Jens Lapidus’ final installment in his noir trilogy is bound to leave readers on the edge of their seats. The Swedish crime lingo in “Life Deluxe” may present a challenge to new readers, but crime novel–lovers will enjoy it all the same.

Jorge is a drug dealer fresh out of prison. Unsatisfied with his new life as the owner of a Stockholm café, he begins to plot a bold new heist to bring in the big bucks. Meanwhile, Stockholm police plan to dismantle the city’s underground crime ring.

That’s when Martin Häggström enters with an axe to grind. He has given up his life as a police detective and wants to put an end to this criminal underworld without regard for his own fate.

But Haggstrom and others will come up against the king of Stockholm’s crime ring, Radovan Kranjic, and he feels his crown is threatened. Will Radovan still reign at the end of this so-called “perfect heist”?

Lives will be endangered. Relationships will be tested. Credibility will be shaken. Trust will be broken. And, most importantly, the lives of all involved will never be the same.

Anita Dixon is working toward her English degree with a concentration on creative writing at a major Tennessee university. She loves to write and hopes to put her writing skills to good use.
