Stockholm Delete

Dark Stockholm

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Stockholm Delete is a superbly gritty thriller which gets right to the heart of the Stockholm criminal world.

Emilie Jansson has just been made partner at a prestigious law firm when she is asked to work with an unusual partner. Teddy is an ex-con trying to stay on the right side of the law while working as the firm's fixer and Special Investigator.

Meanwhile, a body is discovered in a remote house in the country after what looks like an attempted robbery - and a severely wounded man found near the scene is soon in the frame for murder. Emilie takes on the role of his defence lawyer. But when the trail of evidence leads back to her partner Teddy's wayward past, Emilie begins to wonder what she's taken on...

In Stockholm Delete, Emilie and Teddy become entangled in a complex and dangerous web with deep connections to Stockholm's criminal underworld. Both will be tested in terrible ways. But can they survive long enough to uncover the truth?

From Publishers Weekly

20 February 2017 – This gloomy crime novel from Lapidus (Easy Money and two other books his Stockholm Noir trilogy) focuses on Serbian immigrants. Teddy is trying to go straight after his release from prison where he served time for kidnapping Mats Emanuelsson, a one-time police informer now believed dead by working as a fixer for a law firm. Teddy's 19-year-old nephew, Nikola, who idolizes him, is just out of Spillersboda Young Offenders' Institute and is also trying to stay clean. Meanwhile, Teddy's coworker, newly minted lawyer Emelie Jansson, gets drawn into criminal defense work, against the rules of her upscale business law firm, by defending Mats's son against the charge that he murdered Mats. The complicated narrative unfolds through the viewpoints of Teddy, Nikola, and Emelie. Transcripts of police interrogations with Mats fill in the background. Lapidus tackles such matters as big-business fraud, police corruption, and refugee-related tensions in a dismal "new Stockholm," but interminable financial scheming bogs down what might have worked better as a fast-paced, action-oriented thriller.

Customer Reviews

Interesting storyline

aka. SherleyB.
Not a bad storyline, nice to read a Scandinavian thriller,
looking forward to reading more from Jens Lapidus.....

Complex Scandinavian Crime Thriller

This is the first book I've read by Jens Lapidus but it definitely won't be the last. I love crime thrillers so this book seemed perfect for me and I was eager to read the entire thing after the sampler.

Initially, I found it a little confusing as the timeline jumps back and forward between two different plot threads. Additionally, there seemed to be quite a few characters to keep track of and I was a little confused by the numerous names and nicknames. The legal jargon was also a little overwhelming at times but, as it was integral to the plot, it wasn't out of place.

After about 50 pages, I was hooked by the story. The writing is taut and fast-paced, and the plot was incredibly well thought out. I connected with Emilie and Teddy so was invested in their outcome. This is a complex crime thriller that's definitely worth reading.
