I was a bit wary about reading this book because I found the first book in the series to be lacking. Let me tell you, this book was much better than the first in the series. It almost felt as if two different writers wrote the books. In the last book I found Henrik (HP) to be a pathetic jerk but in this one I really liked him and actually started to root for him. Yeah he still had his jerkish moments but they weren't overwhelming. I actually liked HP more than I liked Rebecca in this one. Just because I liked her less doesn't mean I didn't enjoy her storyline any less. I liked that both of them each had their own mysteries to solve. I kept trying to guess what was going to happen but I always ended up wrong. I loved all the reveals towards the end and I am really excited to read the last book in the series.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me to read this.

So far this book is way better than the first in the series. It almost seems as if there were two different writers. Nearly everything is making sense (I'll get to that next), and I am really interested in reading about HP and Rebecca. The only thing that I was a bit confused about were the events that happened with Rebecca. I thought that the whole security drama with her happened in Sweden and then they went to Darfur, but apparently all of that happened in Darfur. I think there might have been a flashback in there some where that threw me off, but it just seemed a bit confusing in regards to where everything happened. I am looking forward to reading more of this book.
