There are books that I immediately start reading because, like all normal people, I pick them up after reading the previous ones. There are also those that I take “just in case” while I’m still reading a book so that I don’t accidentally run out of literature if I read what I have during the weekend 😛 . Fortunately, I work in a library so I can do it 😀 It was the same with the book written by two Swedish authors of the same name – Peter Molin and Peter Nystrem. The book is called “The Bucket List” and won the award for the best debut novel of 2020. But even that wasn’t enough for me to start reading it right away :/ In the meantime, I started listening to books and I liked that concept a lot, so “The Bucket List” languished on the shelf for so long that I already took it to the library to return it. And during breaks from work, one Saturday, I start reading it, then took it home again and finish around midnight.
The book is very exciting and easy to read and the set of circumstances is such that I couldn’t wait for the next page. The main character is John Adderley, an FBI agent, who, escaping from a crime cartel, insists that his new identity be tied to Sweden, where he must go because of a message sent to him by his mother, whom he has not seen for more than twenty years. In order to help, he must investigate an old case, but also beware of hired killers who are on his heels.
Excellent novel, excellent.
