sonja refuses to see her. And that’s not all. Agla owes money to some extremely powerful men, and they’ll stop at nothing to get it back. With her former nemesis, customs officer Bragi, on her side, Sonja puts her own plan into motion, to bring down the drug barons and her scheming ex-husband, and get Tomas back safely. But things aren’t as straightforward as they seem, and Sonja finds herself caught in the center of a trap that will put all of their lives at risk. Set in a Reykjavík still covered in the dust of the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption, Trap boasts a dark, fast-paced and chilling plot and intriguing characters.
My Review; A new author for me! A first. I love how at the start of the book there is maps to show the locations in the book and a pronunciation guide for those long, complicated words. Set out brilliantly.
Trap is a Nordic crime thriller that I throughally enjoyed! Fast paced! It shows you the underworld of the drug community. I felt so sorry for poor Tomas stuck in the middle of it all not knowing what is actually going on and I also felt for his mother Sonja.
Clever. Gripping. A page turner of a reader. I awarded four stars and would highly recommend I am going to be reading Liljas previous book Snare as I enjoyed this one. Trap was translated by Quentin Bates so they deserve some credit too.
